on the Washington Lottery sideline couch

Kristeena Sabando of Lake Forest Park recently won the opportunity to watch a Sounders FC match from a unique location: the Washington’s Lottery sideline couch. She won the cushy seat by playing Sounders FC Man of the Match, which is held at every home match.

During the March 29 match, Sabando visited a Washington’s Lottery booth inside the stadium and predicted Kenny Cooper as the Man of the Match. At the end of the match, Sabando had chosen correctly, and her ballot was selected, earning her a seat on the coveted Washington’s Lottery sideline couch at the match against Colorado Rapids on April 26. “Everyone laughed at me for picking him,” she said. “Now who’s laughing?” she joked.

Sabando and her husband, Ron, were taken to the Washington’s Lottery sideline couch, one of the closest seats to the field. Kristeena received a Sounders FC jersey and complimentary food and drink service throughout the entire match.

Sabando and her husband are self-proclaimed super fans. “It was really amazing walking out onto the field and seeing the couch,” said Sabando. “It was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. It was fantastic, and I couldn’t have asked for a better day.”

During the match, she shared pictures with Washington’s Lottery, and wrote, “Are you kidding me? Sunshine and chocolate pie … thank you Washington’s Lottery!”

The Sabandos are season ticket holders, and attend every match home they can. The couple claims they wear Sounders FC gear all the time, even on non-game days. “All of our clothes are Sounders green,” Sabando said.

Man of the Match is open to all Sounders FC home game attendees 18 years of age and older by completing a ballot with their selection for the Man of the Match. If the Sounders FC win, the fans’ ballots with the correct player selected are placed into a drawing for the chance to win the Washington’s Lottery sideline couch experience at the following home match. If the Sounders FC lose, all of the ballots are placed into the drawing.
