    Anyone have some info on how day of tickets at the box office work? Can I save on TicketMaster fees if I pay on the day? And are the day of box office tickets still mobile only? Thanks

    Not 100% sure about the fees day-of - but I do not believe there are extra "convenience" fees.

    They will tell you that the tickets are mobile-only and will ask you for your phone # so everyone around you can hear it - but I'll be at the box office getting mine printed out - so you can likely get them that way too if you ask - especially if you can hold up a non-smart-phone.

    This time I actually won't be able to watch it. I'll be in Pittsburgh while my PS4 is back in Westminster, MD. Damn work!!!

    I always tell them I don't have a smart phone. If needed I can bring a flip phone. Hehe

    @onefineesq?

    FWIW, the last Open Cup match ticket did not have fees, but I don't recall if I did that through the team's portal into ticketmaster or in ticketmaster with the proper discount code. NYCFC was quick to advertise $10 tickets on their twitter account.

    Great question, to which I don't have an answer! I was going to buy tickets at the gate for the Jamaica international on June 5 (which you know, and is why you pinged me here) but I did not actually buy at the gate. Later on that day, it seemed that all the cheaper tickets in the midfield area were dwindling fast. So few remained that I didn't want to risk not getting a sideline seat, so I bought online for the Jamaica game. I do plan on going to the USOC game though. I haven't looked at ticket prices, but last weeks USOC game was general admission. I am positive that this weeks game is general admission too. As such, there is really no reason to buy in advance, as it doesn't guarantee you a better seat. Walk up and take your chances that it avoids you the ticketmaster fee that I am SURE you will have to pay if you buy online. That's what I am going to do.

    I used the STH email link and it first went to Account Manager, which makes you go to ticketbastard - which listed $20 + fees. Then I closed the window and went back to email and clicked again - this time it brought up the $15 no-fee choice. Technology is grand.

    fwiw, I ended up getting parking passes in the lot just barely south of the stadium on 2nd St - not sure how they'll act when I a) show up at 4pm instead of the 6pm the parking pass says, and 2) start drinking behind my car once they let me park :) If they don't let us drink in the lot, I'm heading over to the DU area.
    Does anyone know if Vlad and the other EchaPonza (sp?) guys over there as well? I know they sound like they're nearby at the very least. Hopefully I can drink somewhere without spending money at a bar.

    Thanks guys. Maybe I'll test it out on Wednesday. I'm not a STH so the direct from club option isn't available. Ticketmaster fees on the $20 online sale is $4.25 per ticket. Not earth shattering but why pay em for a game with Audi probably only 1/4 full?

    I’ll be arriving early to get dinner from a nearby restaurant. Any suggestions?

    The tickets on the portal do not have fees, if you enter the code Barra you get the option to buy tickets for $10 flat.

    I would get there real early because there also is a Nats game that night. In other words, a human zoo of massive proportions complete with a good complement of Phillies fans. If you want to get a seat, use Open Table for a space at the Salt Line. All Purpose does not take reservations and IDK about the Beer Garden.

    If you get there after 5, bring a PBJ for dinner.

    Nats washed out tonight and they rescheduled for a split doubleheader Wednesday. So now Wednesday is Nats at 1, then Nats again and DCU both at 7.

    How many guys do they have on international duty?
    I hope Durkin plays 90 (or 120 since it is an Open Cup game and we like to give the few fans on hand an extra 30 min)

    If I was in town I might go for a tripleheader. The Nats will definitely still be playing once the DCU game ends.

    The Natinals and United at the same time was already gonna be a cluster******** ... the extra afternoon game can only make things worse. Might be the only time I want a quick exit after a United game (as mentioned above we should be able to beat the baseball fans leaving, assuming they aren't getting blown out again) :)

    Wasn't there a clause in the Audi Field agreement with the District that there wouldn't be simultaneous baseball and soccer games? I swear I remember something like that.

    I believe the phrasing was "every attempt will be made" to not have games at the same time or even the same day.

    So, really not a real "rule" just strongly-worded encouragement :cool:
