Seattle Sounders

10 posts in this topic

Decided to give managing in the MLS a go in FM10 and choose Seattle at random and noticed that they pay just $1 a year to rent out Qwest Field!!.. one of the best looking stadiums in the States IMO. Any one know the story behind this or is it just a mistake in the database?

I imagine that in actuality they play there rent free, however in the database this has to be entered as £1. There are a few clubs in the game in a similar situation.

Cheers.

Yeah, I am pretty sure they play there rent free. I haven't actually heard much about their deal at Qwest since the season started.

I think Paul Allen also owns Qwest Field. The guy is crazy rich...

Comedian Drew Carey is a part owner of the Sounders. Is he included as part of the Seatle board on FM?

He is.

Yes Paul Allen pushed hard for Qwest. It was built with mostly public money. Not sure if he owns it though.

The Sounders were the first team I managed in the MLS (after unsuccessful attempts to manage Watford), and I won a championship in the first season. :D I largely used a 3-1-1-2-3 attacking setup, adding more defenders and playing defensive/contain with a lead of at least two goals. Mostly stuck with the original lineup, but found a great pickup in the free transfer market - Henri Camara. Camara and Montero both had about 20 goals apiece in that championship season, while Brad Evans, Nate Jaqua and Freddie Ljungberg all had between 7 and 10. Pius Ikedia, a Nigerian attacking midfielder whom I picked up via free transfer, was my equivalent of a basketball "instant offense guy off the bench"...

He took over as majority owner in my second season with the Sounders. But the way we ended the 2010 season wasn't funny...four straight losses and an easy elimination in the MLS semifinals...

That game's all over and done with, though. Restarting all saved games now that I've got the latest patch...
