CenturyLink Field is a multi-purpose stadium in Seattle, Washington, United States. It serves as the home field for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League and Seattle Sounders FC of Major League Soccer. It was originally called Seahawks Stadium but was renamed Qwest Field on June 23, 2004, when telecommunications carrier Qwest acquired the naming rights. It was then given its current name in June 2011 after the acquisition of Qwest by CenturyLink. The complex also includes the Event Center with the WaMu Theater, a parking garage, and a public plaza. The venue hosts concerts, trade shows, and consumer shows along with sporting events. Located within a mile of Seattle’s central business district, the venue is accessible by multiple freeways and forms of mass transit.
The stadium was built between 2000 and 2002 after voters approved funding for the construction in a statewide election held on June 17, 1997. This vote created the Washington State Public Stadium Authority to oversee public ownership of the venue. The owner of the Seahawks, Paul Allen, formed First & Goal Inc. to develop and operate the new facilities. Allen was closely involved in the design process and emphasized the importance of an open-air venue with an intimate atmosphere. The stadium is a modern facility with views of the skyline of Downtown Seattle. The stadium can seat 67,000 people.
The crowd at CenturyLink Field is notoriously loud during Seahawks games. On September 15, 2013, during a game against the San Francisco 49ers, the fans broke the Guinness World Record for loudest crowd roar at an outdoor stadium with 136.6 decibels. The record was broken on October 13, 2013, at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium, home of the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs with a roar of 137.5 dB, but fans reclaimed the title on December 2, 2013, during a Monday night game against the New Orleans Saints, with a roar of 137.6 decibels. Arrowhead reclaimed the title on September 29, 2014 reaching 142.2 dB in a Monday Night Football game vs. the Patriots. The noise has contributed to the team’s home field advantage with an increase in false start penalties against visiting teams. The stadium was the first in the NFL to implement a FieldTurf artificial field. Numerous college and high school American football games have also been played at the stadium.
CenturyLink Field is also designed for soccer. The first sporting event held included a United Soccer Leagues Seattle Sounders match. The USL team began using the stadium regularly for home games in 2003. The MLS expansion team Seattle Sounders FC, began its inaugural season in 2009 at the stadium. CenturyLink Field was the site of the MLS Cup in 2009. The venue also hosted the 2010 and 2011 tournament finals for the U.S. Open Cup. Sounders FC won both times and new attendance records were set each year it was hosted at CenturyLink Field. On August 25, 2013, the Sounders broke a new home field attendance record when 67,385 fans turned out to watch them play the Portland Timbers.

The Seattle Seahawks are a professional football team in the National Football League (the NFL). The Seattle Seahawks play in the National Football Conference (NFC) West Division with three other teams: the St. Louis Rams, the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals. The Seattle Seahawks have not won any Super Bowl Championships. Qwest Field, located in Seattle, Washington, hosts all Seattle Seahawks home games.
In December 1974, the NFL granted an NFL expansion franchise to the City of Seattle. The NFL also awarded another franchise to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in early 1975, and both teams began play in the NFL in 1976. Lloyd Nordstrom led the consortium of Seattle-based businessmen and community leaders which solicited the NFL for the expansion franchise and he signed the expansion franchise agreement with the NFL on behalf of the group. Unfortunately, Mr. Nordstrom did not see a single regular season Seattle Seahawks contest as he passed away just months before the team played its first NFL game in September 1976.
The Seattle Seahawks struggled during the early years of their existence. The expansion draft only brought “old-timers” and “unwanted” players from other NFL teams, and Head Coach Jack Patera did a poor job of drafting and managing the team in the early years. In 1976, Seattle’s first year in the league, the team only won 2 games. The team’s first win came against the other 1976 expansion franchise, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, when the Seattle Seahawks pulled off a 13-10 victory in a defensive struggle in Tampa Bay (the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did not win a single game during that 1976 season). The Seattle Seahawks first home victory came against the Atlanta Falcons in a 30-13 offensive explosion on November 1, 1976. During the first 7 years of its existence, the Seattle Seahawks only recorded 2 winning seasons (back-to-back 9-7 records in 1978 and 1979), and they did not make the playoffs once.
Following the strike-shortened 1982 season, things started to go in a positive direction for the Seattle Seahawks. The Seattle Seahawks hired Chuck Knox as their new Head Coach and Head Coach Knox gave the team the confidence it needed to compete year in and year out for NFL post-season play. For the next 6 years, the Seattle Seahawks never finished with less than a .500 record, they advanced to the playoffs 4 different times, they played in their first AFC Championship Game in 1983 and they won their first AFC West Division title in 1988. In 1983, although the team started the season with a 6-6 record, the Seattle Seahawks won 3 of their last 4 games to advance to the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. In the Wild Card round of the playoffs, the Seattle Seahawks defeated future Hall of Fame Quarterback John Elway and the Denver Broncos 31-7 to record their first ever playoff victory. In the Divisional round of the playoffs, the Seattle Seahawks defeated another future Hall of Fame Quarterback, Dan Marino, and his Miami Dolphins, 27-20 in a thrilling come from behind victory. However, in the team’s first ever AFC Championship Game, the eventual Super Bowl Champion Los Angeles Raiders defeated the Seattle Seahawks 30-14 to prevent the Seattle Seahawks Cinderella story run to their first ever Super Bowl berth. Following that 1983 season, Head Coach Chuck Knox was voted the AFC Coach of the Year and Running Back Curt Warner was voted the AFC Rookie of the Year.
