Seattle Sounders Launch Web Site in Spanish

Yahoo! News, August 28, 2009


On Friday, the team [the Seattle Sounders] announced a partnership for the new Web site with La Raza del Noroeste, an Everett-based Spanish-language newspaper owned by The Washington Post Co.

Jorge Rivera, the newspaper’s editor, will contribute to the site, updating news about players and the team in Spanish. {snip}

The site will also carry a video show about the Sounders produced by a Seattle affiliate of the Spanish language network Univision.

Sounders officials say traffic to the team site has increased from Central and South America since the team signed players like Colombians Fredy Montero and Jhon Kennedy, and Costa Rican Leo Gonzalez.
