    Re: Gold Cup Final

    Anyone been to a US vs Mexico game in LA? I assume we will be out numbered etc but I am pondering bringing my wife and friends along. Wanted to know what people thought of the idea (may or may not sit in the supporters section)

    I am not sitting in the supporters section. But I used US soccer's code to buy tickets from Ticketmaster, so I'd hope that if Mexican fans actually bought those tickets, they'd at least be sane Mexican fans. We'll just find out.

    Thought you were planning on sitting with the US supporters?

    In every game except this one because I am going with a group of people to this game who didn't want to sit there.

    I would think if there were ever a game to sit among US fans... US-Mexico in LA would be it...

    The hostility in America is overstated. Lots of good family people go to the games to support Mehico.

    Course. Ran into virtually no problems outside of some good-natured taunting.

    Obviously you're going to have a higher % of d!ckheads in Pasadena than you would in Boston or something, but it's nothing that would preclude me from sitting somewhere other than the designated USA section. Azteca, Saprissa, etc. definitely. Here, not so much.

    Technically it should be a US section, as it was sold through US soccer, but who knows. I might try and sneak in the supporters section.

    I thought the Glendale one was worse, thats why US Soccer hasn't come back to AZ. Oh well, probably just depends on what each person saw.

    Hopefully there won't be any Dodgers fans at the game.

    Re: Gold Cup Final

    I've been to four US-Mexico games, and this is the only one where I didn't have any problems.

    In Houston, Columbus, and Chicago, it had a very hostile feel towards it. In all three cities, I was covered in beer that was thrown by Mexican fans from above after goals. I own one of the BAF's, and it was covered in beer that was thrown at it after the Gold Cup final in Chicago.

    In Houston, I watched Mexican fans fight each other after the game, and three El Tri fans jump a US fan in the parking lot. Two Mexican fans were also shot after this game, after throwing objects at a passing car, whose driver got out and shot at them.

    In Columbus, there were multiple " almost " fights before and after the game that I saw.

    I'm expecting the worst in Pasadena if it is indeed a US-Mexico final, especially when the US wins.

    Hmmm, might be trying to sneak into the supporter section.

    Probably the best if you do, don't know how though because if the section is full (which it will be) the seats are assigned.

    Sub. I'm gonna do my best to make this game (should the US be in it) but because I just started my new job, I have to take care of some other expenses. And also, the Spain game I have made the first priority.

    Yes, no doubt.

    Spain first priority? A potential US / Mexico Gold Cup Final with a Fifa Confed Cup berth on the line should be the priority!
