The Empire Supporters Club will travel for the first time to the New Boro on Saturday, September 21st to support Metro away to New England. This final match of the season, a now traditional late season fixture, could be a massive encounter as Metro will no doubt be in the hunt for points to put them in the best possible playoff position, or perhaps, to lay claim to the Supporters Shield, while New England may be holding on to a playoff berth by a single thread. Enter the Metro... Consider the following points: -Metro have offered to stock the bus with snacks and drink in return for the ESC meeting Metromembership goals. -New England have offered us a proper away end behind the south goal. Hats off, perennial strugglers! -ESC members signing on to this trip (along with those who traveled to RFK in May) will have first shot at the trip to MLS Cup 2002 back at the New Boro in October. New England v Metro: The New Boro Saturday, September 21st Depart NW corner of W. 28th Street & 7th Avenue, Manhattan at 1:30pm with 2nd pick-up at Giants Stadium Park & Ride Lot (in Lots 9 & 11) at 2:00pm. Kickoff 7:30pm; return immediately after. Cost (Bus and Match Ticket) $35.00 ESC members paying by August 17th. $45.00 ESC members paying after August 17th. $60.00 non-members Sign up now via PayPal.com (payable to firstname.lastname@example.org) or at home matches starting with next Wednesday v Columbus. So, then ask yourself, why do you support Metro if not to feel the satisfaction of the acknowledgment of Metro players as they walk off after taking the full three points from New England? If you've never traveled to support Metro away, now is the time to step up and be counted. Please do not reply to this thread with anything other than pledges to travel or testimonials from road vets.
