The MLS returns to the fold with another set of fixtures this weekend as Seattle Sounders move across the border to take on Vancouver Whitecaps on Sunday. Both teams have been impressive in recent weeks and will want to win this game.

Vancouver Whitecaps are in sixth place in the MLS Western Conference standings and have improved after a slow start to their campaign. The Canadian outfit played out a 1-1 draw against Los Angeles FC last week and will want to return to winning ways this weekend.

Seattle Sounders, on the other hand, are at the top of the league table at the moment and have been exceptional this year. The Sounders were held to a draw by Los Angeles Galaxy in their previous game and will need to bounce back in this fixture.

Today marks the announcement of the Executive Committee and brand platform to bring the FIFA World Cup 2026™️ to Seattle, known as SEA 2026. Follow @Seattle_2026 for more updates! #SEA2026MORE ➡️ sea2026.com https://t.co/rZvenqWAjb
