General ECS talk.

Unread postby flyingbeefcake » Tue Aug 23, 2016 11:40:48 pm

According to the latest and greatest ECS Newsletter, there is a European Sounders Federation gathering in Amsterdam on September 17th to watch the Sounders v. Whitecaps @10pm. Can anyone provide me with the details of this please? I recently moved to Munich for work and I would like to know where in Amsterdam this will be happening. I do not have Facebook and cannot access the information page. Anyone's help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

@SeattleCalcio,

I cannot see the details from the links since I don't have Facebook. Please provide the location of the viewing party please. Thank you.

From what I have seen, the location in Amsterdam hasn't been decided yet. I've asked for clarification. Please stay tuned.

Woot! Let me know if I can help; I live in The Hague, not too far away. Will definitely find a way to make it to the meetup in any case.

2 weeks away, no word on venue yet. I don't do facebook, but I'll reiterate my offer of help - I speak Dutch and live here.

Just a heads-up, Eurosport NL is hit-or-miss with MLS matches on Saturdays. While the early Sunday matches are usually broadcast here, sometimes they show re-runs/highlights of other sports (this time of year, cycling) in lieu of live MLS matches. They haven't published the evening schedule yet for 17 September, but I'll check again after the weekend. Point is, it could actually happen that there's actually no legit broadcast available here for a bar to show....

As feared, Eurosport is NOT carrying the Sounders/Whitecaps match live next Saturday. (Posted schedule is at http://tv.eurosport.nl/tvschedule.shtml)

Unfortunately, that probably means that it's going to be harder to find a meetup venue that can show the match.

The best case is probably finding a place with wifi that won't mind if someone with a laptop, a VPN, an MLS Live subscription, and an HDMI cable plugs into (one of) their TV(s).