In 1984, despite an early season-ending knee injury to Running Back Curt Warner, the Seattle Seahawks road the arm of Quarterback Dave Krieg and the heads of legendary Wide Receiver Steve Largent and compiled a then franchise-best 12-4 record, including a stretch of 8 consecutive victories. The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Los Angeles Raiders 13-7 in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, but lost to the Miami Dolphins 31-10 in the Divisional round of the playoffs. The Seattle Seahawks would not win another playoff game until the 2005 NFL playoffs when the team would advance to its first ever Super Bowl berth. The Seattle Seahawks did not make the playoffs in 1985 or 1986. The Seattle Seahawks lost to the Houston Oilers 23-20 in overtime in the Wild Card round of the playoffs in 1987. In 1988, the Seattle Seahawks finished atop the AFC West Division for the first time with a 9-7 record, but bowed out of the playoffs early with a disappointing 21-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
From 1989 through 2002, the Seattle Seahawks finished an NFL regular season with a winning record only 3 times, and advanced to the NFL playoffs only once. Although the Seattle Seahawks endured many losing seasons during this stretch, the team also made a bold move when it hired well-respected coach Mike Holmgren in 1999. Mike Holmgren had previously coached the Green Bay Packers to a Super Bowl victory in XXXI and Seattle Seahawks management had full confidence in Holmgren’s ability to act as both General Manager and Head Coach. In his first season, the Seattle Seahawks finished atop the AFC West Division with a 9-7 record. But once again, the loyal Seattle Seahawks fan base met with much disappointment when the Seattle Seahawks lost a heartbreaker to the Miami Dolphins 20-17 in the Divisional round of the playoffs. Despite building a 4 point lead late in the 4th quarter, the Seattle Seahawks defense caved in with less than 5 minutes to play as Dan Marino drove the Miami Dolphins 85 yards to score the winning touchdown. The Seattle Seahawks failed to make the playoffs in Mike Holmgren’s next 3 seasons, but the team was moving in the right direction under his guidance. In 2002, the Seattle Seahawks faced several changes. The Seattle Seahawks moved from Husky Stadium, their home for 2 years, to their current home, Qwest Field, also known as Seahawks Stadium. In addition to the stadium change, the NFL made the Seattle Seahawks change conferences. The team was moved from the AFC West to the NFC West because the NFL wanted to maintain traditional divisional rivalries (like the Dallas Cowboys against the New York Giants, the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles even though the Dallas Cowboys were not really located near any of their NFC East opponents) and make room for the expansion Houston Texans in the AFC. The Seattle Seahawks struggled that year, finishing in 3rd place in the NFC West with a 7-9 losing record.
Following the 2002 NFL regular season, Mike Holmgren relinquished his role as the General Manager of the Seattle Seahawks and focused his full attention on his head coaching duties. Since that management shift, the Seattle Seahawks have been one of the most dominant teams in the NFC and have made the playoffs each of the last 3 years, including their first ever Super Bowl berth in 2005. In 2003, the Seattle Seahawks finished in 2nd place in the NFC West with a 10-6 record. But the Seattle Seahawks lost a Wild Card playoff round game to the Green Bay Packers when Al Harris returned a Matt Hasselback interception for the game winning touchdown just 4 minutes into the overtime period. In 2004, the Seattle Seahawks won their first NFC West Division crown with a 9-7 record. However, once again, the Seattle Seahawks suffered another heart-breaking playoff loss following a Marc Bulger touchdown pass to Cam Cleeland with a little over 2 minutes to play giving the St. Louis Rams a 27-20 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. The Seattle Seahawks would have to wait another year to make a run at their first ever Super Bowl berth. In 2005, the Seattle Seahawks finally lived up to the hype finishing in 1st place in the NFC West for the second consecutive year with a franchise best 13-3 record. Quarterback Matt Hasselback and Running Back Shaun Alexander led an offensive juggernaut all season long. While the Seattle Seahawks offense piled on the points, the Seattle Seahawks defense shut down opposing teams’ offenses. In the Divisional round of the playoffs, the Seattle Seahawks easily defeated the Washington Redskins 20-10. In the NFC Championship Game, the Seattle Seahawks defense dominated the high-powered Carolina Panthers offense as they rolled to a 34-14 victory and their first ever Super Bowl berth. But their dream of a first ever Super Bowl Championship fizzled 2 weeks later as the Seattle Seahawks ran into the one of the hottest teams in the NFL, the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Pittsburgh Steelers had won all 3 road playoff games to advance to Super Bowl XL. And while Super Bowl XL was marred by controversial officiating that many critics felt aided the Pittsburgh Steelers, the game was still a poorly played uneventful match won by the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-10. Even though the Seattle Seahawks failed to win the much sought-after Championship, the team is poised to make another run at the NFL Super Bowl Championship in 2006.
The Seattle Seahawks have finished atop the NFC West 4 straight seasons from 2004 through 2007 and have won at least 1 playoff game from 2005 through 2007. During the 2007-8 NFL season, the Seattle Seahawks won 10 games and defeated the Washington Redskins 35-14 in the wild card round of the playoffs. The Seattle Seahawks traveled to Lambeau Field (Head Coach Mike Holmgren's former stomping grounds) and despite taking a 14-0 1st quarter lead, the Seattle Seahawks lost to the Green Bay Packers 42-20 on a snowy day in which Green Bay Running Back rushed for over 200 yards and 3 touchdowns and Packers Quarterback Brett Favre threw for 3 touchdown passes. Although the Packers loss was disheartening, the future still looks bright for the Seattle Seahawks and the 5 straight playoff seasons is a franchise record.
Hall of Famers
Only 4 players associated with the Seattle Seahawks have been inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. Ironically, only one of those players is primarily known for his work with the Seattle Seahawks. Wide Receiver Steve Largent played his entire 14-year NFL career with the Seattle Seahawks.
