Seattle Sounders FC today announced that the club and its charitable arm, RAVE Foundation, have selected South Seattle’s NewHolly – a Seattle Housing Authority neighborhood located between Beacon Hill and Rainier Valley – as the location for the next RAVE Field. Funding and efforts supporting the construction of the NewHolly field are being championed by Grammy Award-winning artist Ciara and her husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, both of whom are part owners of Sounders FC.
“Following our club’s ‘Family’ event at Yesler Terrace last month, Russell and I were inspired to become directly involved with RAVE Foundation’s mission to build free spaces for play throughout our city,” said Sounders FC Owner Ciara. “We are so proud to support the NewHolly project and the benefits it will have on that entire neighborhood and the south end overall.”
