Seattle Sounders deserve every bit of praise for winning the Concacaf Champions League

Seattle Sounders FC won the Concacaf Champions League, the competition that provides the best club in our region the opportunity to play in the FIFA Club World Cup

The Sounders’ 5-2 aggregate victory over Pumas UNAM on Wednesday is a VERY big deal. Not only for the club, but for the entire league. 

No other MLS team has won the competition since the new format in 2008. They are, officially, the best team in the Concacaf region.

Brian Schmetzer’s Sounders deserve every bit of praise for this achievement. 

They have done what most other clubs haven’t done. And no, I am not just talking about winning the title.

This is bigger than MLS Cup, Open Cup, and the Supporters’ Shield. I will give you my opinion on that another day. 

This time, I’ll just point to how consistent Seattle have been since coming into the league in 2009.
