The Seattle Sounders FC kicked off their 2014 season last weekend with a huge win over Sporting Kansas City. In conjunction with the start of soccer season, the WALLY team kicked off the 2014 Foos Cup Tournament presented by PEMCO, and if you’re a lot like us, then you love to Foos!
On Sounders’ game days, the atmosphere at CenturyLink Field is lively and there’s no shortage of excitement. Before entering the stadium to watch their beloved Sounders go toe-to-toe with opponents, I Know I Am, I'm Sure I Am Sounders FC Fans have the opportunity to challenge fellow Sounders fans in a friendly, yet competitive match of foosball.
Don’t you worry, the WALLY team is here to give you the complete low-down on what it takes to foos.
Rule #1 is to have fun!
The 2-on-2 tournament takes place during Soccer Celebration, which opens 90 minutes before first kick. We have two foosball tables, so a maximum of four teams can foos at once. The objective is to score as many goals as you can in five minutes.
Once time is up, the winning pair receives an official 2014 Foos Cup t-shirt as well as bragging rights. The tournament is officiated by the WALLY team, who also moderates play. At the end of Soccer Celebration, we crown the team with the most goals as the Match Leader for the day.
Match leaders not only earn a spot at the top of the leaderboard for the day, but they also get their photo featured on SounderVision and their team name announced over the CenturyLink Field PA.
The only thing better than being a Match Leader is being the Season Leader. The team with the most goals at the end of the season wins the grand prize, which will surely impress any diehard Sounders fan!
The winning team receives two tickets for the Sounders final regular season home match on October 25, 2014, two VIP sideline passes, two replica Sounders FC jerseys, and a trophy! How about that?

How YOU can get in on the action
We always look forward to seeing familiar faces, but love meeting new people as well! If you’re heading to a game this season, make sure you stop by the WALLY van. We’re located outside on the CenturyLink plaza during Soccer Celebration. The best part is that you don’t even need a game-day ticket to play, and while you’re there, make sure you ask the WALLY team for your free souvenir photo!
We’ll see you soon, and BRING ON THE FOOS!
