Seattle lands World Cup qualifier

 

The U.S. national team’s road to the 2014 World Cup will go through the U.S. city that has embraced soccer unlike any other American city. U.S. Soccer confirmed on Thursday that the United States will host Panama in a World Cup qualifier on June 11 at CenturyLink Field. Seattle has averaged 43,144 for Major League Soccer games last year. A temporary grass surface will be installed for the game, and the Sounders’ June 8 home game against Vancouver will be played on grass.
