MONKEY MAIL SHIPPED ON WED EVENING here it is:

Hello Away Travelers!!

ECS welcomes you as an elite group of 59+ traveling supporters for the match between the Seattle Sounders and FC Dallas. With the second game in as many weekends in the beautiful Heartland our boys are going to need you for all 90+ minutes. Forget about Sunday and move on to what we do, supporting our boys to the next victory!

Your Travel Monkey for this weekend will be Andy Hegeman (@andy_2991)

Tickets:

Your Dallas Away ticket(s) for June 1, 2019 at 7:00 pm local time to stand with the Emerald City Supporters are attached to this email! Print them and bring them with you.

Parking:

Toyota Stadium is located at 9200 World Cup Way in Frisco, Texas. Parking for visiting supporters can be found in the HIGHLANDER GREEN LOT. (see attached map). There is no fee for parking at this lot. There will be a designated area within this lot for our group.

Pre-func: 4:00-5:45 pm

No host tailgate in the HIGHLANDER GREEN LOT. The parking lot opens at 4:00 PM. What is a no host tailgate you ask? Food and beverages will not be provided for you, but we encourage you to bring your own food, drink and/or bring some to share with everyone. Be ready to hang out, have a drink, and meet other traveling Sounders away supporters. Don’t forget we like to sing too!

Security Meet Up:

5:30 pm Pack up your tailgate and gather to meet with security

5:40 pm Security will give a quick briefing, review tifo items and then escort us to the East Gate, through gates and security theatre and then through the concourses to our section. Any flags, two poles, drums, etc will also be inspected at this time. The standard PVC pipe poles are allowed for any personal flags you may want to bring. Our travel monkey has the drum, two poles and some flags as well.

March to the Stadium:

5:45 pm-6:00 pm Security will escort the group to the stadium through the East entrance and to our section.

Clear Bag Policy:

Note: Standard MLS security measures will be enforced. You will go through metal detectors and bag sizes are enforced. Clear bags 14x14x6 and small clutches 5.5x8.5 without handle or strap only. If you have attended home matches it is exactly the same as Clink.

Gametime 7:00 pm (Important Information):

Emerald City Supporters is a supporters group. That's important to remember. Our reason for being at the match is to spur our boys toward victory; everything else is secondary.



· Our section is 111 and we will have the top 4 rows. Our section as always treated as General Admission; we do not enforce seat assignments. Everyone is invited to stand where they feel most comfortable.

· Keep you scarf tied AT ALL TIMES, inside and outside the stadium. In the past, there have been a rash of scarf snatchings at Dallas matches.

· Participation is encouraged. Song cards can be downloaded ahead of time from our site: https://www.weareecs.com/multimedia/songs Don't worry if you don't know all the words, just follow along the best you can and your support will be felt!

· There may be times where you can't see as well as you might like due to flags. We like to wave flags. Even during the run of play sometimes. We feel like it's an important part of showing the boys our support, and they are going to need every ounce of strength. If a flag is in your way and you don't like it- please feel free to change seats. That is part of why we do GA, so you are not stuck in an uncomfortable spot.

· We understand that for some this may be a vacation in which you meet up with friends and family in the area and that's great. They are more than welcome to stand with us, as long as they DO NOT DISPLAY the colors and gear of the home team or any other team. Our section is the away section, and stadium security may mistake your friend or family member for an instigator, and no one wants that.

· FRIENDS OR FAMILY IN OTHER MLS TEAM GEAR OR COLORS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND WITH US. The four rows at Toyota Stadium is designated for fans and supporters of Seattle Sounders FC. If you or someone in your group is wearing colors of another MLS team, they will be asked to remove those items. If they refuse, we will try to have your group reseated. If stadium staff cannot accommodate a reseating, then your group will be asked to leave.

Postgame 9:15 pm ish

The MLS established procedure for those holding away supporter tickets is to remain in our section for up to 15-30 minutes while the home fans are cleared from the concourses. When the match ends, we ask that you scoot to the right interior of our section to avoid any contact with home fans. We remain until stadium security gives us the instruction to leave, and then we all will be escorted as a group by stadium security back to the HIGHLANDER GREEN LOT.



*NOTE Their will be fireworks after the game. We will leave before the fireworks show is starts. If you decide to stay it will be without security.

Just get a ticket to the stadium anywhere and come prefunk with us and just join in the section. Pretty sure we'll have room for stray Sounders fans.
