Voting closed 17 July 2017.

Why update?

The original Constitution was written in 2010 and ratified in an Alliance-wide vote in 2011.

That document has served the Alliance well; however much has changed in over six years.

Several key additions and changes to the 2011 document were proposed; and this was reason enough to refresh the Constitution. Major additions include the structure for GM Vote of Confidence and Recall Vote, as well as the addition of the Executive Committee.

2017 Constitution and Changes

A full list of changes to the Sounders FC Alliance Constitution – along with discussion of these changes.

General Manager Recall and Vote of Confidence

In November 2015 the Alliance Council and Club announced an agreement relating to General Manager Recall and Vote of Confidence.

This is Democracy In Sports – and you have a say.

Supporter Group Recognition

One of the most hotly discussed topics during the refresh of the Constitution. In early 2017 our four Supporter Groups met with Alliance Council to agree this framework.

Annual Business Meeting

The End-of-Year Annual Business Meeting is an opportunity for all Alliance Members to engage with the Club and Alliance Council to review the past year – on and off the field.
