ECS Tifo 2018

The Sounders set sail from Seattle in a storm, disappointed with how last season ended and a clear goal this season to host MLS Cup. Our ship is battle worn and shows the scars of previous seasons. But with those battles comes experience and the crew has celebrated the start of the MLS 10th season with a new hashmark on the bow. This ship is ready for war: we want all the plunder and we will take no prisoners.


This 3 piece display is 9,500 square feet of fabric sewn together with over 2000 feet of seams, used over 40 gallons of paint and includes 700 small flags to extend the waves from the curtain into the ECS section. It was produced in one session of 12 days with Thursday’s CCL display by dozens of ECS members totaling approximately 500 hours of work. Tifo projects like this aren’t possible without the help of our volunteers and we need your help. For more information on how to get involved check the tifo production box on our volunteer form, visit the tifo forum and follow ECSTifo on twitter. We have lots of opportunities throughout the year!
