Cascadia Away — Portland, July 18th & Seattle, August 1st
With our two most popular #CapsOnTour trips rapidly approaching, and with our Cascadia Cup fate very much in the balance, we are looking forward to two successful road trip to Portland and Seattle in the coming weeks. As these are our two most popular trips, we want to go over a few key points
Away Travel Policies
Anyone who travels with us is subject to these policies — no expections. This means that you and your friends and/or family members that are making the trip with you are held to the same standard. And ultimately, you are responsible for them. If anyone in the group fails to abide by these rules, travel privileges will be revoked, and funds allocated to future away trips forfeited. Basically, don’t be a dick, and you’ll be fine.
Tickets for both Portland and Seattle matches will be distributed via e-mail in the days before the match. It is imperative that your e-mail address in your Southsiders profile is accurate, as this is the e-mail address we will use for distribution.
We strongly encourage you to print off your tickets and bring the hard copy to the match. There is a chance the bar code can be read off your phone, but if it doesn’t work, it’s very tough to find a place to print your ticket at that time.
We will be in our usual spots for both stadiums (Providence Park – Sections 222 & 223, CenturyLink Field – Sections 300-301). These seating areas will be General Admission — that means that the seat info printed on your ticket is NOT the seat that you will be sitting (standing) in. The section on your tickets, however, will be correct. For the best seats, please show up to the stadium at least 90 minutes before kick-off and claim the best seats available.
If you see areas of the stands that are taped or blocked off, DO NOT MOVE OR INTERFERE WITH THESE AREAS. We have those spaces reserved for the drums, capos and other trip volunteers.
Furthermore, if you are a Southsider that made your own ticketing arrangements (i.e. you purchased through StubHub or the Timbers directly), and are not standing with us, DO NOT COME TO 222-223. There is a finite amount of space in Portland, and we simply DO NOT have room for you to come and join us. There will be Providence Park staff looking at tickets and sending you elsewhere.
You should expect to have flags in your way at one point or another during the match. While we don’t anticipate it happening often, you should expect to have a flag in your way during the course of play as well. Should there be any threats or inappropriate behaviours resulting from this, you can expect a chat from security, and the possibility of ejection from the section. We are all there to support the boys in blue and white, not fight each other.
For our match in Portland, we will be entering via Gate 5 of Providence Park, located in the Southeast Corner of the Stadium (On SW 20th st at Salmon St.) — Doors will open 90 minutes prior to kick-off. It is recommended that you arrive at least one hour prior to kickoff. Please be aware that there may be a holding period after the match for supporters as per MLS and home stadium rules and discretion.
Though we do not yet have all the details for the Seattle match, we expect the entry process to be similar to previous years. The NorthEast gate at CenturyLink will open 90 minutes prior to kick-off. Anyone with flags or banners should be there 90 minutes prior to kick-off. It is recommended that you arrive at least one hour prior to kickoff. Please be aware that there may be a holding period after the match for supporters as per MLS and home stadium rules and discretion.
If anyone has any questions at all, please e-mail Kyle Braun at email@example.com and we can get everything squared away.
Looking forward to seeing everyone down in America, and to completing the Three-Peat of the Cascadia Cup!
