I have three tickets in the supporters section and was hoping to drive down from Minneapolis. Life is preventing me from making the drive, but I would like to sell them to Sounders supporters. $53.00 each. Anyone interested?

How much did you pay for them? They should not have been that much through us.

I bought them from Ticketmaster. I just joined this forum to let the group know about my tickets; I had no idea that I could get them here for cheaper. Now I feel like a sucker. I'll sell for something close to what I paid for them, if someone is interested.

To follow on Joel's question: which section # are your tickets in?

MONKEY NEWS:

FYI: here's the monkey info that just was just sent out along with the match tickets.

The tickets have been sent to the email address that's listed on your account in the ECS store. If you still have nothing even after checking your spam/junk folders, or you received a broken email, please let me know, and I'll resend your ticket(s).

It’s been a while since we last faced Sporting on their turf. Not that it matters much where we play them. Our all-time record against them in league competition is 7-1-2. (That lone loss was way back in 2009.)

You are part of a group of nearly 100 traveling supporters. Really? 100 traveling supporters to Kansas City? Yep! Our traveling support this time is more than double our previous best showing for a league match at Sporting Park. They will hear us.

Here’s everything you need to know for this match day:

Tickets:
Your SKC Away Ticket(s) to stand with the Emerald City Supporters for the match on Saturday, June 06, 2015 at Sporting Park in Kansas City, KS are attached to this email! Print your ticket(s), bring them with you, and keep it with you for the entirety of the match.

Parking:
Away supporter parking is in Lot I (on the grounds of the Speedway). Parking is free of charge. The parking lots will open at 4:30 PM. Please refer to [parking page on Sporting’s website](http://www.sportingkc.com/sporting-park/parking) for location and directions to Lot I.

Tailgate:
Members of the Heartland Horde (HH) are hosting a catered BBQ tailgate on behalf of ECS before the match in Lot I. Tickets for the tailgate were sold in advance as an optional add-on with the match tickets in the ECS store. If you bought a tailgate ticket please check-in with Joel from HH or me, Hooch, in Lot I for your tailgate wristband.
Tickets for the tailgate are sold-out. But all Sounders away travelers still welcome and encouraged to hang out, meet their fellow supporters, and of course sing!

Stadium Entry:
SKC is providing two buses to shuttle us from Lot I to the stadium one hour before kick-off. ECS will then enter Sporting Park through the Sprint Gate on the W/SW corner of the stadium. Please be prepared for bag checks, pat downs, and metal detectors at the gate.

Gametime Expectations:
Emerald City Supporters is a supporter 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.
  • If you bought tickets through ECS our section will be in Section 124, rows 8-17. Our section will be treated as General Admission; we do not enforce seat assignments. Tifo, capos, drum, and security will be in the front 1-2 rows. Everyone else is invited to stand where they feel most comfortable.
    • If you bought tickets directly from SKC in row 21 expect to adhere to reserved seating.
  • Participation is encouraged. We'll have song cards so you can sing, chant, and go mental right along with us. Don't worry if you don't know all of 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.
  • Speaking of flags: Sporting Park is great in that they allow flags anywhere in the stadium. BUT they do not permit flags being waved during the run of play. Not even in the visiting supporters section. That’s pretty weak. So plan to wave your flags pre- and post-match, half-time, and in celebration of all the Sounders’ goals that will be scored. If you’re bringing a flag please note that hollow PVC poles are permitted, and flags may not contain offensive, political, etc. content.
  • Friends or family in other non-Sounders MLS team gear or colors will not be allowed to stand with us. 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 the stadium staff cannot accommodate a reseating, then your group will be asked to leave.
  • Please, 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, Travel Monkey, or stadium staff.

Postgame:
We will held in the section for about 20 minutes. Security will then escort the group back out through the Sprint Gate where the same buses will be waiting to shuttle us back to Lot I. If you choose not to stay with the group, you assume the risks of your own security.

Itinerary Recap:
As always, make SURE you check with the travel monkey on the ground for the latest schedule/details.
10:30 AM Is it too early for lunch at Joe’s KC?
4:30 PM Parking lots open; HH tailgate starts in Lot I
6:30 PM Stadium security briefing & tifo review
6:45 PM Shuttle to the stadium
7:00 PM Stadium entry

Eternal Blue Forever Green,
ECS Travel Monkey

Anyone planning on driving from the Denver area tomorrow morning? I'd love to carpool.

Absolutely this! Thank you Joel, and all of the Heartland Horde. Thank you to Bourbon Squad for the very excellent tifo. And especially thank you to all who traveled near & far, and supported for 90 mins non-stop.
