For the first time in club history, the Seattle Sounders will host the MLS Cup at CenturyLink Field on Nov. 10.

Toronto FC’s 2-1 win over Atlanta United on Wednesday made the Seattle locale possible. That, in addition to the Sounders’ upset against LAFC Tuesday night.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, Nov. 1 at 10 a.m.

The Sounders have faced off against Toronto FC three out of four seasons in the title match. Seattle won on penalties in 2016. Toronto won the title in 2017.

Toronto FC returns to the title game just two seasons after winning the title with one of the greatest years in MLS history. The Canadian team slumped badly in 2018, missing the playoffs, but now finds itself playing for another championship after two straight impressive road victories.
