What's the procedure for tickets/seats for an MLS Cup for home STH?

I think the only thing we know is the STH agreement says we're not guaranteed tickets. Beyond that, I think (but do not claim to know) the home team has discretion as to how to allocate however many seats it is allowed after MLS and league partners take their share.

MLS Cup is November 10, 2019

Princeton vs. Dartmouth at Yankee Stadium is November 9, 2019

I guess there will be a conspiracy that will prevent us from hosting MLS Cup this year.
Either the college football game will be moved, or we're not hosting MLS Cup at Yankee Stadium if we earn the right to host. Looking at what else is in the New York City market that day, November 10...

Giants at Jets - 1 PM MetLife
Florida Panthers at New York Rangers - 1 PM MSG

NBA schedule has not been released yet.

Right. I have to think that with 12-15,000 season tickets and a 48,000 seat stadium, we will all get seats to the game, just maybe not the ones we usually get.

And not at prices we are interested in paying...

I would march on Orangeburg if I was t guaranteed my exact seats for an MLS cup match.

A reminder that both of our next matches:

Saturday, August 3 at RSL at 10 PM
Thursday, August 8 vs. Houston at 7 PM

Are only on Fox Sports Go because of Yankee coverage. SHAME!

The remaining schedule is kind of barbell shaped, with 2 tough games in the next 3 RSL(A)-HOU(H)-ATL(A), a very tough final 4 FCD(A)-ATL(H)-NER(A)-PHI(A), and 7 very winnable games in the middle, of which 5 are at home.

Three points in the next 3 games would be acceptable not worth getting upset about., even with a loss in Atlanta. 4 is fine. 5 is good. 6 is excellent, (even with a loss in Atlanta).

idk, going in with a "some tough opponents so I'll lower my expectations" vibe isn't good imo. Set the bar high. For me? anything under 5 points (W-D-D) is unnacceptable. RSL is winnable. Houston is extremely winnable. ATL, with the way they've been playing recently, is very winnable. I can see us getting at least 5 points from this stretch.

So can I. I can see getting even more. We're that good right now. But that is not the same as thinking that getting 3 is a disaster. Visiting teams in Rio Tinto average 0.7 PPG. That's the same as teams who come to Yankee Stadium. Visitors to MB average 0.5 PPG. It's silly to pretend that doesn't matter. 538 gives NYC a 50% chance or better to win in 9 of their remaining 14 games, including 2 away games. That's astonishingly good. Even better, they say NYC has a 50% or better chance of getting at least a point in 13 of the remaining 14. That's beyond astonishing. But they say the odds of winning at RSL are 30% and Atlanta is 26%. Those are the 2 lowest. All I'm saying is don't get upset if NYC loses its 2 hardest remaining games. It's tough having them come up as 2 of the next 3 but that's the schedule.

Atlanta is 8-0-1 in their last 9 Home games. They haven't lost at home since April 20. We can break that streak. We probably have the best shot of anyone. But I'm not going to get worked up if we don't, and I don't think that Atlanta is an easy get at home because they have lost 6 straight away games.

Fair enough, I'll agree with you on that front. Still would prefer to set the bar high though!

LOL the Astros just got Greinke while it looks like the Yankees make no big deals.



Highly unlikely the Yankees make it past the AL championship series, which means they are done by October 20 which probably means the only possible conflict is in the MLS playoff first round, which hopefully we skip. I think adam adam posted something similar recently, but this trade news makes it all the more worth noting.
