Here are some Cascadia Cup basis from the Sounders:

2014 Cascadia Cup
Saturday’s match at Portland will kick off the 2014 Cascadia Cup – a regional competition that was founded in 2004 by the largest supporters groups of the three Pacific Northwest clubs: the Emerald City Supporters, Timbers Army and Vancouver Southsiders. Seattle will play four of its six Cascadia Cup matches on the road, including the first three contests. The first rivalry match at home is set for July 13 against the Portland Timbers, and the competition will conclude on October 10 when Sounders FC hosts the Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

The Whitecaps FC currently hold the Cascadia Cup after winning it for the first time in the MLS era last season. Sounders FC won the Cup in its first year in MLS (2011), and the Timbers won the 2012 edition. All three teams will look to become the first repeat winners of the MLS era this season. Overall. Seattle has won the Cascadia Cup three times, including the USL era (2006, 2007 and 2011).
