Sounder at Heart is reporting that Seattle Sounders are exploring a USL-Reserves affiliation with Phoenix FC. This normally wouldn't be interesting, but given that we have a partnership with Phoenix FC at current, this says some interesting things. Does this mean we're looking more closely at establishing a USL team of our own? Or that we are not interested in continuing our partnership with Phoenix FC next year? There's lots of room for speculation, but facts are slim at current.
