Here come the kicks: Sounders schedule released

The full Major League Soccer 2009 schedule is now online at www.MLSnet.com.

Seattle Sounders FC have posted their schedule at SoundersFC.com.

Seattle will begin life in MLS with two straight home matches, March 19 against New York and March 28 against Real Salt Lake. In their first ten matches SSFC will have five home and five away. The longest streak of home league matches in a row is three at the end of June and into July when Colorado, Houston and Chicago come to Seattle. In between those visits the Sounders are also expected to host Chelsea and perhaps Barcelona as the league schedule thins out in July.

ProstAmerika.com has a look at the 2009 slate here.
The Seattle Pitch has the full pre-season and regular season fixture list.

Here are the home / Qwest Field dates for 2009

Thursday March 19 New York (6:00 PM)
Saturday March 28 Real Salt Lake (7:30)
Saturday April 11 Kansas City Wizards (7:30)
Saturday April 25 San Jose Earthquakes (7:30)
Sunday May 10 Los Angeles Galaxy (12:00 Noon)
Saturday May 30 Columbus Crew (7:00 PM)
Saturday June 13 San Jose Earthquakes (7:30 PM)
Wednesday June 17 DC United (8:00 PM)
Sunday June 28 Colorado Rapids (1:00 PM)
Saturday July 11 Houston Dynamo (1:00 PM)
Saturday July 25 Chicago Fire (12:00 Noon)

Saturday August 29 Toronto FC (1:00 PM)
Saturday September 19 Chivas USA (2:00 PM)
Saturday October 24 FC Dallas (7:00 PM)

First glance: get points early because the season ends with 5 weeks between home matches. Sigi Schmid and Adrian Hanauer were philosophical about the club's chances of making the playoffs after the schedule revealed such a late-season imbalance (TNT).
