USL Final [R]

Any Canadian city would be envious of the Starfire complex. It is operated as a Washington State non-profit corporation and was originally paid for by a private benefactor, one of the Seattle based dotcom multi-millionaires. It was built as a community resource, not a huge stadium and is only a fallback venue for the Sounders.

Well lets not forget they still have Memorial Stadium it is still around granted it is a dump and the artificial surface is even worse than PGE park.

No it's not. They installed fieldturf awhile ago. However watching the game with those football lines would suck.

Looks like you need climbing gear to get to the back row.

You also can't sell beer as it's a school stadium.

Oh Daniel. We all know you bring those special binoculars to games....

A big plus its next to the Jimmy Hendrix museum at least it was still there the last time the Caps played the Sounders in the playoffs at Memmorial.

The Jimmy Hendrix museum is at the Experience Music Project,

which is a musician's Disneyland (four floors of music displays,

and a recording studio). Paul Allen (ex-Microsoft) built it.

Next door is the Science Fiction Museum, housing all the robots,

aliens, and cool gear from the movies & TV.

It's weird that the crappy Memorial stadium is next door to all

these cool sites.

And totally off topic: my son and I will be going to Seattle Center this weekend for NWBrickCon(a LEGO convention). Along with the already mentioned facilities there are also Key Arena (NBA), an amusement park (with roller coaster), Seattle Science Center, Children's Museum and of course the Space Needle!
