TACOMA, Wash. -- Tacoma Tide FC today announce South Sound Soccer Sunday to be held July 17 at Curtis High School's Viking Stadium. The event will be a soccer double header featuring a W-League match between the Seattle Sounders Women and Colorado Force at 1 p.m. and an International Friendly between Tacoma Tide FC and English side Port Vale FC at 4 p.m.

South Sound soccer fans can buy a single ticket for entry to both matches online through brownpapertickets.com.

“We are very excited to be bringing this event to the greater Tacoma area,” said Tide owner Mike Jennings of the Sunday spectacular. “First fans will get to see the highest level of women's soccer in the Northwest, and then they will see what we believe is a first for our community...an international friendly with a historic English club taking on our hometown side.”

The Seattle Sounders Women are preparing to host the W-League Championships at the end of July at Starfire Sports Stadium in Tukwila, Wa. The match against Colorado will be an important stepping stone towards gaining playoff form.

Port Vale FC will be making a historic journey to Tacoma as part of their 2011 North American summer tour as they prepare for the upcoming Npower League 2 season. Head coach Micky Adams has recently brought in a slew of new talent that he undoubtedly will want to see on display during the Valiants' tour.

“This is an important day for soccer in South Sound, and for the Tide,” concluded Jennings. “We are reaching out with this great event to see how much support we can achieve.”

Tide return to Curtis High School

South Sound Soccer Sunday will be held at Curtis High School in University Place, near Tacoma. The Tide recently moved the final four home matches of the season back to the venue, which was the club's original home between 2006 and 2010. Viking Stadium is located at 8425 40th Street West in the Tacoma suburb.
