    Any of my fellow Westchester peeps driving to this game? I can get to RBA with ease from work, but I have no idea whatsoever of how I would get home. Happy to pay for gas and tolls of anyone who could drive me anywhere in the greater lower Westchester area (the closer to Larchmont train...

    I’m not smart enough to figure out how to get these for free. Thanks NYCFC!

    2020 Season Ticket Thread

    The amount was different depending on the cost of your tickets. They told me they looked at prior year's and determined the average number of times STHs used the ticket swap, then gave founding members enough credit to cover that amount of swaps for their particular ticket price. I was told it...

    They started every founding member off with a credit equal to 4-5 games worth of up charges last year. Hoping they do it again.

    2020 Season Ticket Thread

    Any founding members have any idea if we will be getting trade-in credits this year? For those who don’t know, founding members get founding member price credit when you return tickets, but have to pay city member prices for new tickets. In my case, the spread is $9 so the “free trade-in”...

    And player values will change -- it's not clear if you can go over budget if a player rises and you keep them. I'm in regardless, though.

    The only source for this is the Sun and the reporting doesn't mention a length of contract -- seems awfully large (even lumped in with stadium naming rights) unless it's for 20 years. The largest current US naming rights deal for a stadium is Met Life, which is $16mm per year. MLS stadium...

    I get what your saying, but maybe I didn’t communicate exactly what I meant to communicate. I didn’t mean don’t protest if you don’t think it will work right away — that is depressing. But who are they actually protesting against, whose behavior are they trying to change and in what way would...

    A boycott's purpose is to change behavior. What behavior will the boycotters be trying to change here? Will this boycott change CONCACAF's behavior? Doubt it. Will it make NYCFC's desire for a stadium any more urgent? Probably not possible. So in a best-case scenario, what do the organizers...

    I mean, if all you ever do in NJ is drive south on 95, of course you're going to think that.

    This is sad to have to write for a home game, but the club should host a watch party in midtown.

    I stand corrected! We’ll see how long Fanatics can stand however much they must be losing. That is some kind of shitty retail space for what they must be paying.

    I don’t think that’s a permanent store. I think just a pop-up until the landlord finds a permanent tenant.

    Right -- my point is, as the article makes clear -- it's not local pols, as in the stadium neighborhood. The money is finding itself somewhere else, which is something hyperlocal involvement should, could, might prevent.

    I stand corrected -- apologies Gotham Gator. I hope he's trying to anchor any negotiation at a very high number, because that figure is quite silly.
