I am the rare Dallas/Albuquerque based fan that usually has to travel to see the Home games. My wife and I will be driving in from the North Dallas area if anyone still needs a ride. Planning on hitting the pub for pre game festivities complete with a designated driver! I will be traveling for the next few days with limited access so please feel free to contact me directly. epicv14.c@gmail.com Dallas is a bitch of a city to get around in and they put the FC stadium in what feels like Oklahoma so I am happy to help where I can. Safe Travels to all!!

For those headed back on Monday, the club is split betweeen three separate flights due to availability. First time I've heard of that happening in some time

I have one ticket for the game. I still need one more. Eileen said there may be someone that has one for me. We made a decision to drive down from Omaha. Send me a text (402)319-7693

Thanks

Just a heads up the supporter call will happen this afternoon and Monkey Mail will go out later this evening. As a reminder ECS does not handle ticket exchanges. If you sell a ticket to another person because you can't make it you will need to forward the ticket to that person after the monkey mail is sent. In addition, as a reminder the email that is in your store account is the email your tickets will be sent to.

Evans Row for life! :)

I'll probably be at airport around 1130. The bar restaurants are usually quite crowded on a Saturday for lunch. If we end up in N land, that actually may help us as the 12 lounge and bigfoot out there usually are much less crowded. The Africa lounge in A is usually less crowded too...

If we end up in N?

There's like a 99% chance of that happening.

Also, tip for everyone flying Alaska. If not in the exit rows or the Ozzie row (6) try to put yourself in 7,8 or 9 at checkin. They started upgrading the fleet for their new economy+ that has added legroom in those rows. It seems they're putting the planes already modified on longer flights. The early flight has a -800 that has been modified. You can tell on -800s because first class will only have 3 rows. On a -900 like the nooner most of us are on, there really is no way to tell at this point.

ECS MONKEY MAIL | FC DALLAS PLAYOFFS AWAY | NOVEMBER 6, 2016

Hello Away Traveler,

Kickoff 8:00 PM (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 toward victory; everything else is secondary.
• Our section is 112/113 and as always treated as General Admission, we do not enforce seat assignments. Everyone is invited to stand where they feel most comfortable.
• Keep you scarf tied AT ALL TIMES, inside and outside the stadium. In the past, there have been a rash of scarf snatchings at Dallas matches.
• Participation is encouraged. Song cards can be downloaded ahead of time from our site: https://www.weareecs.com/multimedia/songs Don't worry if you don't know all the words, just follow along the best you can and your support will be felt!
• There may be times where you can't see as well as you might like due to flags. 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 support, and they are going to need every ounce of strength. If a flag is in your way and you don't like it- please feel free to change seats. That is part of why we do GA, so you are not stuck in an uncomfortable spot.
• We understand that for some this may be a vacation in which you meet up with friends and family in the area and that's great. They are more than welcome to stand with us, as long as they DO NOT DISPLAY the colors and gear of the home team or any other team. Our section is the away section, and stadium security may mistake your friend or family member for an instigator, and no one wants that.
• FRIENDS OR FAMILY IN OTHER MLS OR ANY OTHER TEAM GEAR OR COLORS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND WITH US. of section 112/13 at Toyota Stadium 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.
Postgame 10:30ish:
The MLS established procedure for those holding away supporters is to remain in our section for up to 20 minutes while the home fans are cleared from the concourses. When the match ends, we ask that you scoot to the right interior of our section to avoid any contact with home fans. We remain until stadium security gives us the instruction to leave, and then we all leave together and stay together as we are escorted by security back to the RED LOT.
Eternal Blue Forever Green,
ECS Travel Monkey
