So where are we meeting and at what time? I am flying in from Virginia and have never been to Toyota Stadium for a match but don't want to miss the pre-game festivities.

People are staying all over the place, some up near the park, some in the city. No set spot unfortunately.

Looking forward to meeting some of you guys, I live in Frisco and will be attending. Our Texas Seahawker group will be watching the Seahawks game at Fox and Hound Dallas just north of Addison. Then we are heading up to watch the game. Anyone wanting to join us to watch the Seahawks game are more than welcome.

Monkey Mail sent to all purchasers....

Hello Brougham Faithful!

Thank you for purchasing your Dallas Away Playoff Ticket(s) to stand with the Emerald City Supporters. We are so pleased you have decided to join us on short notice to support the boys.


Tickets:
Your tickets were sent via email after purchasing. Print your tickets now! If you have any issues with your ticket, please contact FC Dallas or visit the Will Call window.


Parking:

Parking for visiting supporters can be found in the RED PARKING LOT. (see map) Parking is free.


Pre-Func:
The Londoner
5454 W Main Street #123
Frisco Texas 75033
(214)618-5025
http://www.thelondonerpub.com (see map)

Gametime (Important Information):
Emerald City Supporters is a supporters group. That's important to remember. Our reason for being at the match is to spur our boys on toward victory; everything else is secondary.

• Our section is always treated as General Admission, we do not enforce seat assignments. Tifo, capos, the drum, and security will be in the front few rows. Everyone is invited to stand where they feel most comfortable.

• Keep your scarf tied AT ALL TIMES, inside and outside of the stadium. There have been a rash of recent scarf snatchings at Dallas matches.

• Participation is encouraged. We'll have song cards so you can sing, chant, and go mental. Don't worry if you don't know all the words, just follow along the best you can and your support will be felt!

• There may be times where you can't see as well as you might like due to flags and tifo. We like to wave flags. Even during the run of play sometimes. We feel like it's an important part of showing the boys our support, and they are going to need every ounce of strength. If a flag is in your way, and you don't like it - please feel free to change seats. That's part of why we do GA, so you're not stuck in an uncomfortable spot.

• Do not engage in any way with home fans. Security will keep them at bay; there's no need to engage in any wordplay, taunting, threats, etc. If you have an issue, notify ECS security or stadium staff.

• We understand that for many this may be a vacation in which you meet up with friends and family in the area, and that's great! They are more than welcome to stand with us, as long as they do not display the colors and gear of the home team. Our section is the away section, and stadium security may mistake your friend or family member for an instigator, and no one wants that.

FRIENDS OR FAMILY IN OTHER MLS TEAM GEAR OR COLORS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND WITH US. The upper half of Section 119 at Toyota Stadium is designated for fans and supporters of Seattle Sounders FC. This match has big implications, and it is very, very important to those who have traveled to be here. Passions will be running high. If you or someone in your group is wearing colors of another MLS team, they will be asked to remove those items. If they refuse, we will try to have your group reseated. If stadium staff cannot accommodate a reseating, then your group will be asked to leave.

AGAIN, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO REMAIN IN OUR SECTION, AND WE DON’T CARE HOW IT WORKS IN OTHER AMERICAN SPORTS. WE NEGOTIATED THIS GROUP RATE, WE ORGANIZED THIS TRIP, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE TO ANYONE FOR ANY REASON. -yes, we’re pretty serious about this.


Postgame:
The MLS established procedure for those holding away supporter tickets is to remain in our section for up to 20 minutes while the home fans are cleared from the concourses. When the match ends, we ask that you scoot to the interior of our section as to avoid any contact with home fans. We remain until stadium security gives us the instruction to leave, and then we all leave together. If you choose not to stay with the group, you assume the risks of your own security.


Eternal Blue Forever Green,
ECS Travel Monkey

Any idea if we can join upper 119 even if we have tickets to lower 119 or another section? I know the security at this park is strange.

Not an ECS member, but I just booked travel to Dallas for tomorrow morning. Any chance a ticket might be available for the game?
