SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, USA: as seen on July 9, 2023.

Last year’s football season for Washington’s professional football team…the mighty Seahawks…ended well with a regular season record of nine wins and eight losses. They were five wins and four losses at home and four wins and four losses while playing on the road. The team who had lost the likes of franchise quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos, was expecting a rebuilding year at best. Little did they know they would have a good season, with Geno Smith quarterbacking them into the play-offs. The Russell Wilson trade gave the Hawks selecting power for this year and they took advantage of the choices to build what may be a Super Bowl contending team!

Living in the Tri-Cities means our community members have the chance to visit Lumen Field in Seattle and cheer on this team in person. With a 3.5-hour drive, you can arrive at the stadium. If the Sunday games are at 1:30 p.m., Tri-Citians can even make it home for work on Monday. If it’s a late afternoon game on the schedule, one night at a downtown hotel adds to the experience. The stadium is within walking distance of most downtown hotels and the walk itself, with the rambunctious game-goers, is a lively, moving party on foot…especially after a win.

The Seahawks are undefeated so far in preseason games, picking off some top opponents. But the real fun starts on September 10th, 2023, when the Hawks welcome the Los Angeles Rams for a 1:25 p.m. game at Lumen Field. The rest of the regular season schedule is as follows:

With the return from the injured list of Jamal Adams, the steadfast play of Geno Smith, and Bobby Wagner rejoining the Hawks, along with star-studded new recruits…we should be in for a fun ride this season. Expectations are high and for good reason.

Getting tickets to the games can be arduous and expensive, but worth the effort. Of course, Ticketmaster sells them on-line. Additionally, patrons can check the local Craigslist for tickets that our local community won’t be using. Also, have friends keep their eyes on FaceBook for deals on tickets. The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce sometimes offer tickets and a bus ride to one game. If they do it this year, this is the best deal to be found and the bus ride with your fellow community members adds to the experience.

The Seahawks are expected to have an excellent season and will be fun to watch with a new powerful defense. While the Legion of Boom has retired, a new circle of thrilling players has emerged. Go Hawks!!!
