Seattle Sounders to host Borussia Dortmund for July friendly

The Seattle Sounders will host Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund for a friendly at CenturyLink Field on July 17, the club announced Tuesday. 

The match will come between two Sounders home games in MLS — July 14 against Atlanta United and July 21 against the Portland Timbers

“We’re excited to welcome a storied club like Borussia Dortmund to CenturyLink Field for the first time,” Sounders COO Bart Wiley said in a statement. “Bringing world class opponents to Seattle has been a tradition for Sounders FC going back to 2009, and we couldn’t be happier to once again host one of the biggest clubs in Europe. Before then, however, we will enjoy cheering them on as they fight for the Bundesliga title over the next few weeks.”

Dortmund currently sit second in the Bundesliga, a point behind Bayern Munich with four matches left to play in their season. The club visited the west coast last year for a friendly with LAFC.
