The Cascadia Responsibility Challenge
MLS is working with a non-profit organization called TEAM Coalition this season to promote responsible fan behavior and prevent drunk driving with many MLS clubs. One project on which we are collaborating is the Cascadia Responsibility Challenge. We hope you will agree it is worthwhile and that you are willing to support the message of fan responsibility for Seattle Sounders FC fans this year.
The Cascadia Responsibility Challenge was created as a contest for the fans of the Seattle Sounders FC, Vancouver Whitecaps FC and the Portland Timbers. The concept of responsible fan behavior while drinking – separate from the designated driver program – is new this season. The concept came from conversations with supporters group representatives from across the league at the Supporters Group Summit at MLS Cup 2011.
You’ll see that there are 3 ways for Sounders FC fans to earn the Sounders points in the Challenge – designated driver sign-ups at Century Link Field, making an online pledge to be responsible and “liking” Facebook comments posted by the Sounders about the Challenge.
We are proud to launch the Gorilla FC Sounders Score vs Timbers, GFC plants a Tree program!
This year, we will plant a tree for every goal that the SSFC scores vs the Timbers. At those games, we will display how many trees will be planted. At the end of the year, we will call for volunteers and $ to get the trees.

Rain City Pariah
For the first time ever, Gorilla FC has announced an addition our family. Rain City Pariah Football Collective (RCP) is a Seattle Sounders FC Supporters Collective and Gorilla FC subgroup dedicated to the Arts. The mission of Rain City Pariah is twofold. First, it is to celebrate the rich history of the Arts in Seattle by creating a subgroup of GFC that both follows the credo and code of GFC and incorporates those from the Arts communities (or fans of the Arts communities) into GFC. Second, RCP will seek to support the local Arts Organizations, especially those that provide arts opportunities for children. For more information visit www.facebook.com/raincitypariah or to pre-order a membership visit www.raincitypariah.com.
