Climate neutrality: Meet sport’s early adopters
Since the turn of the year, MLS club Seattle Sounders and Real Betis of Spain have joined Forest Green Rovers to become the first batch of professional sports clubs to pledge climate neutrality.
It’s been a barnstorming start to the 2019 MLS season for Seattle Sounders. Four wins out of five – with a 0-0 draw against Pacific northwest rival Vancouver Whitecaps the team’s only blemish – represents its best start to a campaign since joining the league as an expansion franchise in 2009. Only Los Angeles FC, having played a game more, sits above the Sounders in the Western Conference rankings.
