    This will be The Town FC’s home opener and one of three home games played at PayPal Park this season. :)

    For a second there I was confused by the stylistic similarities between Austin's crest and this (much superior) one:

    Apparently, the time for this game is now 7 PM, not 3 PM. I first saw the 7 PM time on the webcast on youtube, then I confirmed it on MLS Season Pass and the Town FC, Earthquakes and Ticketmaster websites.

    I couldn't find any time change announcement on the internet nor have I received any notification from the Quakes.

    Crazy if The Town FC ends up outdrawing the first team for a game. I don’t think that has ever happened in the first few years.

    I'm actually quite surprised, and a bit skeptical, about the 5k number. Where are these people coming from? Quakes II typically got what, a few hundred attendees? Only thing I can figure out is that it's "The Town" season ticket holders?

    And 80% of them won't physically show up for this game in San Jose. But attendance is always "tickets sold/distributed" not "butts in seats" so that doesn't matter. They'll get to claim a big number.

    True though if they have anywhere near 5k season ticket holders I’d be impressed. I don’t know what the price is but maybe if it’s really low and they sold a bunch to youth soccer families and stuff. And if cost is low there’s little “waste of money” to not show up for games.

    Get people in for $1, then have them spend $25 for parking, $18 for a beer, $20 on food......

    So there you go. What about season tickets? $10?

    Not sure the math works out on that unless individual game tickets are not normally $1, or it includes parking or VIP seats or something.

    Have you ever heard of a doorbuster deal? A loss leader?

    Apparently one truck driver is bringing 100 people to PPP?

    Not sure that you understood my point. If single season tickets are $1, why would anyone pay $287.74 for season tickets unless, as I wrote, season tickets includes parking, premium seats, or other perks. Of if $1 tickets are for this 1st game only.

    The $1 tickets are for only the three games at PayPal Park.

    OK, that answers my question then, at least partially. If "other" games were say $20, and there are 10 other games, the season ticket number starts to get close to being worth it. But there must be other perks?

    BTW seems like mlssoccer has The Town FC mixed up with some other team. :facepalm
