The turning of the calendar doesn’t do much to slow the steady rush of Sounders games … at least not immediately. Between MLS, Open Cup and a friendly, the Sounders play six games this month. But five of those are clustered in the first 18 day.
Here’s how they line up:
Wednesday at Real Salt Lake (MLS)
Saturday vs. Colorado (MLS, Brian Mullan and perhaps Steve Zakuani at CenturyLink)
July 11 vs. Chivas USA (U.S. Open Cup semifinal at Starfire)
July 15 at New York (MLS)
July 18 vs. Chelsea (friendly at CenturyLink)
July 28 at Colorado (MLS)
