COMMUNITY IMPACT

The Sounders Community Trust (SCT) was formed to assume a 20% interest in Seattle Sounders FC 2 (S2), influence the direction of the club, and support overall access to soccer in our greater Seattle area. SCT exists not only to realize the dream of fan ownership in North American professional soccer, but moreover for us to join together through the sport to benefit our local community.

Initial funding is by a founding member campaign extending through early 2015. Campaign proceeds go towards capital improvement projects at Starfire Sports Complex (Starfire), the long-time home and training facility of Seattle Sounders FC and future home of S2. Starfire aims to build community by delivering an inclusive, world-class soccer experience to every player, and planned capital improvement projects will improve offerings to local players and fans.

S2 and SCT share goals of enriching supporter involvement. Projects include enhancements to the fan experience, additional facilities for Seattle Sounders FC staff and players, and added multifunctional spaces to benefit the greater Seattle soccer community overall.
