2023 Sounders FC-OL Reign Doubleheader Taking Place June 3 with Both Teams Facing Archrival Portland
February 8, 2023 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Seattle Sounders FC News Release
SEATTLE, WASH. - Seattle Sounders FC and OL Reign today shared that the previously announced 2023 doubleheader matchday at Lumen Field - featuring the two teams playing back-to-back matches on the same day - has been scheduled for Saturday, June 3.
Both clubs are facing their Portland nemeses, with Sounders FC playing the Portland Timbers at 1:30 p.m. PT followed by OL Reign taking on the Portland Thorns at 5:00 p.m. PT.
While both Sounders FC and OL Reign call Lumen Field home, the two teams hosting matches on the same day gives fans the rare opportunity to watch both of the region's topflight men's and women's clubs host a combined event, celebrating soccer for all.
The inaugural doubleheader in 2021 was a first for Seattle's MLS and NWSL sides and saw both teams battle the Timbers and Thorns, respectively, drawing a then-record NWSL crowd of 27,248 for OL Reign's match, followed by 45,737 in attendance for Sounders FC.
This year's doubleheader provides the opportunity for Puget Sound soccer to prove its mettle and regain the NWSL attendance crown, which was taken by the San Diego Wave last year in a match against Angel City FC that drew 32,000. Fans also have the unique chance to send off U.S. Women's National Team players, as the game marks the final league match before the USWNT travels to New Zealand for the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™.
As in 2021, this year's doubleheader is being treated as a single-ticketed event, with one ticket providing access to both games. Sounders FC's single-match tickets are currently on sale, so fans who purchase a ticket for the June 3 match receive access to both of the day's games with that ticket.
Sounders FC's Season Ticket Members receive the Reign-Thorns match as part of their existing ticket package, with tickets for June 3 now updated to also include the OL Reign match as part of that event day. Members have the ability to manage those tickets in a similar fashion to any of their usual games.
To purchase single-match tickets or any other Sounders FC ticket packages, fans can call 877-657-4625 or email Sales@SoundersFC.com. Complete information on all of the Rave Green's ticket packages can be found via SoundersFC.com/Tickets.
