FC Sounders vs. Barcelona FC
2009 - August 6, Thursday
The 2009 European UEFA Championship champion has paid a visit to Seattle to play against the local team.
I wasn’t able to get a representative picture of the traffic before the game. This is the only picture that I have.
The North Gate view of the Qwest Field where the game was played.
Here’s the lineup through the North Gate. I had a aluminum canteen full of water which I had to throw away. =(
This is the view of the “tower” – of which name I just made up – after passing the ticketing turnstile.
Here’s the view of people coming through the turnstile.
This is a shot taken while trying to figure out which stairs to take to get to our seats.
We were sitting near the edge of the stadium perimeters; these were cheap corporate seats.
Here the players from both sides enter.
I just wanted to take a shot at the North side panel.
The 2nd half was a game of the substitutes; all the lineup players were on the bench. It was a bit boring.
It was so boring such that the crowd started the human wave.
Here’s a shot taken on our way out of the stadium shortly after the game. The night view of Seattle is beautiful as much as the day view.
After getting out of the stadium perimeters, we went for a quick drink at a bar called Fado.
