SEATTLE, WASH. - Major League Soccer today announced that Sounders FC leads all MLS clubs with four players among the top 25 best-selling adidas jerseys list for the 2022 regular season. This year, Rave Green forwards Raúl Ruidíaz and Jordan Morris cracked the top 10 at sixth and ninth respectively, while midfielders Cristian Roldan (14th) and Nicolás Lodeiro (16th) also ranked in the top 20.
