Gunars Blukis of North Seattle recently won the opportunity to watch a Seattle Sounders FC match from a unique location: the Washington’s Lottery sideline couch. He won the cushy seat by playing Sounders FC Man of the Match, which is held at every home match.

Blukis visited a Man of the Match booth inside the stadium and chose “alternate selection” as the Man of the Match. Blukis chose correctly, and his ballot was randomly selected, earning him a seat on the coveted Washington’s Lottery sideline couch at the match against the Houston Dynamo on August 10.

At the start of the match, Blukis and his wife, Andrea, were taken to the Washington’s Lottery sideline couch, one of the closest seats to the field. Blukis received a Sounders FC jersey and both enjoyed complimentary food and refreshment services throughout the entire match.

Blukis is both a Washington’s Lottery player and a Seattle Sounders season ticket holder since the team’s first season. He told Lottery officials the craziest thing he has ever done to support the team was taking a bus trip up to Vancouver, B.C. with one of the spirited Sounders booster clubs. “We haven’t missed very many games over the years,” he said.

Man of the Match is open to all Sounders FC home match attendees 18 years of age and older by completing a ballot with their selection for the Man of the Match. If the Sounders FC wins, 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 loses, all of the ballots are placed into the drawing.
