Seahawks owner Paul Allen released a statement Thursday regarding a potential new arena in Seattle, as did Seahawks/Sounders FC president Peter McLoughlin and Sounders FC general manager and owner Adrian Hanauer.

Allen: “It was a sad day when the Sonics left Seattle, a move I opposed. It’s exciting to think about the NBA coming back to Seattle and renewing the rivalry with the Portland Trail Blazers. However, it is too early for me to comment any further without a specific plan or proposal to review.”

McLoughlin and Hanauer: “We support anything that is good for the Seattle community and downtown development. Both the Seahawks and Sounders believe that the economic and cultural benefits of professional sports are a central and important contributor to any community’s growth.”
