Seattle Sounders FC has announced changes to their season-ticket package for the 2015 season. The most significant changes include the addition of a 19th match and a price hike.

The price increase is between $1 and $4 per game, depending on the area of the stadium. Sounders owner and general manager Adrian Hanauer said, “it’s like a 9 percent total increase due to the higher cost and additional match.”

The package includes all regular season home matches, one friendly and the addition of a 19th game. That additional 19th match will be either a two-for-one for the CONCACAF Champions League group stage matches, the first MLS Playoff match if the Sounders fail to qualify for the continental competition, or a rebate for the 2016 season should Seattle fail to qualify for either.

“Champions League is something that is really important to our club,” Hanauer said. “We’ve talked about wanting to be a global brand. In order to be a global brand we have to win our region.”
