Monkey edit.

Heads up to anyone that reads this upon seeing a whole slew of away tickets going on sale today.

We are contacting a few bus companies in the hopes that we can arrange a school bus for cheap or something to bus us back downtown after the match. We had a few issues with public transit last year that we would like to mitigate.

I assure you that we have plenty of tickets (our initial allotment is 210 tickets), and they will go on sale soon once we hear back. Pricing is still TBD, as we're hoping to find a cheap enough bus to roll it into the ticket for $5 or so to cover getting back downtown. If it gets much more than that we will set it as an option. For members if we do it as a combo only option, it will not be more than $28 just for planning purposes. Anything over than that we will make the bus an option.

What hotel is everyone staying at? Are you planning to be downtown or Bloomington area? Last yr I was in Bloomington area at the Marriott and the drive wasn't bad.

I'm all booked. Staying at the Embassy Suites smack downtown. If the price is right, much better to be there. Just light rail from airport. Plus pre-pre func Friday night will be at the German bar who's name I forgot... That's all I have to say about that!

Oh, and we'll be at the log ride at Mall Of America about 430pm Friday :)

Man I knew I should of held off. Most hotels were going up in price and or sold out. I booked a room for 2nights at the courtyard Marriott Bloomington. I will have my daughter along so I won't be out Fri night at the bars. But I'll see ya prob at mall of America. And I'll see ya b4 the match somewhere.

Did someone contact Fran? She's an admin with the Horde and an organizer/lawyer by trade. I feel like there's some talent that could be tapped.

Unfortunately the bus option is not going to work out. Tickets will go on sale tomorrow at noon.

Oops, missed the tix deadline for this match but I have my flights booked. What to do now?

I checked the shop page - 138 tix available. Good. Bought flights. Now back to the shop and clicked the link only to see the dreaded 'no longer for sale' message. Ugh, my fault for not clicking through before, but what do I do now?

Do we know what section we'll use? I could buy tickets nearby.

Or maybe buy tix for anywhere in the stadium but then join the ECS section. If there really are 138 unsold tix today there should be plenty of space, but I think some teams like to sell the unsold inventory so maybe not.

Or should I just cancel my flights (24hr cancellation) and give it up? I'd be sad but I'm not going all the way to the middle of the country to spend a day in a hotel.

Thanks for any help!

Friend! Do you still have your flights and such? Call the MNUFC box office and let them know you missed sales cutoff with us, but you want away support tickets. They should be able to set you up. Sorry for the late reply.

Thanks SethSaxPlayer! Don't know when I didn't think of calling the MUFC FO myself. Anyway, called them up and a very nice agent booked the next available 'returned' seats from ECS, so we are effectively in the ECS section. Awesome! Time to cheer on Rual and co to more goals.
