Sharing CenturyLink Field with the Seahawks will cause the Sounders to play tonight with some NFL markings on the pitch, as you may have heard.

The shared stadium also could come into play if the Sounders advance to the next round, as the Seahawks are at home vs. the Jets on Nov. 11, which coincides with a scheduled Western Conference final. If the Sounders are to host that opening game, the match will be moved back to Monday night.

Here’s the league schedule for the conference finals and MLS Cup:
