BFV Tifo Team would like share tips in creating one of the best supporting environments for our Sounders FC. Please feel free to add.

To clear up the difference between General BFV Two-Pole and Personal Two-Pole Tifo – General BFV Two-Pole Tifo are ones managed by our Tifo Team. The Tifo Team will make General BFV Two-Pole available during march and terraces, and would like to collect all at the end of the match. Personal Two-Pole Tifo is one you have created and would like to use throughout the season. You will hold on to your own Personal Tifo throughout the season. We highly encourage everyone to make their own Personal Two-Pole Tifo at some point, the purpose of the two-pole is to personally express your support.

Preparation goes a long way. Futbol does not have to be a spectator sport, your demonstration of support can impact the game.
Here are our tips…

Home Pub Merchants Café…stay ready my friend.
• 45 minutes before March to the Match, announcements to close tabs, order last drinks.
• 30 minutes before March to the Match, set up two-pole tifos (personal two-pole tifos will be displayed in the stadium).
• 15 minutes before March to the Match, head out to Occidental Park for March, position BFV at the front of the March, near ECS banner.

March to the Match is not only away to be pumped up for the match and demonstrate pride for our club, but it’s also an important event for our Barra to represent our community. The March to the Match is also a great opportunity for us to target and recruit raza, so represent, and invite gente to join us.

March to Match…Viva!
• Gather in front of crowd, near ECS banner.
• Try to stay together.
• If you have a general bfv two-pole tifo for the march, be sure to return your poles to the person collecting at the end of the march. You cannot walk in the stadium with pvc poles.
• March to the end with ECS, near Southwest entrance of Clink.

This is where we give our Full 90. The goal of being a Support Group in GA is to have has much impact on the outcome of the game as possible. We do this by singing as loud as we can the entire match, jump, and fully express our support of our club.

We all are excited to be among great company, and can feel inclined to socialize, but in the terraces, it’s really about our club winning, and we hope to do whatever it takes to motivate our boys (there’s plenty of time after the match to catch up with all the latest chisme ;)).

RBP (Royal Brougham Park) Terraces…JuanTwentyOne
• Get to GA Lower 121 as soon as you enter the stadium and claim your seat. La Barra is gathering in the middle of Lower 121.
• Stay near your seat half an hour before the match, GA fills up fast and you can lose your seat. We cannot save seats in advance.
• Advise to have plenty of water, loud singing and jumping is dehydrating.
• Learning the songs: http://www.weareecs.com/multimedia/songs
• Follow our Capo. Capo is the person in front of our section leading the songs. Let’s also take care of our Capo, offer them water, look out for them, or just hand them a beer.
• Be sure to bring your Personal Two-Pole Tifo, poles will be made available in GA.
• Hoist Two-Pole Tifo and flags at appropriate times: at the beginning of the match, the half, end, when we score, or just observe when others are waving flags. If you see an unclaimed flag next to you, just wave it, we all share.
• Return BFV Two-Pole Tifos and Flags at the end of match, someone will collect them. Do not take home unless it’s your own personal tifo.

A quick note from your ECS Tifo team: We understand that we ran out of 2-pole poles for the last home match. We'll be sending over substantially more for this next match (Tigres). By the time we play Portland, we should have 50 pairs of poles available, so hopefully that issue won't pop up again.
