Seahawks celebration spreads to Safeco Field

Seahawks AP

The 12th Man will invade Seattle’s baseball stadium on Wednesday.

The Seahawks have announced that Safeco Field will be made available to those who can’t get inside CenturyLink Field to watch the Super Bowl victory parade and attend the short presentation to be made at the team’s home stadium.

The two-hour parade commences at 11:00 a.m. PT, finishing at Century Link Field.  Tickets to Safeco Field for those who couldn’t get tickets to CenturyLink Field will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

While it’s unclear whether Safeco Field will also be full, it’s the first time we can recall a championship celebration spilling over from the team’s primary facility into another one.

    Best fan base in all of sports all time. And it’s not even close

    The PEDhawks Superbowl victory rings as hollow and disingenuous as the feigned, artificial halftime performance of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

    Feigned.

    Artificial.

    Asterisk.

    As always, downvote if you agree!!!

    Phillies 2008 parade they used Citizens Bank and The Linc

  4. unitasftw says: Feb 4, 2014 9:09 PM

    Give peyton that defense and they would go 19-0

  5. grapes911 says: Feb 4, 2014 9:14 PM

    The Phillies filled up most of Lincoln Financial Field back in 2008 for their World Series celebration.

  6. volcom2143 says: Feb 4, 2014 9:15 PM

    When the phillies won the World Series in. 08 , citizens bank park was filled and so Lincoln financial field

    Most irrelevant champions ever.

  10. jpash42 says: Feb 4, 2014 9:32 PM

    When the Phils won the World Series in 08, the Linc was used for the same thing and was full. If and when the Eagles win a Super Bowl I’m sure Citizens Bank will be packed also, they may even need the Wells Fargo center.

  14. kaoticbandito says: Feb 4, 2014 9:38 PM

    Different sport, but the Phillies celebration filled up The Linc and Citizen’s Bank in ’08.

  15. unbridledsexy says: Feb 4, 2014 9:40 PM

    That’s cause Seattle loves their Hawks. The city is behind this team like no other.

  16. aceakking says: Feb 4, 2014 9:44 PM

    Baseball sucks.

  17. gabe77 says: Feb 4, 2014 9:46 PM

    The Phillies celebration in 2008 spilled over into Lincoln Financial Field.

  18. seaeagle707 says: Feb 4, 2014 9:49 PM

    Championships and Seattle are not synonyms. Great seafood, maybe. Terrific coffee, okay. Rain, definitely. World Champions? First time in my tenure upon the Blue Marble. Who can say for certain, when it will ever happen again?

    Seattle is Happy Land, for the present.

  19. wkdblc52 says: Feb 4, 2014 9:50 PM

    I’ll be there !!! Once in a lifetime day !!

  20. seaeagle707 says: Feb 4, 2014 9:51 PM

    I didn’t include the Sounders, because I detest “that” form of football.

  21. montym232 says: Feb 4, 2014 9:51 PM

    I live in Denver and one of the local radio hosts had the audacity to say the Broncos would beat the Seahawks 7 out of 10 times if they met up!

    I hope they watch the parade on tv!

    Go Hawks!

    Happy for Seattle — it must have sucked rooting for the Mariners and Sonics for all those years.

    There is another sport called baseball where in 2008 in a city called Philadelphia the Phillies parade filled both Citizens Bank Park and Lincoln Financial Field. So yes it has happened.

  27. seahawks80 says: Feb 4, 2014 10:08 PM

    Can’t wait to repeat

  28. liamj55 says: Feb 4, 2014 10:08 PM

    Both stadiums were filled for the Philadelphia Phillies 08 parade.

  29. yournuts says: Feb 4, 2014 10:13 PM

    To all the stupid 49er fans who wore tee shirts that said “Anybody but the Seahawks.”

    Choke on it!

    Seahawks superbowl champs. Hey Kaepernick, I guess Peyton didn’t get your memo about being able to pick us apart?

    Choke on it Colin!

  30. usdcoyotesfan says: Feb 4, 2014 10:14 PM

    I’m guessing it won’t spread to USC.

    We are a very happy city right now. My bowl will be stuffed.

  32. jayyy1985 says: Feb 4, 2014 10:20 PM

    These parades and celebrations almost always spill over into other facilities. Being that your a sports writer I’m kind of amazed that it’s the first time you recall this happening

  33. seatownballers says: Feb 4, 2014 10:23 PM

    Proud of you too 12′s.

