Monkey mail just sent... for those who didn't receive it:

Hello Away Traveler,

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

Tickets:
Your TORONTO FC AWAY tickets for Saturday, July 2, 2016 at BMO Field in Toronto, ON 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. BMO Field will NOT accept reading this ticket from your mobile phone, so go find a Kinko’s.


Pre-function:
A return to where we went in 2010, 2011, and 2013, The Fox and Fiddle in Yorkville! They open at 7am but we recommend getting there closer to 3pm so you’re still match-fit!

The Fox and Fiddle
280 Bloor St West
Toronto, ON
http://www.bloorfox.com/

At 5:00PM, we will pay our tabs and head to catch transit. The usual streetcar we would catch is out of service for the month and replaced by a bus. We’ll walk west on Bloor to Spadina Ave and south then to Harbord St to catch the 511 replacement bus to the stadium. You’ll need a ticket, token, pass, transfer or exact cash – operators don’t carry change. Plan ahead by getting tickets or tokens or bring exact change… make sure to get one for the return trip as well!

More info on the prices here: http://www.ttc.ca/Fares_and_passes/Prices/index.jsp

Transportation from the pre-func to the Stadium:
At 5:00PM, we will pay our tabs and head to catch transit. The usual streetcar we would catch is out of service for the month and replaced by a bus. We’ll walk west on Bloor to Spadina Ave and south then to Harbord St to catch the 511 replacement bus to the stadium. You’ll need a ticket, token, pass, transfer or exact cash – operators don’t carry change. Plan ahead by getting tickets or tokens or bring exact change… make sure to get one for the return trip as well!

More info on the prices here: http://www.ttc.ca/Fares_and_passes/Prices/index.jsp

Parking:
Lots of works are underway near the stadium. You’re on your own for parking. You’ll need to meet us at gate 1B at the NE corner of the stadium at 6:00pm for entry.

Entering the Stadium:
We will all meet at the northeast corner of the stadium outside gate at 6:15pm where we will be briefed by stadium security. BMO Field security will meet us at this location and accompany us through the gates. If you plan to bring your own flag, it must be on flexible PVC and you absolutely must arrive no later than 6:00pm for inspection of the flag. Once we are all in, we will be escorted to our section. We are in Section 204, rows 34-35, and the section is treated as General Admission. The two rows in front of us are to be used as buffer rows.

BMO Field is the same as most other stadiums in terms of prohibited/allowed items. Please review their stadium details if you have any questions.

FRIENDS OR FAMILY IN OTHER MLS TEAM GEAR OR COLORS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND WITH US. Section 204 at BMO Field 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 row. Everyone else is invited to stand where they feel most comfortable.

• 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 the words, just follow along the best you can and your support will be felt!


• 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.


Postgame:
Standard procedure for all MLS matches is to hold the visiting supporters in the section for approximately 20 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 the transit station.

This is a big one, folks. Travel safe.

Didn't get tickets in time but we went to Montreal and Seattle a couple times last year. Any idea of where the pre game bar will be? We will just grab tickets near there and move to the section hoping it'll be just like Montreal last year.
