Monkey Edit:

Hello Away Traveler,

Thank you for purchasing your RSL AWAY Ticket(s) through the Emerald City Supporters. Here is everything you need to know to support to your fullest:

TICKETS: Your RSL AWAY tickets for Saturday, August 22, 2015 at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah (9256 South State Street Sandy, UT 84070) are attached to this email. Print your ticket(s), bring them with you, and keep them on your person for the entirety of the match. Rio Tinto Stadium will not accept reading this ticket from your mobile phone so go find a Kinko’s. PRINT YOUR TICKETS AND BRING THEM WITH YOU, you will not receive paper tickets like you may have in previous years.

RSL PRE-FUNC:
3:00-5:00 pm:
Sandy Station (formerly Lumpy’s South)
8925 S Harrison St
Salt Lake City, UT 84070

NO HOST TAILGATE:
5:00 pm- 6:30 pm: Gates do not open at the Visiting Supporters Parking lot
North Lot #3 (Ardell Brown) until 5:00 pm. See the attached map. North Lot #3 is located off Stadium Road. Access to the North Lot #3 is from 9400 South stadium entrance, continue on Stadium Road and turn left just before State Street (opposite Team Store). After entering the Parking Area, please turn left immediately. Parking costs $10.00 CASH ONLY.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION:
UTA TRAX light rail service is available to Rio Tinto Stadium. SANDY EXPO is the nearest station to Rio Tinto Stadium and is located 2 blocks East of Rio Tinto Stadium along 9400 South. For a complete TRAX Schedule and Station map, please visit http://www.rideuta.com.

TIFO CHECK IN & ENTERING STADIUM:
6:30 pm: We will all group together at the Visiting Supporters Parking lot North Lot #3 (Ardell Brown) and be escorted by stadium security to pass through security gates together and enter the stadium. Tifo and all bags, purses etc. will be checked at this time. You may not bring any food or drinks into the stadium, not even water. You many bring an empty water bottle to fill at drinking stations in stadium. We enter as a group so you need to be at this location no later than 6:30 pm. It is estimated between grouping at 6:30 and entering stadium near 7:00 p.m. as we go through bag checks etc. Our sections are Section 233/234, 2nd Level. All seats are to be treated as GA.

GAMETIME (IMPORTANT INFORMATION):
8:00 p.m. Kickoff

Emerald City Supporters is a supporters group. That's important to remember. Our reason for being at the match is to spur our boys to victory; everything else is secondary.

• Our section will be treated as General Admission, we do not enforce seat assignments. Tifo and capos will be in the front few rows. Everyone else is invited to stand where they feel most comfortable.
• Participation is encouraged. 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. If a flag is in your way, and you don’t like it- please feel free to stand in an alternate location within our section.
• Don't drink so much that you get sloppy and give anything less than your best. YOUR BEST IS EXPECTED. You should work to exceed that.
• Do not engage in any way with home fans. There's no need to engage in any wordplay, taunting, threats, etc. If you have an issue, notify ECS travel monkeys on the ground or stadium staff.
• You should expect that you will be under surveillance at
Rio Tinto and conduct yourselves accordingly. BEHAVE AS THOUGH YOU ARE BEING WATCHED, BECAUSE YOU ARE.

FRIENDS OR FAMILY IN OTHER MLS TEAM GEAR OR COLORS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND WITH US. Section 233/234, 2nd Level at Rio Tinto is designated for fans and supporters of Seattle Sounders FC. 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:
Standard procedure for all MLS matches is to hold the visiting supporters in the section for up to 15-30 minutes in order to give the home fans time to clear the concourse. We will then be escorted by stadium security out of our section and will proceed back to Visiting Supporters parking lot. There is no tailgating allowed postgame.

Itinerary Recap:
As always, make SURE you check with the travel monkey on the ground for the latest schedule/details.
