What time will the bus leave from The Irish Bank? Trying to plan for pre-pre-funk! :lol: I figure it would leave around 4-4:30 since it's an hour+ bus ride and MLS policy to have supporters at the stadium two hours before kickoff. Is that about right??

The upcoming San Jose match will be my first away match. :D I'm staying with friends in Morgan Hill. Are there any away supporters staying in the south San Jose or Morgan Hill area interested in car pooling to the match?

Looking forward to the game and cheering the boys on next Saturday!

I got my tix but one more person may come. If he just buys a ticket anywhere in the stadium, will they let him in our section? Or are they stricter at Avaya?

Do you know what section we will be in? A few friends who live in the area are thinking about picking up some regular tickets last minute and were curious. :)

No guarantees. In the past they have been pretty lax, letting the group come and go without checking section tickets, but that could always change.

It is 2 days until the game at SJ Earthquakes. I still have not received an e-mail with my tickets for the game. When will I receive the e-mail?

If an SSFC fan has a ticket from another area and want to join ECS in section 134 it won't be an issue as long as there is room and as long as they are not wearing any other MLS team colors.

Havnt posted in the forums in quite a while...

The SJ trip is one of my favorites I've done in the past (have been down there 3 times, I think, maybe four...)

Anyway, this time I'm bringing both the kids, bringing the wife, and bringing the ruckus.

LET'S FUCKING BRING IT FOR THIS MATCH !!!! #all3pts

ECS MONKEY MAIL | SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES AWAY | SEPTEMBER 10, 2016

Hello San Jose Away Traveler!!!

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

TICKETS: Your SJE AWAY tickets for Saturday, September 10, 2016 at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, CA (1123 Coleman Ave, San Jose, CA 95110) 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. Avaya Stadium will accept reading this ticket from your mobile phone. But you are at the mercy of technology working. Recommended to PRINT YOUR TICKETS AND BRING THEM WITH YOU, you will not receive paper tickets from ECS.

SJE Away PRE-FUNC:

In San Jose
Nothing formally planned. There’s talk of people getting together at Jack’s Bar and Lounge as we did last year.

In San Francisco
Irish Bank
10 Mark Lane San Francisco, CA 94108 415.788.7152
3-5pm
5pm – Bus will leave. Close your tab early!

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: Avaya Stadium (1123 Coleman Ave, San Jose, CA 95110)

Caltrain
Take the Caltrain to the Santa Clara station.
Transfer to the VTA #10 Free Airport Flyer to arrive at Avaya Stadium.

BART
Take BART to the Millbrae Transit Station and transfer to Caltrain heading southbound towards San Jose.
Depart at the Santa Clara station and take the VTA #10 Free Airport Flyer to arrive at Avaya Stadium.

TIFO CHECK IN & ENTERING STADIUM:
6:30 pm: We will all group together at the Visiting Supporters Parking lot (WEST Silver overflow/VTA Lot/Employee Lot) (see parking mapattached) and be escorted by stadium security to pass through security gates together and enter the stadium. Tifo and all bags, purses etc. will be checked at this time. You may not bring any food or drinks into the stadium other than one sealed bottle of water per person. We enter security as a group with Tifo at the front, so you need to be at this location no later than 6:15 pm. It is estimated between grouping at 6:15 and entering stadium near 6:30 p.m. as we go through bag checks etc. We are Section 134. All seats are to be treated as GA.

GAMETIME (IMPORTANT INFORMATION):
7:30 p.m. Kickoff

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. Keep your alcohol consumption in check before, during and after the match.

• Our section will be treated as General Admission; we do not enforce seat assignments. Tifo and capos will be in the front few rows. Everyone else is invited to stand where they feel most comfortable.
• Participation is encouraged. Don’t worry if you don’t know all the words, just follow along the best you can and your support will be felt! And, we’ll have song cards to hand out. Feel free to ask for some.
• 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. Even during the run of play sometimes. We feel like it’s an important part of showing the boys our suppo rt. If a flag is in your way, and you don’t like it- please feel free to stand in an alternate location within our section.

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. There's no need to engage in any wordplay, taunting, threats, etc. If you have an issue, notify ECS travel monkeys on the ground or stadium staff.
• You should expect that you will be under surveillance at Avaya Stadium and conduct yourselves accordingly. BEHAVE AS THOUGH YOU ARE BEING WATCHED, BECAUSE YOU ARE.

FRIENDS OR FAMILY IN OTHER MLS TEAM GEAR OR COLORS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND WITH US. Section 134 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 serious about this.

POSTGAME:
Standard procedure for all MLS matches is to hold the visiting supporters in the section for up to 15-30 minutes in order to give the home fans time to clear the concourse. We will then be escorted by stadium security out of our section and will proceed back to Visiting Supporters parking lot. There is no tailgating allowed postgame.

Itinerary Recap:
As always, make SURE you check with the travel monkey on the ground for the latest schedule/details.
3:00 pm-5:00 pm - Prefunc at Irish Bank in San Fran (4pm – 6pm Jack’s in San Jose)
4:45 pm - Begin to board bus (be mindful of closing your tab early enough to be boarding AT 4:45)
