Signs point to Seattle hosting a June World Cup qualifier
Well according to the reporters who are in Honduras for today's World Cup qualifier, U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati hinted pretty strongly that Seattle will get a game, most likely the June 18 match against Honduras.
Based on Gulati's comment, seems Seattle will indeed host a qualifier in 2013, most likely vs. Honduras June 18. #usmnt

Sounds like Seattle fans just might get their wish of having a World Cup qualifier at CenturyLink Field. June 18 vs. Honduras a good bet.

Gulati coy about Seattle as a WCQ venue. Sly smile. Seems as if it will happen. We'll know soon
