Who We Are

La Barra Fuerza Verde (BFV) is the spirited supporter group of Seattle Sounders FC (SSFC).  As a Barra, we promote culture, spirit, and community.  While many of us have a global identity, the beautiful Pacific Northwest is our home, and Sounders is our club.  Our purpose is to bridge the Seattle Sounders FC SSFC with the Pacific Northwest Latino Community, and all Communities alike.  We welcome all fans who seek an atmosphere with international flair.


BFV started the way all great movements do; over beers, fútbol, and good company.  A core group of people had regularly met prior to Sounders matches and took an interest in involving itself integrating into the supporter culture with and connecting with the Latino fan base.  After spending several months chopping it up, networking, and organizing, we launched in for the 2012 season and also petitioned to be a subgroup within ECS.  Coordination is offered by the BFV Board, and direction and energy comes from the BFV Teams/Committees.

What We Do

As traditional supporter groups do, we have prematch parties ("pachangas") (party), away match viewing events, and participate in a number of futbolfútbol teams.  We can be found in Section 121 Lower of the stadium.  Our commitment is to be a part of the local fútbol community.  and we have a number of annual events, such as La Copita youth tournament, a community barbecue, and participation in local festivals.  We have BFV Teams/Committees exist for members to get involved itself in all aspects of La Barra.
