    Yes, still Red Tier capacity level (20%) for the first two games, then hopefully a transition to Orange Tier (33%)...but that could take longer than most people realize... Even though we are currently in Orange Tier, there are logistics that need to be met in the stadium...spacing for social distancing probably the primary requirement driving capacity and seating.

    Until guidelines change, there will be no increase in capacity. Because of the 6 foot distancing guideline there is not any room for more people.

    Yep, could be many months until 33%...

    They are hoping to be full capacity after Stanford

    I would like to think that they are clever enough to realize that, if they allocate some space for vaccinated people they can increase capacity. e.g. one side for vaccinated people with less social distancing space. The other side more spread out.

    That’s an interesting idea, but do any of the government guidelines take vaccinated people into account for anything but small gatherings?

    Doesn't matter how much you space them out if you are only allowed 20% of capacity.

    Just finished my second round of the STH lottery (sorry for using the word lottery) for the 3 games in May versus SEA, POR, and SKC. The process started on Tuesday, but my time slot didn't open until today Thurs @ 12:00 PM. However, it seemed like there were plenty of seats available, so I got almost the same seats for all 3 games, although 10+ rows higher than my normal seats, and $69 each in 106.

    The rep had told me not to worry about getting tickets, because they added 1,000 seats to this lottery. Now I'm also realizing that if I were willing to sit on the opposite South side of the stadium, I could have gotten rows closer to the field. Maybe I will try that next time.

    I just posted in the blog thread on this. Mine was at 10 AM this time and there were plenty of seats. I got almost the exact same seats for Portland and KC and choose to sit on the player side for Seattle in not as good a location.

    Still haven't been able to get decent moat seats due to unavailability or needing to buy 4 seats (only need 2)... it seems a bit wrong you can't buy similar level/location seats to your season tix. Though it seamed like they aren't running the moat bars and that's the only reason we're in the moat (wife preference; we've been sitting in row 1 upper deck and I'm quite happy there).

    I was disappointed at the first game that they wouldn’t let us into the Club area. However, at least we are still getting parking passes, I guess irrespective of where we sit in the stadium.

    has anyone tried getting the STH discount at the food trucks?

    Scored tickets for all three matches. Unfortunately, all the $13 scoreboard terrace tickets were gone. I had to upgrade to $21 Supporters Reserved tickets, Section 118.

    I learned that opening more than one tab at a time doesn't work, one game at a time. Also, I had some technical difficulties for the third match, but it ended up saving me money because, at first, there was no availability in Sections 117 and 118. F'in internet.

    Hopefully, that will be it for competing for tickets because California is supposedly reopening fully on June 15th.

    Today i saw a Quakes email that STHs can request free Away game tickets, so I put in a request. Don't know if I will receive any...

    Are all MLS teams giving free tickets to their home game opponents, or are the Quakes somewhat unique?

    Looks as though there are still seats available for the next three games for under $30. Ticketmaster is a nightmare, though, keep seeing "no tickets available!" and have to back out and come back in. And it's ridiculously slow. If they had any competition, they'd be out of business in a minute.

    Also, the seating is rigid -- lots of 2-seat and 4-seat opportunities, but single seats, 3-seat, 5-seat -- not so much. I was able to talk my daughter into coming with us so we got four good seats for the May 22, but there were far fewer options for three seats. Dynamic reconfiguration shouldn't be that hard but...this is Ticketmaster we're talking about.

    Maybe just by a double and single somewhere and then sit together. Don't think anyone would notice. Last game I had one couple 6-8' away from me one direction, and then the next nearest was at least 10' away another direction.

    Quakes sent an email on Sat AM that:
    • Your exclusive Season Ticket Holder window to select seats for our upcoming home matches will end Monday night. Log in to your Account Manager now and use your ticket credit to claim seats ahead of the general public.
    So i just checked account manager, and it appears that as of Monday AM, quite a few seats are available for the upcoming 3 games in May. It also isn’t clear to me, but it seems like I would be able to buy more than my 2 STH seats for any game. I just assumed I was limited to 2 per game. Has anyone tried ordering more than their STH # of seats?

    I think you can buy up to eight tickets. I bought more (four vs three).

    We had interlopers from (presumably) the cheap seats who tried to take over "covid closed" seats next to ours in the last game. The stayed for a while and then left. Then some other moved into the close seats in the row behind us.

    Both made my wife uncomfortable.

    That’s too bad that happened, but realize that in another month, we could be back sitting elbow to elbow!
    Not sure how I am going to feel about that. It still seems weird to be less than 6 ft from someone, even outside.

    I noticed many pods of people in my area not wearing their masks, (and not eating/drinking) and then one of the guys with the "Mask Up" sign comes up the aisle and the masks magically appear.

    I never realized before that I am eating and drinking non-stop during the game. During the first 2 games, Hubby and I consume 2 bags of kettle corn during a game + a drink + I have been getting an entree from the food truck. I only had my mask on maybe 10 minutes.
