    Ticketmaster MX still doesn't list those matches (http://www.ticketmaster.com.mx/Esta...venue/163913?tm_link=venue_artistvenue_module). They should show up there very soon. Absolute confirmation of the venue with an exact kickoff time (7:30 PM) here: https://miseleccion.mx/

    I was going to call my contact at Soccer House about the USSF membership ticketing procedure, but Wixson's comment on the USSSC thread makes me think that would be a waste of time today.

    I'd guess there will be a general Ticketmaster on sale early next week (Monday or Tuesday). It will probably be cheaper, but more of a hassle, to buy from Ticketmaster with the need to pick up tickets at a retail outlet or at the stadium. I arrive in DF on Sunday morning, so I sense a possible early arrival at Estadio Azteca to collect tickets at Will Call in my future.

    "Will Call
    La entrega de will call en el Estadio Azteca es en las Taquillas de Tlalpan únicamente tres horas antes del evento"

    US Soccer has enough information to include tickets as part as the all-inclusive luxury packages, but leaves the rest of us guessing.

    Both right, 2 bits of information on the same ad
    Click the picture takes you to Ticketmaster.mx and they don't have an event page up yet

    Looking closely at the price map now it says cabecera sur (visitante)
    So that matches up to last 2013 south side visitors. Also makes sense why it's an extra 90 pesos.

    Anyone anticipate for a good amount of tickets to still be available after the banamex pre sale?

    I think so. The match will sell out, but not immediately. The US section will almost definitely be Alto Cabecera Sur ($450). That's where we were in 2009 and 2013 and where the 10,000 Tico supporters were in March.

    If it comes to it, I'm going to buy the cheapest tickets in the adjacent Especial Alto Lateral ($360) and just move over to the US section. I did something similar in 2009 when US Soccer similarly made a mess of away ticketing. I don't think TM let me buy tickets in the right section for that one or I didn't know which was the correct section, so I bought what I could and just asked, "Dónde están los gringos?"

    Incidentally, the entire Alto section is $280 for the June 8th Mexico-Honduras match: https://www.estadioazteca.com.mx/eventos/mexico-vs-honduras-2/

    Nice thanks for the info man. I'm going with a group of both US and Mexico fans. Might have to sit in the general Mexican area and not wear anything US related or risk getting piss thrown at. I'm Mexican and American and fluent in Spanish, I don't know how much that will help me out or even if it would at all.

    I can already hear them asking me why I go for the US when i speak Spanish and was born from 1st generation Mexican American parents lol.

    Looks like most if not all Pickup locations are open on Saturdays and Sundays. Here's a link for all the will call locations and hours, just make sure you bring your passport and the Credit card you used online.

    Thanks. That link is super helpful, complete with access to a map and hours of operation. I hope for the possibility of day of game will call at one of those retail outlets rather than at Estadio Azteca.

    Anyone get any recent information from US Soccer about their sale? I figured I would wait until tomorrow or Friday to try to contact them prior to the Ticketmaster on sale on Monday.

    It sure seems like US Soccer is allocating tickets to its own luxury packages, AO, and who knows who else before even communicating the process to us lowly USSF members.

    On to the Ticketmaster sale.

    I just called them.

    She said they didn't know the ticket prices so I told her anybody can see them on Ticketmaster. She said yes but they don't know what section they're in. I asked how they were selling tickets already and she said it's because it was a package so apparently they're in a different section (uh yeah ok, you mean you're charging an astronomical amount anyway, it doesn't matter how many more pesos Mexico charges you for a ticket). I said I was concerned SC members weren't getting priority over AO and she claimed "more tickets will be on sale to SC members than the AO allotment" and they will email us immediately when they have pricing.

    $219 for the AO package?!
    It was $725 for the hotel 'deal'
    So they charge $506 for two nights. I went to Hilton Mexico website and got the same room for $320. And that was just price for one room, you know they are getting a group rate.
    SMH made $200+ profit on these rooms, so much for non-profit status.

    You're exactly right, the AO members who already spent the $725 should be pissed off.

    To be fair, this is the cost from the Travel company.. not from AO. I get that AO may get a cut but this is a niche travel agency charging a premium for a very niche travel package.

    We will all get tickets, I'm not worried about that at all.

    I met one of the travel company agents. I asked how they priced the stuff and they said that's the price. Then I said yeah but I can book it all cheaper. Then they stopped talking to me.
