Sounders-Pumas game looks to be a sellout

I called TicketMaster around 9:30 a.m. today and was told there were about 300 general admission seats ($12) left for Tuesday’s U.S. Open Cup third-round game between the Seattle Sounders and Kitsap Pumas at Starfire Soccer Stadium in Tukwila. There were not any covered grandstand seats ($16) left. A Sounders’ official said capacity at Starfire is 4,500.

Tickets are available by calling 1-877-MLS-GOAL, visiting or through TicketMaster. (The 1-877 number takes you directly to TicketMaster).

The Pumas, meanwhile, are scheduled to train todayat Starfire. The game starts at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

The Sounders FC-Kitsap winner advances to the quarterfinal round to meet the L.A. Galaxy-Los Angeles Blues winner. If Seattle advances the match would be played at Starfire. If Kitsap wins, the Pumas will play the Galaxy at Titan Stadium in Fullerton, Calif., or host the LA Blues at Bremerton Memorial Stadium. Quarterfinal matches are scheduled to begin on July 12.

The Sounders played Thursday and Sunday, and everybody’s wondering what kind of lineup Sigi Schmitt will come up with. Nobody’s expecting to see a lot of regulars. You’re only allowed three reserves in Open Cup games. The Sounders have a deep squad with several players seeing limited time in MLS games, but a lot of action in reserve games. The Sounders Reserves are 6-0-0, facing other MLS reserve squads. Kitsap’s will be well rested. The Pumas of the United Soccer Leagues Premier Development League beat the Colorado Real Foxes 3-1 on Tuesday, June 21.

WEATHER UPDATE: The forecast calls for rain Tuesday and Wednesday.

IF YOU CAN’T GO …: You can watch the game and listen to the broadcast by Arlo White at will also stream the game (audio only).

QUICK TURNAROUND: The Pumas return to PDL play on Wednesday when the North Sound SeaWolves visit Memorial Stadium.
