With less than 24 hours to go until game night, you may be stressing out about where to watch the Sounders home opener tonight.

If you’re not one of the few lucky ticket holders, we’ve got good news: you can still watch the game around other loyal fans. You’ll just have to stay seated and at least six feet apart.

Although it’s late, we still recommend you call to make a reservation as soon as possible.

Here are seven spots to catch the Seattle Sounders home opener:

In the old pre-COVID days around 2019, this family-friendly bar and grill would get pretty rowdy on big game days. With 12 beers on tap and 15 televisions, this year is sure to get massive cheers and whoops, although everyone will remain seated at their own tables.
