To fellow ECS members,

La Barra Fuerza Verde (BFV) is excited and honored to be officially recognized as an Emerald City Supporter (ECS) new subgroup. Collaborating with fellow ECS members, we anticipate building a pride in membership that demonstrates the enthusiasm of Sounders FC fans. With support and guidance from ECS leaders and members, we have been working avidly since June 2011 to build our supporter group. While we have a lot of work ahead of us, we know we are in good company.

Fútbol is not only a part of the lifeblood of Latin American culture within the U.S., Mexico, Central and South America, but around the globe. In Seattle we recognize the growing support of fans for SSFC. We value the organizational work and cultivation of the game ECS has offered, and seek to replicate this work within our communities. Additionally, we hope to serve as a bridge between Latin@ fans in the PNW and ECS. We look forward to welcoming Sounders fans from all backgrounds to celebrate fútbol in Seattle.

In the spirit of building community and supporting our Sounders we invite all ECS members to join us at Merchant’s Café & Saloon for pachangas prior to each home game. We look forward to building on an already strong fan base with all members of the ECS this year as we unveil our supporter group and make our presence known – Somos Sounders.

You all made a hell of a showing last night! Great 2-poles! Great participation! Great etc.! I'm excited for you guys; and I'm definitely excited to have you all a part of ECS.

Also, I love the t-shirt you're repping on the About page of your website. If/when those are made available to the ECS masses I've love to get one.

Great to have you guys on board. Looked great last night.

On a side note seeing as how 121 has no substantial sub group in it. I'd love to see you guys sitting in 121 and help us get 121 on point. A roucoues subgroup would be awesome at that.

Can't wai to see you guys at fuel

(sorry for the derailment)
