We're going a little old school here and are putting up the old flight & hotel matrix. People can list their travel info and hopefully maybe coordinate with fellow supporters for ride shares or splitting the cost of a hotel room. Check it out. The first link will take you to the form to enter your travel information. And the second link will take you to the spreadsheet to review what other have submitted.

I happen to have to drive a car from Massachusetts to Texas in September... Seems as good as any a reason to do USOC Philly --> NYRB --> FCD.

I'm most likely in for this trip. Looking at catching a red eye flight Monday night, and leaving the day after the match in the morning. If anyone is planning on similar flight times, I'm willing to split room/rental car with them.

I would love to take the train in from NYC. I'm hoping there is an organized trip from Center City? The stadium is pretty remote.

I'll be taking down a flight the day of and flying back really early the next day...going straight to work the next morning. Would anyone be up to help me out on rides to/from the airport or have some input on transit?

We already have tickets and such for the NYRB match, gonna change flights and such to make this.

Match is at 7:30 ET. I haven't travelled away to Philly before. How long does it take to get to their stadium from the city? I'm guessing I should also plan on having to arrive 2h before kick? Just want to be clear on what flight arrival times I should consider.

I think we're going to create a Google Doc soon that will show what flights people are on and stuff. That way we can party together all the way to Philly.

We're in. Flying in just a few hours before the match, gonna grab a hotel room near the airport for just that night, then somewhere closer to the city for a couple days before heading up to NY.

I am in (was there ever a doubt?).

Red eye the 15th, then afternoon flight out the next day. Will try to see a bit of Philly while there since I have never been.

HOLD TIGHT EVERYBODY. They're considering moving the date to the 17th. Keep your flights flexible. I will post what I know when I know it.

Most airlines offer a 24 hour cancellation window with no fee. That might come in handy.

Hopefully they keep it to the 16th; I'll save almost 10k of miles if they keep it the same.
