Hi All,

Jack from SSE here. I haven't seen any mention of this yet so I'll go ahead and post here for anyone interested. Even though we are fresh off the Cup win, preseason begins in earnest soon - why not spend it with your fellow supporters? And for us east coasters, it is one of the few times throughout the year we get to see our boys.

Background Info:
    - The Carolina Challenge Cup is being hosted by the Charleston Battery (USL) in Charleston, SC from Saturday, 2/18 through Saturday, 2/25 at MUSC Health Stadium
    - This preseason tournament will involve three teams: SSFC, Charleston & Columbus (better known as Clownbus)
    - Each team plays each other once in a round-robin format over the course of the week (thus double headers on 2/18, 2/22 & 2/25)
Game schedule:
    Saturday, February 18th
    Atlanta United vs. Columbus Crew (5:00pm)
    Charleston Battery vs. Seattle Sounders (7:30pm)

    Wednesday, February 22nd
    Charleston Battery vs. Columbus Crew (5:00pm)
    Atlanta United vs. Seattle Sounders (7:30pm)

    Saturday, February 25th
    Columbus Crew vs. Seattle Sounders (4:30pm)
    Charleston Battery vs. Atlanta United (7:00pm)
UPDATE 2/7/17:
- For the games on 2/22 & 2/25, we will be in section W10, in the first row or two - if you haven't purchased tickets or need to relocate to our section, you will need to call Drew @ 843-277-6437 (PS. it is cheaper to buy over the phone).
- We have a discount code for ordering tickets online: "SOUNDERS"
- We will have a designated area for parking/tailgating for each game
- We do not have a deal with a hotel, however, http://www.airbnb.com is a great alternative as most places go for much less than what hotels are charging in/around Charleston

Purchase tickets here: http://www.etix.com/ticket/v/10/musc-health-stadium

More information & updates as they come in i.e. where some of us will be sitting, tailgating, etc. will be posted here as well as on our SSE facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SeaSoundersEast/

If anyone has any questions, please PM me, email me at jack.burtch@gmail.com or call me at 425-233-9104 (I will be down in Charleston starting on 2/22 for the games on 2/22 & 2/25).

Apparently you can use a code for discount on tickets:

- We have a discount code for tickets: "SOUNDERS"
- We will have a designated area for parking/tailgating for each game
- We do not have a deal with a hotel, however, http://www.airbnb.com is a great alternative as most places go for much less than what hotels are charging in/around Charleston

I'd love to go to this, but the airfare is too expensive.

Would flying into Atlanta from Seattle ($250-300 RT) or other airports and renting a car (4-5 hr drive from ATL) be an option? We have SSE members driving as well from many parts (FL to PA) who can carpool.

Oh and for anyone is interested, we have an extra couch in a townhome we got on Airbnb that is 5-10 min north of the stadium, in case anyone wants to crash.
