Adrian Hanauer will keep his job as general manager of the
Seattle Sounders FC after season-ticket holders and fan alliance
members overwhelmingly voted to retain him.
The results of the Sounders’ first general manager vote were
announced on Thursday night during the organization’s yearly
meeting. Out of 13,775 total votes, 13,271 were in favor of

vote will take place every four years.
The Sounders also re-signed defenders Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and
