Seattle announced the friendly on Monday, adding to an impressive list of exhibitions the Sounders have hosted. The match will take place on July 19, less than a week after the conclusion of the World Cup.

Tottenham's visit it part of a preseason tour of the U.S. They are also scheduled to face the Chicago Fire on July 26.
