Qwest Field puts out the welcome mat for Sounders

Seattle Sounders FC are finally home...for now. The club practiced at Qwest Field for the first time today after spending last week in California.

The giant replay screen greeted the players and club with a welcome message. The field surface was a pristine Field Turf green with only soccer markings. It was a gorgeous sunny day.

Media were on hand and filed reports for their papers. In the Seattle Times Jose Romero blogs several photos and a video, too. His official report is here. Don Ruiz blogs his take at the TNT. The club website has notes from Matt Gaschk. Gary Washburn reports in the Seattle P-I.

The Sounders will practice at Qwest Thursday, travel to Portland to play the U of P Friday, and then will play a closed scrimmage with the Vancouver Whitecaps Sunday at Qwest.