  34. jimmywho14 says: Feb 4, 2014 10:24 PM

    Phillies 2008. They held it at Citizen Bank Park and Lincoln Financial Field

  35. bert1913 says: Feb 4, 2014 10:26 PM

    this is the only way that the mariners could fill safeco field

  36. bostroff says: Feb 4, 2014 10:29 PM

    The Phillies celebration spread to the Linc after they won the World Series in 2008.

  37. browns627 says: Feb 4, 2014 10:36 PM

    finally the fans that deserve a winner, get one! congrats #12

  38. toneman1234 says: Feb 4, 2014 10:51 PM

    OK genius. How about recalling the time that a championship celebration spilled over into a whole CITY. The regular Superdome crowd of 70,000-plus was nothing compared to the hundreds of thousands who lined the streets in New Orleans when the Saints won it all. Seattle fans will have absolutely nothing on that Lombardi-gras celebration. Truly weak in comparison.

  39. randomcommenter says: Feb 4, 2014 10:59 PM

    is safeco also designed to artificially enhance crowd noise?

  40. bartpkelly says: Feb 4, 2014 11:18 PM

    We love our Seahawks, and with the Sinics being taken away, we Clink (cling) to what we got. We have been championship hungry for far too long. Wonder what will happen if Detroit or Cleveland get a city championship soon.

  41. partmachine says: Feb 4, 2014 11:18 PM

    Good for Seattle, enjoy your day.

    Then act like you’ve been there before, because now you finally have.

  42. keepingitrealdumb says: Feb 4, 2014 11:45 PM

    is this the first championship for SEA in any sport since the Sonics did it in 78 or 79?

  43. i10east says: Feb 4, 2014 11:45 PM

    I guess if Safeco Field overflows, they could go to that tenant-less (for all intents and purposes) dinosaur cave, the Key Arena.

  44. rgledz says: Feb 5, 2014 12:09 AM

    “Woooohoooo!! We’ve been Seahawks fans since way back in 2013!! We love our team when they win……I mean we love our team.”

  45. shortfatbald1 says: Feb 5, 2014 12:10 AM

    Can’t wait to see all the players having their day in the sun.

    GO HAWKS!!!

    Loud and proud 12th man fan.

  46. bmceh says: Feb 5, 2014 12:15 AM

    Early forecasts called for 300k fans to line the parade route & fill the two stadiums, though the Seattle Police Dept reportedly increased that estimate to 500k.

  47. andrewluck12 says: Feb 5, 2014 12:28 AM

    its really annoying how seahawk fans seem to be the only ”12th man”. i mean the ”12th man” is literally in the colts ring of honor… seattle does have some great passionate fans, but don’t most nfl teams?

  48. dannymac17 says: Feb 5, 2014 12:36 AM

    the Lakers do it all the time with The Coliseum

  49. louiedogg16 says: Feb 5, 2014 1:15 AM

    It’s crazy here. There will probably be more fans at Safeco tomorrow, than the Mariners will bring in for any game all season. Gotta love dem Hawks

  50. syrinx35 says: Feb 5, 2014 1:22 AM

    Tickets at Century Link were selling for over $100 online, for a free event. And they’re expecting 500,000 people for the parade, in a city whose official population is 635,000.

    It’s gonna be crazy, can’t wait to see it!

  51. tatum064 says: Feb 5, 2014 1:48 AM

    Love it. Our rivals now represent west coast.

  52. hailvictory says: Feb 5, 2014 3:22 AM

    I assume all the Seahawks haters will be apologizing for their ignorance on this site?

  53. gobills716 says: Feb 5, 2014 4:03 AM

    WOW SO A MAXIMUM OF 120,000 PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SHOW UP FOR THE VICTORY CELEBRATION? 12th MAN BABY!!! What did Chicago have for the 4th most popular team in the city? 2 MILLION!!! The Blackhawks victory celebration in June would have filled every NHL arena four times over. How often do victory celebrations even take place inside stadiums where fans need tickets to attend? Doesn’t Seattle have a large public park or public square, where any fan could attend? Paul Allen just wants to get the fans inside the stadium so he can make more money off concessions and merchandise sales during the “celebration”.

  54. scrap7681 says: Feb 5, 2014 5:43 AM

    When the Phillies won in 2008 they also used both Lincoln Financial Field & Citizens Bank Park.

  55. tbk201 says: Feb 5, 2014 7:03 AM

    Largest group of people in that stadium sine 2001

  56. essope says: Feb 5, 2014 7:22 AM

    I know the Phillies parade was in both Citizens Bank Park as well as the Linc and surrounding areas so I doubt it’s the first time this has happened.

  57. nickfolds says: Feb 5, 2014 8:29 AM

    False. Back in ’08 during the Phillies parade Lincoln Financial Field was filled with fans.

