From today's Sounders news release:

Play the Day Away, it's Kid's Day Inside Seahawks Stadium

Loud screaming, faces painted, no these kids aren't ready for battle, these kids are ready to cheer on the Seattle Sounders at the first Sounders Kid's Day at Seahawks Stadium on July 29th. Just $5.00 will get kids and fans into the exhibition game between Sounders and the Hibernian Saints as well as an opportunity to meet the Sounders.

The soccer match will begin at 11:00 am with pre-game activities beginning at 10:00am. This won't be your average soccer match; instead of two-45 minute halves there will be three 30 minute sessions of Sounders soccer. The two "breaks" will include a talk by the Sounders players about the importance of staying fit and healthy and some fancy skills demonstrations by the Sounders and maybe even a few kids!

The activities for the kids will include a Rally Booth where the kids can show their Sounders Spirit, foosball tables, music, give-a-ways and a Meet and Greet Session with the Sounders players after the game.

You can order tickets by calling the Sounders office at 1-800-796-KICK, or get your tickets at the gate; the Seahawks Stadium Box Office opens at 9:00am. This soccer game will certainly be one of the hottest events for kids this summer, donít miss out!
