Seattle Sounders are 2019 MLS Cup champions: Rave Green win second MLS title

The Seattle Sounders won their second MLS Cup title in club history when they beat Toronto FC 3-1 in 2019 MLS Cup on Sunday at CenturyLink Field in front of a Seattle record crowd of 69,274. It's their second MLS championship in the last four years.

The Sounders' first MLS Cup title in 2016 also came against Toronto FC when they beat the Canadian side in a memorable penalty-kick shootout at BMO Field in Toronto.

The Rave Green are now one of six teams to win multiple MLS championships joining D.C. United, Houston Dynamo, LA Galaxy, San Jose Earthquakes and Sporting Kansas City.

Watch the highlights here:

Seattle joined MLS as an expansion club in 2009 and they have qualified to the playoffs for all 11 seasons of their MLS existence. In addition to their two MLS Cup titles, Seattle also have one Supporters' Shield trophy (2014) and four U.S. Open Cup titles (2009, 2010, 2011, 2014).

This year the Sounders entered the postseason as the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference (16W-10L-8D, 56 points) and after knocking off FC Dallas and Real Salt Lake at home in the opening two rounds of the playoffs, they shocked No. 1-seed LAFC at Banc of California Stadium in the Western Conference Final to advance to MLS Cup as hosts.