  58. nwhawkhater says: Feb 5, 2014 8:45 AM

    Safeco field? Is that the same place that had all the fans when the mariners were winning 116 game? Where if you buy 1 ticket and get 3 free stafium!And the Seahawks couldn’t give away enough tickets to fill their stadium! I live locally and this is the biggest fair weather fan base in all of sports!!!

  59. therealtruth210 says: Feb 5, 2014 8:49 AM

    Actually the 2008 phillies went through Eagles stadium before going into Citizen’s Bank Ballpark

  60. therealtruth210 says: Feb 5, 2014 8:50 AM

    let’s see how loyal Seattle fans are when it comes to supporting the Mariners, bunch of front running fruads in that town.

  61. classyjacklambert says: Feb 5, 2014 9:05 AM

    Seahawks fans: spreading like herpes now that they’ve finally won something…

  62. samapoc says: Feb 5, 2014 9:13 AM

    the New Orleans celebration encompassed the entire city.

  63. dangeruss3 says: Feb 5, 2014 9:32 AM

    Funny how all the philly fans are talking about the phillies championship on a football forum and not the eagles.

    The term “12th man” has ben around for centuries.
    Stop acting like you invented something with that piped in crowd noise.
    The Colts had “12th Man” in their ring of honor long before you bandwagon geeks started showing up.
    Get over yourself. Have your parade and move on with your pathetic life.

    Priceless comment:

    Let’s see, the Seattle SuperSonics let town because the arena with empty and the owner couldn’t get public funding to construct a new arena in the Seattle.

    Seattle Mariners, most nights you’ll find more visiting team fans than Mariner fans in attendance. The other nights SAFECO field 3/4 empty.

    Hockey Team, nope
    Relevant College teams, not really

    Bangwagon Seahawk fans calming to be the “BEST fan base in the U.S.” MANY.. How about supporting the other teams in town.

    swaggyy says: Feb 4, 2014 8:57 PM

  66. beastmode5150 says: Feb 5, 2014 10:19 AM

    I am here! 7 am and people tailgating and drinking. They estimate 700k people. This is so awesome.

  67. beastmode5150 says: Feb 5, 2014 10:23 AM

    Hey haters, those that think Seattle is a fishing village, make sure you watch NFL network or ESPN to see 700k fans…

  68. trollhammer20 says: Feb 5, 2014 10:27 AM

    You actually managed to put “Safeco Field” and “championship celebration” in the same sentence. Thus accomplishing in ten seconds what the Mariners have been unable to do in their entire existence.

  69. schmitty2 says: Feb 5, 2014 10:44 AM

    The 3 times Safeco Field will have over 25k attendance in 2014, in order…

    1. Seahawks Super Bowl celebration
    2. Mariners “Salute to the Seahawks” night
    3. Robinson Cano bobblehead night.

    Now why would anyone shell out $$ to go to a different stadium than where the celebration is being held?

    Put down the joints and take two steps back…

    Hey, did the Phillies celebration spill into the Linc? I havent seen any comments about that on here…

  74. weepingjebus says: Feb 5, 2014 11:24 AM

    Swung by Manning’s house, there was just a single guy out front, playing Taps on a trumpet. When I asked him why he was doing that to Manning, the guy went, “Peyton Manning lives here?!”, spat on the ground, and ran off.

  75. thetruth8888 says: Feb 5, 2014 11:29 AM

    Ravens fans set the standard for championship celebrations last year. Let’s see if the 12th man can match the hundreds of thousands of people who flooded Baltimore a year ago.

    They’ve waited a long time to celebrate like this. Kudos to them for sticking with their team! Enjoy!

    I think it’s funny the same posters here put down Seahawks fans for their claims of “loudest in NFL” are now beating their chest to claim that their “celebratory parades” will be bigger than Seattle’s.

  79. 7mantel says: Feb 5, 2014 12:15 PM

    Don’t count how many show up ,count how many get the bracelets for rioting ! After watching the news Seattle PD will have their hands full !

  80. seaeagle707 says: Feb 6, 2014 2:48 PM

    No one is arguing the numbers in Seattle, against those in Philadelphia. BUT, what is the total population of the Philly metro area (including South Jersey)? In the millions is my guess. How many of those in NOLA, were out-of-state tourists who weren’t there specifically to celebrate the Saints’ victory?

    Yet I have no problems with all of you citing the numbers for your teams’ celebrations. But please consider that the population in metro Sea-Tac, is only around a million. We’re actually more like Green Bay, in population, than we are like Philly, or SF.
