RENTON, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks and Boeing announced today eight local organizations to receive 2021 Seahawks home game tickets as part of the Legion of Youth Powered by Boeing (LOY) program.
During each of the Seahawks' eight regular season games, 25 students will each receive four (4) game tickets, breakfast with a special visit from a Seahawks Legend, concession vouchers, and a Legion of Youth Powered by Boeing sweatshirt. New in 2021, each student will also receive a pair of new shoes from Nike as well as a Legion of Youth Powered by Boeing backpack and athletic socks.
