    I was looking at the Lincoln Financial Field website, and they had a list of "Soccer Specific Prohibited Items". On the list is "Bags larger than 12 inches by 12 inches by 12 inches".

    Does this include the sack packs? They don't care at Red Bull Arena. I usually bring one to carry all my stuff in so I don't have to cram everything in my pockets. Are they allowed?

    Anybody still looking for a room. I got a room for the weekend on Priceline $88 a night plus $20.93 in taxes at Loews Philadelphia Hotel! Was not going to stay for the night but found this deal in a great hotel and now do not have to drive home after the game and can partake in adult beverages. :)

    From what I've been told, that is where the oversize vehicle parking is; $40.00 per vehicle.

    If they don't sell the over 60k for this game, I think it's a dissapointment. It has huge advantages over the Hartford game which drew 36k on a Tuesday. This game is on a Sat which increases fans traveling from far to watch the game. And it's the last game before the team leaves and we know the starters will play. How does this game not get over 60k?

    What the hell happened to people on this site in the last week. Every single thread has turned into some ridiculous apocalyptic moan fest. The US needs to sell over 60k tickets?!?! When's the last time the US played a home game against a team without a big fanbase in the United States and sold anywhere close to the 48,000 that have already been sold? This is a huge success.

    Not only that, most of the fans will be pro USA. When is the last time the US had 60,000 fans for a friendly? Things are moving in the right direction.

    The same way no other game like this one ever has.

    Don't get me wrong, I hope they sell out the place. But the last time the U.S. drew 60,000 fans for a game against anyone but Mexico, Brazil or Argentina was probably 1994. Talking like 60,000 is any kind of minimum is silly.

    Welcome

    1) Wear Red or a National Team Jersey.
    2) Linc is VERY easy to get to via subway -- use the broad street line.
    3) Good beer can be had for about a $1 more than the Bud and bud light swill they sell for around $7 a cup. Many stands ONLY sell that swill, so if you get in that line, just go to another stand.
    4) Feel free to dress up in face paint, etc. There will be MANY like you.
    5) Sing your heart out.
    6) Be prepared to become addicted. This is NOT like any baseball or Football game you've ever been to.

    haha cool thanks! I am actually driving down from Jersey with my brother, so no need of subway.

    edit: the turks also will be wearing red I think. Perhaps blue with Red would be better?

    OK, bummer here: I am sitting in NYC (East Village, not far from Nevada's) with 3 tickets to tomorrow's game - not supporters section, section 117, row 20. My wife is now sick and the doctor just said no way we can travel. If anyone is interested, email tazerowe at yahoo.com. Obviously, we'd need to be able to make the swap tonight or tomorrow in NYC.
