King County Executive Dow Constantine tonight issued the following statement following the Seattle Sounders' victory in the MLS Cup.
“They fought, and they won. Congrats to the Sounders for bringing the MLS Cup to Seattle. Our team’s march to the championship was an inspired comeback -- from last place to the Championship. Toronto played a great match but the Sounders, led by Coach Schmetzer, had destiny on their side.
"Fans across the region welcome the 2016 Sounders in the Parthenon of champs including the 1979 SuperSonics, 1991 Huskies, 2004 and 2010 Storm, and 2013 Seahawks. We love you Sounders, we do.”
