The Sounders, who also won the award in 2010 after a debut season that saw them smash MLS attendance records, are up against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the San Francisco 49ers and the Washington Nationals.
Here's a little more on the award, from the press release:

Sports teams in the major and minor leagues and U.S. national teams, in leagues whose central offices are located in North America, were eligible.
