The Seattle Sounders Women is an American women's soccer team, founded in 2001. The team is a member of the Women's Premier Soccer
League, the second tier of women’s soccer in the United States. The Sounders play their home games at Starfire Sports Stadium in
Tukwila, Washington, 6 miles south of downtown Seattle. The team's colors are green and white.
The team was a sister organization of the men's Seattle Sounders team, which played in the USL First Division. Following that team's
reorganization into the Seattle Sounders FC of Major League Soccer, the team's ownership was taken over by Mike Jennings, owner of
the United Soccer League franchise Tacoma Tide (Sounders U-23). In 2011, Cliff McElroy & Lane Smith of Datec Inc. became majority owners
while Mike Jennings has maintained a minority stake.
