Monkey update:

Hello ECS,

The Emerald City Supporters have amassed 22+ supporters, who will descend upon Sacramento at Papa Murphy’s Park. It is time for goals and to advance to the next round of USOC. Let’s show Sac Republic how it’s done. The Rave Green will stop at NOTHING and they can always count on us wherever they go.

Here’s everything you need to know for this match day:


Your Sac Republic ticket(s) to stand with the Emerald City Supporters for the match on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 at 8:00pm local time are attached to this email. Print your ticket(s), bring it with you, and keep it with you for the entirety of the match.

Stadium Location:

Papa Murphy’s Park, Cal Expo, Sacramento
1600 Exposition Blvd.
Sacramento, CA 95815


There is no designated Away Supporter parking. However, parking will cost $10

Weather Preparedness:

It’s going to be on the warm side so dress accordingly.

Stadium Entry:

Sacramento allows all size bags, but they will be inspected at the gate as we go in!

We have been asked to be at the gate by 6pm. All 2-poles and flags will be inspected as we head into the stadium, so have them ready if your bringing any.

Sealed or empty water bottles will be allowed into the stadium. 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 120 (we have the entire section) 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.

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.

We have the whole section to ourselves. Drum and Capo will be towards the front. Stand whever you feel comfortable.


We will be held in the section for up to 30 minutes. Security will then escort the group back out through the Main Gate and you all will be free to go wherever. If you choose not to stay with the group, you assume the risks of your own security. THIS IS THE WORKING PLAN, IT MAY CHANGE.

As always, make SURE you check with the travel monkey on the ground for the latest schedule/details.

I'm in! I'm from the area, so happy to help with restaurants and such. Not much near the stadium IIRC.

Drinking options around the stadium do look scarce, anyone else going to be downtown for a few beers from mid-afternoon?
