The language of “the beautiful game” is universal, and at no time will this be more evident than at 6 p.m. Wednesday, when the Seattle Sounders FC play for the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup trophy. The match from Livestrong Sporting Park in Kansas City can only be seen on the Spanish-language GolTV on channel 784. There are no TV broadcasts of this game in English.
Comcast does not play any role in choosing where the game is televised. But we are pleased to be involved in hosting some opportunities to view the game live.
This will be, we assume, the fourth victory in a row: as the club says on its website, “Seattle is one step away from a feat that hasn’t been accomplished in 100 years of soccer in America.”
We’ll show the game at Westfield Southcenter Shopping Center in the Comcast On Demand Lounge. (click on that link to see its location in the mall near Macy’s). We chose this because it’s our largest such location, but to warn you, the location could be crowded. We suspect diehard Sounders fans won’t care, since we stand up for the games anyway. We will show the game on four HD screens on the wall.
In addition, we’re working with three great places where you can not only cheer and watch the game but also eat and drink, in Kent, Tacoma and Lynnwood:
Kent: Clubhouse Sports Bar, 10432 Kent Kangley Road
Lynnwood: The Inn Sports Bar and Grill, 16716 Highway 99
Tacoma: West End Pub and Grill, 3840 Sixth Ave.
