Where is the best place to park? We are driving down and planning to meet up at Sandy Station beforehand for pre-funk! Very excited to visit RSL this year, another away team crossed off the list! Our bucket list includes seeing the Sounders play at least once at every away stadium :-)

We will be escorted, via foot, from Sandy Station to the Stadium by Sandy PD and Rio Tinto staff. March to the Match!!

Sandy Station graciously allows us to park at their club for free. The doors open at 10am. I will be there for breakfast! If you're looking for something to do Friday night, I would not recommend here after 9pm though, as it turns into a ...."club"..... we were there a few years ago watching NCAA tournament. about 5 minutes left in the last game. at 9pm the TV's switched to music videos, lights went out, un-un-un-un started playing, and we were told to leave because we had t-shirts and one guy had a ball-cap on. We had been sitting watching various basketball games since noon. TV off when it was a crazy close finish... we bolted to our hotel across the parking lot to finish the game off.

I think we need to request police dept bus rides for every away match now. Mexico City made it look so fun.

I'm pretty sure not available thru ECS anymore, but twice in the past I've called RSL ticket office and let them know I wanted ticket in away support section and wasn't a problem at all.

Ah sorry didn't see your email in time

Give them a call, 801-727-2700. Quick and easy and he got them sent to my email



So wife and I in. Doubletree downtown was really cheap so booked that. Actually a lot of decent hotels downtown for <$100 and cheaper than staying in burbs closer to Sandy :beer:

Visiting supporters call will be in a few days. We're on RSL's nice list, so they generally allow normal exemptions. They just don't like bullhorns. Will update after call. Tickets and matchday plan will be sent out after the call, I am hoping to have all final plans by Thursday to do such.

Just some info from what we have christened the #SSHaedoValdez. We're cutting out from Seattle ~8AM on Friday AM for #ReelSandy. As of right now myself (Twitters): http://www.twitter.com/AdamCSmith and http://www.twitter.com/BrettOrlob are in this ship.

I love traveling and making sure other road warriors have people to call or reach out to once we've all started our trip. If you don't have Twitter you can call or text me 24/7 while we're in "enemy territory" at 2535088236. I look forward to seeing all you Faithful before the match and making that march! I'm trying to dig out my ECS flag from the 2015 memberships last year so if someone is bringing single poles to fly it form that'd be awesome.

The address for Sandy Station (where we meet up and march from) is: 8925 Harrison St, Sandy, UT 84070 in case anyone is missing it.

I might have a spare ticket but won't know for sure until a 3rd hard core is freed up from work or has to miss the trip at the last minute. If you are interested in this ticket find me on Twitter, whoever is first gets it if it comes free.

Let's, one more time, make Rio Tinto turn their excellent sound system up to try to drown us out and all play air guitar when they play "Master of Puppets" at half time as we hydrate!

Love ya all!
:D

Planning on getting in somewhat late but not late enough for beers if anyone wants to meet up for drinks Friday night? Dipping out of work early so hoping to get in around 10:30 and heading straight to Beerhive or something if anyone cares to join. Seem to recall bars in UT close 1:30a so plenty of time left
