4/10/19 @ 4:35 pm Monkey Edit: In case you are still stuck in Denver, Colorado:

If you are stranded or still in Colorado you are not the only ones. So lets get together tonight! ECS Members are meeting at Rock Bottom Brewery 1001 16th St Mall #A-100 at 7:00 pm and if Schmetz is one of those members and happens to buy a round of drinks that would be cool because our team is also stuck in Denver. I mean do not put your safety at risk, but if you can get there safely I am sure you will have a good time.

Ticket Deadline (Through ECS) has passed

If you are in need of tickets for the match with ECS you can call Amanda our Colorado Ticket Sales contact @ 303.727.3591 and order through her.

Dunno if anyone on here is going, but I know several people from the Horde are going. I'm stoked to see an away game in Denver.

I purchased and have 1 Ticket for the Colorado Away match.

Unfortunately, my wife needs me to care for her and I am unable to attend.

"If" it can be arrange with the Ticket Monkey's, I would like to give the ticket to someone who can use it and support the sounders.
Even better if its someone who can invite someone new.

Please contact me and we can see if we can arrange you to pickup the ticket under my name before the match.'

We have been asked to be enter the stadium at 6:15-6:30pm.  
Tifo will be inspected as we head into the stadium at Gate A, so have them ready if you are bringing any.   Gate A is a supporter group gate entry only.

Colorado allows bags up to 14”x14”x6”, Prohibited bags include, but are not limited to: large purses, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, luggage of any kind, computer bags, camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size. Bags will be inspected at the gate as we go in! They are not required to be clear bags.
They also have metal detectors now so have things out of your pockets to make entry as quick and easy as possible.

Sealed or empty water bottles will be allowed into the stadium. 32 ounces or less in size. (Water only) We recommend you bring one with you. If you have never been to Colorado that altitude will hit you quickly, especially if you have had any alcohol to drink it sneaks up on you and hits you fast.

Once you enter through Gate A- please group up and wait for everyone in our group to enter the gate. Then we will all walk together as a group to our section.

Game-time Expectations: 
Emerald City Supporters is a supporters group. That's important to remember. Do not do get involved in things that will result in you being kicked out! We need all hands-on deck to spur our boys in green on to victory! 
  
-Our section will be 136 and will be treated as General Admission. We do not enforce seat assignments. Tifo, security, and capos will be in the first row of our section. Everyone else is invited to stand where they feel most comfortable within our section. 

-Participation is encouraged. If you don’t know all the words to the songs, just follow along the best you can, and your support will be felt! Speaking of support, we like to wave flags, so your view will be blocked at times.

-Don’t drink so much that you get sloppy and give anything less than your best. YOUR BEST IS EXPECTED. You should work to exceed that. A note to those of you who have never drank alcohol at high elevation.  It will hit you and it will hit you fast. 
  
-Do not engage in any way with home fans. There's no need to engage in any wordplay, taunting, threats, etc. If you have an issue, notify ECS travel monkeys on the ground or stadium staff. 
  
-You will likely be under surveillance at the stadium. Conduct yourselves accordingly. BEHAVE AS THOUGH YOU ARE BEING WATCHED, BECAUSE YOU PROBABLY ARE.  

-FRIENDS AND FAMILY IN OTHER MLS OR USL TEAM GEAR OR COLORS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND WITH US. We will try to have you and your group reseated. If stadium staff cannot accommodate a reseating, then your group will be asked to leave. 

Postgame: 
We will be held in the section for up to 10-15 minutes. Security will then escort the group back out through the Main Gate and you all will be free to go wherever. Note: If you choose to stay for the fireworks show- be prepared for the traffic jam and you take your own self security into your own hands.

Are supporters still going to be in section 136 as originally planned for the April match? I'm looking to sit near but not in ECS, as I am unable to meet up for the tailgate to retrieve ECS tickets.
