McDonald's of Western Washington and Sounders FC have signed a multi-year agreement making McDonald's an official partner in the quick service restaurant category.

"We are thrilled to be teaming up with Seattle Sounders FC - a club whose legacy is truly unmatched," said Alan Finkelstein, McDonald's of Western Washington Operators Association President and local McDonald's owner and operator. "Our local McDonald's owners, managers and crew members are some of the most loyal Sounders fans across the Puget Sound.

Washington's Lottery joins Sounders FC in a multi-year deal as Presenting Partner of the Sounders FC & RAVE Foundation 50/50 Raffle.

"Partnering with the Sounders FC for the 50/50 raffle isn't just about supporting the team - it's about supporting our communities," said Joshua Johnston, Director of Washington's Lottery. "With each ticket sold, the Sounders are doing more than offering fans a chance to win big; they're also raising funds for the RAVE Foundation, a fantastic organization that provides children across Puget Sound with programs that inspire them, and gift them the joy of free play. We are excited to be a part of this team that is ensuring that no child is left on the sidelines, because each one deserves an opportunity to thrive."

Present at every regular-season home match, the 50/50 raffle allows fans to purchase raffle tickets from sellers located throughout the stadium from the time gates open through the 50th minute of play. The fan with the winning ticket receives 50 percent of the total amount raised through the raffle sales of the match, with the other 50 percent benefiting RAVE Foundation, the official charitable partner of Sounders FC. In its first season in 2023, the 50/50 raffle raised over $175,000 to support RAVE Foundation's mission.

Washington's Lottery now joins as the presenting partner of this fundraising endeavor, working hand-in-hand with Sounders FC to support RAVE Foundation's work to build small fields for free play and invest in programs that use soccer as a vehicle to inspire youth and strengthen communities. This year's 50/50 raffle also supports important community organizations aligned with Sounders FC's social justice arenas for change. Those partner organizations can be found at

Dark Horse Wines joins the club in a multi-year partnership as Official Wine Partner of Sounders FC.

"We are excited to be partnering with Seattle Sounders FC and its enthusiastic fans," said Alex Keyes, Sr. Manager - Dark Horse. "Dark Horse believes in overdelivering on expectations by providing a high-quality wine at an affordable price. And as the Sounders are also a team that consistently outperforms, we believe the partnership is a perfect match."

As Official Wine Partner, Dark Horse Wines and Sounders FC are working together to raise awareness throughout the club's large and dedicated fan base about the luxury of high-quality wine at an affordable price point. Dark Horse will also have a significant presence at Sounders FC home matches encouraging fans 21 and older to sip some Dark Horse while cheering for the Rave Green.

About Dark Horse Wines: Dark Horse is a true winemaker's wine, compelled and founded on a singular mission: to deliver the distinction & opulence of a high-end wine at a price that our friends could actually afford. To do this, we leveraged winemaking techniques usually reserved for much more expensive wines and worked closely with local growers to get the first pick of grapes from the vineyard. The result was a wine that people usually mistake for a $20 wine even though it costs less than half the price and a wine that lives up to its namesake - Dark Horse. Dark Horse is available at retailers nationwide and in various size formats, 750ml (SRP: $9.99), 375ml can (SRP: $5.49). Visit to locate Dark Horse at a store near you.
