March at 90min - aka 11:30 on Saturday?!?

Everything match specific.

FO does it again. Just got my 'Scarves up Countdown' email and it states the march is at 11:30, not 12noon for a 1pm kick.

They always set the time for the MTTM a half hour earlier than we say. It's so the regular fans don't miss it. More people showing up early is a good thing.

WE dictate when the march actually leaves, no matter what the FO says.

Sadly for the FO, they don't own or run the March.

Ignore me - I haven't fully caffeinated, seems to create jumpiness, FO is standard in their 90-105min time on the Countdown email.

Yeah, they want people to show up in time for their events at Occidental square.

the funny thing is now if you do the march you miss out on the match pass food deals since instead of being up to kick off they cut it off now 30 minutes before.

You also miss on the early arrival points* which was doable before they added the fun and joy of wanding.

*I know most of you don't care about he MP point, but some (myself included) do. I put my points to good use.
