What section are the tickets in? I missed the "Match Only" allotment and the bus package doesn't work for me this time. I'd like to get tickets close by if possible.

I have a bus/match combo. I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it, face value for it. Worse case I'll just part with it.

Has the logistics email already gone out? I purchased late last night and want to be sure I didn't miss out on any details.

Can't wait! This will be my first away trip travelling with the crew.

Anyone willing to give me a ride from the Bus location back to Downtown/ Central District?

With the late arrival getting back Metro won't be an option.

Monkey mail sent! If you bought and haven't received it, check your junk/spam etc folders! You NEED to print and bring your match ticket!!!!
ECS MONKEY MAIL | VANCOUVER AWAY | AUGUST 5 2015

Hello Away Traveler,

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

Tickets:
Your VANCOUVER AWAY tickets for Wednesday, August 5th, 2015 at BC Place in Vancouver, BC 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. BC Place may not accept reading this ticket from your mobile phone, so go find a Kinko’s.

Bus Riders:
PRINT YOUR TICKETS AND BRING THEM WITH YOU. Bus riders will not receive paper tickets like they have in previous years.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PICKUP LOCATION!!!
Be at the Northgate Park & Ride (address: 10200 1st Ave. NE) near NE 103rd St. & 1st Ave NO LATER than 12:00. The buses will leave promptly at 12:30 and they WILL leave without you. We suggest carpooling and arriving early, as the Park and Ride may be busy on a working day when many commuters use it.
YOU MUST BRING YOUR PASSPORT/PASSPORT CARD/ENHANCED DL. If you are for any reason are denied entry at the border, you WILL be left behind.
The buses will NOT be making a food stop. You might get hungry. Bring food to eat. Bring drinks too. NO GLASS ALLOWED. We will make a stop at Custer Rest Area for restrooms and to store booze under the bus. No booze is allowed on buses after the rest stop.
Match-Only Purchasers:
PRINT YOUR TICKETS AND BRING THEM WITH YOU.

Vancouver pre-func:
We do not have a designated pre-func location in Vancouver for our match-only purchasers, however note that many nearby bars are Whitecaps-supporter-only and will refuse access to opposing fans.

Parking:
There is no visiting supporters designated parking. You will not be able to park in the same lot as the buses. Other lots have been included on the attached map for your convenience.

Stadium Arrival (Bus Riders & Match-Only Purchasers):
Buses are scheduled to arrive at BC Place at 17:00 and will be unloading at ImPark Lot #1188. AT NO TIME IS ANYONE PERMITTED TO LEAVE THE BUS/TICKET/ENTRANCE AREA. We don't want anyone getting separated from the group and winding up in trouble.

Per MLS rules, all away fans must enter as a group – this means if you drove yourself you will need to meet the buses to enter as a group. LEAVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME TO PARK AND MEET THE BUS.
MATCH-ONLY PURCHASERS NEED TO MEET THE BUSES BETWEEN 17:00 AND 17:15.
We are entering at Gate C after a short security briefing.
Entering the Stadium:
ECS Security and Tifo crew will go in first.

After they enter, we will all pass through security together and enter the stadium. Our section is Section 219/221. All seats are to be treated as GA. Other Sounders groups will be in adjoining sections but we ask that you stay in 219/221.

FRIENDS OR FAMILY IN OTHER MLS TEAM GEAR OR COLORS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND WITH US. Section 219/221 at BC Place 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.

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 to victory; everything else is secondary.

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

• 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. 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.

• You should expect that you will be under surveillance at all times while at BC Place and conduct yourselves accordingly. BEHAVE AS THOUGH YOU ARE BEING WATCHED, BECAUSE YOU ARE.


Postgame:
Standard procedure for all MLS matches is to hold the visiting supporters in the section for up to 30 minutes in order to give the home fans time to clear the concourse. We will then be escorted by stadium security and local police out of our section and will proceed back to Impark Lot 1188.

Get back on the bus (the same bus you rode up in, please) and we'll head home. ETA in Seattle is … LATE. Even travel monkeys have to respect the time space continuum.

Up the Sounders! Up the ECS!

Hopefully someone will be going your way but if no other options, I could run you there.

Thank you, ECS, for welcoming this road trip noob with a mighty fine time. This morning I'm resting my voice and hearing snippets from The Missing Songbook in my head. I had a blast.
