There are many major U.S. cities that come to mind you think of football, like Chicago or Green Bay. However, most people do not think of football when they think about Seattle. Rather, most people associate Seattle with its beautiful scenery, great ports, and wonderful atmosphere. People who live in Seattle, though, know and love their professional football team the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks joined the NFL in 1976 and have yet to win a Super Bowl. They did get close in 2005 when they won the NFC Championship, but that is as far as they have gotten. In the past few years, the Seahawks have been led by their star quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. Other notable players currently on the team include wide receiver Deion Branch and running back Julius Jones.
The team's colors are very similar to those of their major league baseball counterparts, the Seattle Mariners. Perhaps to show some continuity between the various teams in the city, both wear navy blue, white, and a teal green, called "Seahawks green" when referring to the football time, but "northwest green" when talking about the Mariners. Unlike the compass logo of the Mariners, however, the Seahawks have a mean looking bird with a substantial size beak. This appears on their helmets.
The Seahawks play their home games at Quest Field, which is actually in the city of Seattle, unlike some other professional teams who play their games in suburbs outside the cities that they represent. The city's professional soccer team also plays its games there. It can seat an astounding 67,000 people and for that reason has been used for other events including the MLS Cup. That number of people can really make for a loud environment which has given the Seahawks an advantage.
If you want to see the Seahawks play either at home at Quest Field, or on the road, check out the ticket availability here on EventTicketDepot.
