Rental cars are turning into a major hassle due to the car shortage!!

We are arriving on Wed at midnight and leaving Sunday afternoon. We are staying downtown so we don’t have to rent a car. Still not sure how to get to the stadium yet.

There's an area in North Austin called The Domain. It's a trendy little area with stores, bars, and restaurants. It's in the same general area as the stadium. If you can find lodging in that area, you are golden. It's almost within walking distance to the stadium.

Tickets for Austin away will go on sale Wednesday, 6/16, at 10AM. $76.50 for members; limit 1 per membership. Wednesday the 23rd at noon for non-members, $81 also limit 1. If we have more tickets on July 2, we will expand the quantity one may purchase. Really sucks they're selling them to us for what a Cascadia away match + bus ticket goes for.

Arriving Wednesday afternoon and leaving Sunday early to make it back for SKC@home. Planning on staying downtown but still considering renting a car. Not sure how that'll end up yet.

I am curious, what changed from the announcement of ECS Selling Away tickets until today?

If you booked a flight in the last 24 hours CANCEL, before ya get screwed.

I feel sorry for those who booked saver fares on the announcement from leadership and screwed them.

So just wondering what those of us that made plans, booked flights/hotels/etc. should do at this point - any thoughts? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not seeing any realistic options for tickets under $150 apiece.

Side note - am I incorrect in thinking that ECS leadership is a bit in the wrong here (if not please educate me). I thought the purpose of getting the away tickets here was to secure a discount from what the home club charges - in this case $75 is outrageous for MLS supporter standards yes but still seems to be half of what the going rate is. I'm familiar with the #soccerforall movement but those folks that already made plans are going to end up paying even more by not being able to buy the $75 ECS negotiated tickets. Do we expect the Austin FO to suddenly change their mind on how they treat away supporters groups?

For those of you who have purchased airfare, I'm working with Austin to get you a contact to purchase tickets directly. Should have something soon (I've been thinking that about Austin for weeks now.)
