Want to be on Sounders Membership Council and represent Gorilla FC in making our club the best club around?
Join the democratic process by being on the Gorilla FC Ballot and get 25 votes to qualify. Being on Alliance Council has an expectation of attending one meeting a month with fellow council members. If you want to run for Alliance Council with GFC’s support, email gorillafcmembcouncil@
Every year, GFC members run for Sounders FC Alliance Council. The council works hard to represent supporters and fans in meeting with the Sounders front office to discuss issues of importance to us all as Sounders fans. There are numerous issues that directly affect Gorilla FC, so it’s important we use our votes to get GFC on council.
It takes 25 votes from other Sounders season ticket holders to get on council. You can vote at: https://eballot4.votenet.
The current Gorilla FC candidates are Cameron Collins and Sam Chesneau. Please vote for one of them.
If your last name begins with A-M, please vote for Cameron Collins.
If your last name begins with N-Z, please vote for Sam Chesneau
GFC needs your help
We are looking for an IPAD donation for our membership table inside the stadium. If you have an old IPAD (yes the IPAD 1 even) we can have as a donation, GFC will give you a tax deductible receipt for the donation!
GFC MEMBER OF THE MONTH AWARD!!!

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.
