Monkey Mail sent in the wee hours last night. Check your email, check your spam folder. Still can't find it send an email to travel@weareecs.com
Don't forget to PRINT YOUR TICKETS and BRING YOUR PASSPORT/PASSPORTCARD OR EDL! Monkey mail is below for reference.

ECS MONKEY MAIL | VANCOUVER AWAY | OCTOBER 2, 2016

Hello Away Traveler,

We are now above that red line! We would like to keep it that way. The boys need your full support on Sunday for their third match in seven days. The Sounders are dancing up the table but there is more work to do!

Thank you for purchasing your VANCOUVER AWAY Ticket(s) through the Emerald City Supporters. You are one of 220 total travelers. Here is everything you need to know to support to your fullest:

Tickets:
Your VANCOUVER AWAY tickets for Sunday, October 2, 2016 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 print your ticket(s) and keep them on you for the entirety of the match.

Bus Riders:
PRINT YOUR TICKETS AND BRING THEM WITH YOU. Bus riders will not receive paper tickets like they have in previous years.
YOU MUST BRING YOUR PASSPORT/PASSPORT CARD/ENHANCED DL. If you are for any reason denied entry at the border, you WILL be left behind.
If you selected Tacoma as your pickup location:
Be at the pickup location SR512/I5 Park and Ride (address: 10617 S. Tacoma Way, Tacoma) NO LATER than 09:00. The bus will leave promptly at 09:15 and if you are not there the bus WILL leave without you.
If you selected Seattle as your pickup location:
Be at the Northgate Park & Ride (address: 10200 1st Ave. NE) near NE 103rd St. & 1st Ave NO LATER than 10:00. The bus will leave promptly at 10:15 and if you are not there the bus WILL leave without you.
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. Keep your tickets on you for the entirety of the match.

Vancouver pre-func:
New this year we have a pre-func location for those of you with match-only tickets from 12:00-15:00 at The Pint:

The Pint
455 Abbott St
Vancouver V6B2L2, Canada

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 15:00 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. Bus riders will be escorted by stadium staff to Gate C.
Per MLS rules, all away fans must enter as a group – this means if you drove yourself you will need to meet the group at the pre-func location at THE PINT. LEAVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME TO PARK AND MEET at THE PINT.
MATCH-ONLY PURCHASERS NEED TO MEET THE GROUP AT THE PINT BETWEEN 14:45 AND 15:00.
At 15:00 Match-only purchasers will be escorted by stadium staff from The Pint to Gate C to meet up with the bus travelers.
Both bus riders and match-only purchasers will arrive at Gate C by 15:30. We are entering at Gate C after a short security briefing.
Entering the Stadium:
ECS Tifo crew will enter first.

After they enter, we will all pass through security together including wanding and full pat downs and enter the stadium. Security entrance is the same as Century Link field and the same bag restrictions apply. Our section is Section 219/221. All seats are to be treated as GA. Our group will share the section with STH that also purchased away match tickets. We ask that you stay in 219/221.

FRIENDS OR FAMILY IN OTHER MLS OR OTHER 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 or any other 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. The entire section including STHs are expected to follow this hold. This is not a match where you may choose to leave the section at your own risk. 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 and we'll head home. ETA in Seattle is 20:00 or so. Tacoma will be a bit later. Even travel monkeys have to respect the time space continuum.

Up the Sounders! Up the ECS!

monkey mail says northgate 10 buses leave 10:15 on the bottom of the map it says 9 and 9;15.....
I'm assuming based off of past years 10 is correct and map is wrong but let's get official clarification for everyones sake.

Thank you for the heads up. Clarification is Northgate 10 and leaving at 10:15. Please ignore the times on the map.

An updated map was sent to all bus riders about 30 minutes ago. In addition, an update to Monkey Mail was also sent to match only purchasers.
