I've decided to go at the last minute. Will be driving in from Madison, WI area. Can I buy a ticket at walkup that will let me sit with you folks? Any recommendations?

Will call is at the north side of the field. Not too far from the visitor lot. If you are coming to the tailgate, one of us will be able to help too.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and cheering our boys on.

Just wanted to give a brief shoutout to the away crew of this game. As we all know the game itself was atrocious but the support in the stands was top notch. I have been to my fair share of away games and haven't had any as vocal and responsive as the men and women there on Saturday night. I've mentioned this on twitter and also shouted it swearily after the final whistle. Everyone there got noticeably louder after we went down in the 92nd freaking minute, whether it was out of anger, frustration or sheer obstinance the volume level just kept rising . They screamed and yelled with defiance and ignored the braying Chicagoan assclowns surrounding us. Joel and Jerry kept urging us all on with Duwamish Sown till the final whistle when we immediately broke out with We Love You Sounders It was freaking beautiful. That's a sign that ECS members get it.
Couldn't be prouder to have stood and sung with the crew supporting Seattle that night.
Losing sucks, but everyone in our section can hold their heads high and know that they did their utmost to urge our depleted boys to victory.

I am still hoarse! I couldn't have said this any better! Thanks to Eileen, Joel, Jerry and everyone for working so hard on this.

You deserve a lot of credit also, Jake. Chicago's a tough away section to lead without someone halfway up helping keep everyone going. Certainly much easier leading from the front when I see you going bonkers up there. At one point, holding on to the railing and waving the flag you looked like a crazy pirate :P

My Wife and I had so much fun - the outcome sucked but we didn't stop, not even little teenagers throwing fries at us could get us down!! I am also proud to have been able to show the players families that the team is loved outside of Seattle and that regardless of the outcome we don't get down on our team as a supporter our first job is to support win or lose. Our second job is to piss off the fans from the other team - No one likes us, no one likes us, no one likes us. WE DON'T CARE WE ARE SOUNDERS MIGHTY SOUNDERS WE ARE SOUNDERS FROM BROUGHAM END!!!

Just a note when there are issues with home fans at away matches - notify ECS Security or the ECS Travel Monkey and they will manage with the home security crew; that happened at this match (french fry girl got a talking to from mama among others) so good work crew!

Yep at first when it was just a fry or 2 we didn't really care but then it started getting worse and Eileen quickly stepped in and put an end to that - she was up to the top getting security before anyone realized it, she was totally awesome!! One thing that I would really question is the Fire ticket people putting groups of kids soccer teams right next to the traveling fans that just isn't smart the shocked faces of some of the teens the first time "we don't hear a fucking thing" was screamed was priceless!!

It's not just Chicago, many clubs do that because we're often in the cheap/undesirable seats which they try to sell groups next to. We bring it up every year on our planning calls with the clubs, but some don't get it. Denver has gotten better
