Emerald Spires & Golden Scarves

This past weekend the Seattle Sounders FC embraced their inner artist and honored a local legend.

To commemorate the visits of 2 of the soccer worlds legendary clubs (Chelsea FC & FC Barcelona) the Sounders commissioned local artist Dale Chihuly to create a token of appreciation to be presented to the visiting teams.  Chihuly himself was on hand Saturday for the presentation of the Emerald Spire.

Also during the pre-game festivities the Sounders presented Chihuly with the Golden Scarf, an award given at the beginning of each game to someone who has contributed greatly to the Puget Sound community.
