Tacoma FC to host Seattle Sounders again in 2008!

The Tacoma Tide and Seattle Sounders have found room on their schedules to continue their I-5 rivalry in 2008.

(Photo gallery links embeded below.)

The clubs will play on Tuesday July 8th at 7:05 PM at Curtis High School in University Place, Tacoma. In 2007 at that same venue the Tide surprised the Sounders by jumping out to a 2-0 halftime lead before Seattle rallied for a 2-2 draw. TFC went undefeated at home last year.

The clubs have just that one 'regulation' match in their history, but have also played two "Kids Day" affairs. Those matches were broken down in to 3 30-minute periods with breaks between for Kids Day events. In 2006 the Sounders edged Tacoma 2-1 at Qwest Field on Kids Day. In 2007 Seattle bumped the Tide 3-0 on Kids Day.

Below is a video from the 2-2 draw in 2007.
