Easy question: when will postseason away leg tickets become available on the ECS site? Also, if we play PDX or VAN at any point in the postseason, will there be buses?

They will be become available when we a) know our opponent, and b) when they sell them to us.

Once we know who is playing in the play-in match on Wednesday, October 29th or 30th, the monkeys will make tentative arrangements with both clubs ahead of time, then we will hopefully be able to put the tickets on sale immediately following the match (Much like we did for USOC matches).

Should our opponent be a Cascadia rival, we will try to make arrangements for buses, but with only a two day turnaround, I'm not sure at this point if that's feasible. We'll know more after this weekend's matches.

As it currently stands FC Dallas will host the Vancouver Whitecaps on Wednesday night in a knockout round match. The winner of this match will play against us IN SEATTLE on Monday, November 10th and the 2nd leg (in Dallas/Vancouver) will be determined after said team has clinched the spot past the knockout round.

That being said, start looking forward to visiting either Dallas or Vancouver! GO Sounders!!!

Say what? Shouldn't we get the second leg as we hold home field advantage?

My mistake. Missed that part. Either way, we're 5 matches from a treble and I couldn't be more psyched. EBFG

Nope. You're gonna be at $400-550 or thereabouts for this one.

Dallas is by far the worst game-day venue in MLS. Total bunch of fucksticks that run the away-support stuff there.

If ever a place should be burned, destroyed, wrecked, and killed, it's FC Dallas Stadium.

So FCD's stadium sucks, Chicago's pitch sucks.... what's wrong with soccer pitches sponsored by Toyota nowadays?
But seriously. Toyota Park sucks (or is it Toyota Stadium...?) and they need to host games of this magnitude at a better match-day venue with better away support organization. Maybe they can call ol' Jerry Jones and borrow his stadium... oh wait, the scoreboard would get in the way.

It's not the stadium that sucks there... it's the ineptitude of F*C* Dallas front office and game day staff. These clowns couldn't organize a piss-up in a brewery.

Really hoping Vancouver wins so we get A) a derby, B) revenge opportunity, C) easier travel on short notice, and D) the travel monkeys don't have to deal with fucksticks in Dallas.

Also pushing for a VAN win. A. I have some killer 2-pole ideas and 2. I want to see Vancouver go down at our hands in revenge for them celebrating on our pitch a couple weeks ago.

All the above reasons and more A) VAN would play 3 games in 9 days including travel to/from DAL B) much easier travel on our boys and travelling supporters C) Revenge.
