Ok, quick update from the Fan Council...(your loyal representative). 1) That members email last night was pretty interesting...definitely didn't expect that it was a jersey announcement..but now i'm surprised that i was surprised. They don't shy away from commercializing their products. I did like that they put in a big plug for the membership group. 2) AGM in Scottsdale was pretty cool, as always. We sat down with Carlos, Jay, and Mike Flynn to discuss issues and concerns about the fans, tickets, stadiums, etc. As easy as it is to lob bombs at USSF from a distance, they have been nothing but open, forthright, and very very transparent with us. Personally, they've won me over for that alone. Earnie and Gregg and the Athletes Council were milling around the hotel, very approachable. 3) Upcoming membership changes will be announced in the upcoming weeks/months. Personally, I really like them (but as with anything there will be some pros/cons). Can't divulge too much in random public forum like this but here's a few basics (please don't out me): a) Three membership levels (now we just have the one). Free, about the same, and premium. The levels will allow you access to certain things (events, field access, pre-game lounge, discounts, etc). b) current tiers gold/silver/etc will be replaced by this new structure. c) tix: like now, multiple presale windows. The 3 groups will each have their own presale slots. For WC draw (and big game draws) each of the 3 levels will have their own pots. d) caps: if you have X caps then you'll get put in better pot. This is to reward loyalty/caps rather than cost levels of membership. It's fair, imo. e) points: they'll add a points program (like airline miles and badges). They don't really mean much from a ranking perspective, but the points can be cashed in for events/access/discounts. You can earn points by buying things, attending games, etc. 4) website/portal: look for this to launch pretty soon. (finally). It will have lots of flashy content and stuff, but looking forward to the member portal. You'll see status, point level, upcoming games, etc.. Ticket Prices: always a hot topic. They will have continue to have high prices for premium games. To their credit the recent games and upcoming friendlies have ~$30-40 seats avail. Honestly that's more than fair in my opinion. If you want a better seat then it will be expensive. Gold Cup, they have no say in stadium selection, dates, or ticket prices. Ok, that's it for now. Most all their focus is on the WWC this summer (and rightfully so).
