Seattle Sounders change ownership

The Seattle Sounders Women, a member of the United Soccer Leagues’ W-League, announced a change in ownership. Fellow USL organization, the Tacoma Tide F.C. of the men’s Premier Development League, has acquired the women’s franchise.
The Sounders are four-time semifinalists (George Holland)With a previous desire to expand the Tide organization into the W-League and the knowledge of how important the Sounders W-League team is to the development of girls’ soccer in the entire state of Washington, Jennings stepped up to acquire the team with the assistance of Adrian Hanauer, the former owner of the USL-1 Sounders and current minority owner and General Manager of the MLS Sounders, and Teddy Mitalas, Sounders W-League Coach & Starfire Sports Complex Director of Operations – a pair of individuals who have been at the forefront of the Sounders existence and success in the W-League.
The W-League team will continue to play their matches at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, WA. The team is considering a name change to link it to its brother-team, the Tacoma Tide. Mitalas will continue to act as GM and Head Coach for the ladies.
