Talk about US Leagues and the US National team here.

Tomorrow, it will be April, the month that the Sounders Women return to the pitch in exciting form; this season, we host the W-League Final Four and are, quite literally, 2 wins from a cup!

Those two wins aside, the 2011 season brings many questions to the table. Some familiar faces are back this year, highlighted by Lyndsey 'Mighty Mouse' Patterson, but some heavy losses have been dealt. Keeper Katie Hultin is out, amongst others.

All shifting aside, Leighton & Co. are anxious to have a big year and sights are set on the cup, nothing less. The ladies have been back on the pitch practicing for a few weeks now and seem to be bringing a more physical form to Starfire this summer. Physicality, combined with the heady and speedy play of attacking third should provide for some exciting football.

The first preseason match is against Western Washington University on April 21st, 7pm at Starfire. *more on that later

Anyhow, don't be an April Fool: GET YOUR RIDICULOUSLY AFFORDABLE SEASON TICKETS NOW, add to your scarf collection, and witness a historic run to the W-League Cup.

Stay tuned! Information about game preparation, tifo, news & away travel will be posted both here on the forums and on the AUX BLOG. http://ecsaux.blogspot.com

If you would like to help out in any way, pm me, Bonnell, and I'll get you to work.

Season Tickets can be purchased Brown Paper Tickets (A very sincere 'thank you' to the Sounders Women/Tacoma Tide FO for choosing against the scam that is Ticketmaster).

Hey, what ever happen to the match between them and ECS FC. Of course we would have to combine the teams I don't want by boys getting their asses handed to them. :mrgreen:

Aren't our jerseys similar? Perhaps if this goes down, we do this as Shirts Vs Skins. Just an idea.

Yay! I never had a chance to go to one of these games in the past; the pre-season match vs SPU is in my backyard! OK, technically 2 blocks away bit still...no excuse not to go.


Edited to add:
The April 28th match vs SPU @ Interbay Stadium should be FREE!
