A star-studded Seattle Sounders side strolls into Commerce City this Sunday, with the US Open Cup already sparkling in the trophy cabinet but with their main focus being a first MLS Cup.

When Clint Dempsey steps onto the field at Dick's Sporting Goods Park this weekend, it will be his first MLS appearance at the stadium, and his first since featuring for the US national team in their 1-0 win over Costa Rica on March 22, 2013, in what has since become known as the Snow Clasico.
