Stadium Entry:

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.



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 your bringing any. Gate A is a supporter group gate entry only.



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 as it is supposed to be on the warm side.



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 two rows of 135 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.

Is there a cut-off time for purchasing tickets from the ECS store? Family is waffling on whether they'll come or not (a baby is due 5 days after the match).

I am going to this match and have purchased tickets through ECS. However I have not received the tickets yet. I am growing concerned as I depart for Denver in a few days. I purchased on May 29th, so in theory that should be plenty of time for a match on the 4th of July.

ETA for shipping these tickets?

You will need to meet the travel monkey on the ground for your ticket(s) There will be no shipped tickets, or emailed tickets like in the past. Meet the monkey = get the tickets.
