Each October the NFL and its 32 teams "go pink" for breast cancer awareness month. It now seems that the close connection between the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders FC has allowed the Sounders to follow suit.
RENTON , Wash. - The Sounders FC will dedicate Saturday's match vs. Toronto FC to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and to launch activities to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m.
The match will be played with a commemorative pink adidas match ball, all players will be wearing pink ribbon patches on their jerseys, pink adidas sweat bands and utilize pink sideline towels provided by Gatorade.
