    I feel I can speak freely when it comes to all of the Cascadia Cup matches; Supporters look forward to every single year. Each team play the other two teams three times for a total of six matches. The first time the Sounders face off against the Timbers will be at home on April 26th. The Sounders won two of the three matches in 2014 and had a dramatic come from behind tie in the two teams April 4th match last season in Portland. 

    The Sounders open the 2015 season when they take on the defending Eastern Conference champions, New England Revolution on March 8th. The Sounders will be looking for a bit of redemption from the last time these two teams squared off. The Revolution embarrassed the Sounders 5-0 in New England on Mother’s Day last season. 

    Seattle will get their first crack at current MLS Champion, Los Angeles Galaxy in Carson on Sunday April 12th. The Sounders will be looking to shake off their defeat from the Western Conference Finals. 

    Seattle will get their first crack at the other fellow Cascadia rival, the Whitecaps on May 16th in Vancouver. This match will round out their cross country trip that begins two weeks earlier when they face off against New York City FC at Yankee Stadium with a stop in Columbus the following week.

    The Sounders are the only team in Cascadia that will not head to Orlando City. They play their match in Seattle on August 16th.

    During their schedule release, MLS also announced a new playoff format. I’m not a big fan of the new format, but that is a topic for another day.
