ECS Leadership Role:
My primary role is communication with the Sounders Front Office and handling requests for more ECS information from members, media, interested parties, and houseplants. I work with our fantastic leadership team to make sure this group is well run and that we can support the Sounders to the best of our abilities. This primarily takes the form of putting smart, talented, passionate people in position to do things they're good at and getting the hell out of the way. Less meddle, more metal.

Who Are Ya?
I joined ECS in 2009, took over as ECS Travel Monkey in 2010. Keeper of OUR Cascadia Cup. I also wore a dress to a match one time because fuck cancer, that's why. Follow me on twitter: @CursedFrogurt37

ECS Leadership Role:
I am an advisor to the ECS Board of Directors. My role is to provide input and advice on any and all issues regarding the ECS. I captained one of the tifo crew teams in 2009, and I occasionally capo, home or away.

Who Are Ya?
A Seattle native and Sounders supporter since 1975, I am one of the founding ECS members from the 2000’s. My first Sounders away match was 1976 for the NASL playoffs v. Minnesota, and I have since appeared at 25 or so away matches in USL and MLS. Outside of football, I am a homebrewer and overall beer aficionado, a software engineer by trade, and I live in Snohomish with my wife Leesa.

ECS Leadership Role:
I am a Co- Founder of the ECS, an ECS Board of Directors member, and as such I am an adviser to ECS Leadership. I provide input on any ECS matters with the understanding that my input be heard, but will not always be the direction taken by ECS Leadership. I act as a mentor and confidant to the Game Day Operations team. I also provide long term vision for the ECS and direct the group to where I would like to see it go.

Who Are Ya?
I am a person who is dedicated to his club, and to his fellow supporters. I am passionate about football, and believe that the sport needs supporters as much as supporters need the sport. I have spent many hours immersing myself in the many types of supporter culture that exist, and I try to take the best from each.

ECS Leadership Role:
Historically, I am the person who does the work that nobody else wants to deal with. As Treasurer, I try to maximize the money we receive from (memberships/donations/etc.) and make sure it is spent mainly on Tifo and projects that will maintain the ECS presence in the stadium for future generations. Overseeing revenue/spending of all departments in ECS and trying to make sure things are done with quality, but still under budget. As a Web Admin, I spend a lot of time auditing the (Shop/Forum/Membership) Databases & Web Tools and making sure they are all working.

Who Are Ya?
Moved to Seattle in 2000, before I could legally drink. The first thing I did was search for a MLS team since I had some free time starting a new job with no friends. I discovered that there was only the A-League Sounders, whatever that was. I still went to a couple games back in 2001 to prepare for WC2002 in Japan/Korea. Ended up in Japan for a month and came back to Seattle soccer crazed. Started seriously following Sounders in 2005 and joined up with ECS in late 2007 when talks of ECS FC began.

ECS Leadership Role:
I am an advisor to the ECS Board of Directors. My role is to provide input and advice on any and all issues regarding the ECS, and to understand that my comments are almost always considered but not necessarily agreed on or acted upon. I have been complimented for my ability to play devil's advocate and to find flaws in the details. My aim is to make sure that those who make the decisions regarding the ECS are exposed to all points of view that might have an effect on the decision being made. I take pride in being able to stay calm and composed in heated debates so that I can take a step back and consider what is the best course of action for the ECS.

Who Are Ya?
I have gone to live football games since I was six years old. I joined the ECS in 2006 when I visited Seattle from my native Finland for the first time, and my relationship with the ECS was solidified the following year when I was able to stay in Seattle for the entire season. With my 5000 mile long trip to home games I might be the supporter with most miles covered in the brief history of the MLS Sounders. On game day I like to be just one of the supporters, but I have also stepped up to the capoing role when duty has called. Due to my distance from Seattle I may not be able to attend many matches in the near future, but I still consider Seattle my second home town. Follow me on twitter: @finnfanECS

ECS Leadership Role:
I am one of the two Co-Presidents of ECS and I am both the ECS Director on the newly formed Cascadia Cup Council and an ECS representative on the SSFC Alliance Council. I am on the ECS Board of Directors and my primary role is long term planning and assisting with coordination of work within the ECS-I ensure tasks are being taken care of and that we are on schedule and budget. I work with all our group’s components to ensure a consistent message and vision is carried throughout the ECS. My mission is to provide ensure that ECS can grow sustainably without compromising its core ethic.

Who Are Ya?
I am a 31 year old engineer that grew up in Italy following Juventus. I moved to Seattle in 2007 and had to support the Sounders. I love the game of soccer in every aspect. I play on ECS FC team in the GSSL. I support from the Brougham End and I always try to promote soccer and the sounders. UP THE SOUNDERS! UP THE ECS! Follow me on twitter: @fuzzyforeigner
