Wow, those are actually very good seats. They're not just sticking these people into the back corner of the stadium, they're trying to give them somewhere where they might actually enjoy the atmosphere.

What is the difference between the "Blue Card" vs Founding member offers we got for the 6.29 and 7.26 games?
Founding member offers were directly allocated to our accounts once we entered the code for our own use. They could be given to friends/family/coworkers or resold, etc.
The Blue card isn't directly in our account, as it is supposed to be given to another person (friend, family, rando) and they use the code to get tickets. I don't know if we can use the codes for our own account, has anyone tried? They may not be usable within a season ticket holder's account, only available to non-season ticket holding people. Someone else would have to clarify if that is possible or not.
Maybe there is no difference except one came as an email and the other came as a physically massive sized blue card.

At first I thought since it was called a "pilot", only a limited set of STHs should be getting them, but my rep told me they should be going out to all STHs and they might just be delayed because of their logistics vendor. He said maybe as late as next week. Just in case anyone else is wondering.

Also apparently my rep alone has gotten 3 calls about this just today so maybe the demand for these things is higher than one might think from the noisy negativity on social media and on here.

Or maybe people just want the pin lol

I'd like to point out my frustration with the ticket trade-in and upgrade program available to City Members. I've been trying to upgrade to premium seating for the Atlanta match and the NYCFC app shows all sections sold out. Meanwhile, if you take a trip over to Ticketmaster there are dozens of seats available. Maybe they're trying to sell those seats to people who haven't bought tickets yet but it's just another thing NYCFC is doing to piss of season ticket holders.

I missed the boat on so many of these pins too that I'm not even gonna try and catch up to collect. My grand kids will be shaking their fists at the heavens when they are grail on the occasion of our centenary.

But yeah it looks great and I'm a big fan of the pin designs overall.

Same exact thing I went through a few weeks ago for the Red Bull game and a week ago for the Atlanta game.

They're either very dumb or think we are.

Can someone explain why on the Yankees website it says postseason prices are x dollars and when you go on ticketmaster it's like twice as much?

So this just pissed me off.

1. How do you give such short notice for a family event?
2. It’s upstate. It’s impossible for me to get to from LI. The club has always ignored its LI & Queens fanbase. I thought this was a NYC team. But it feels more like I Westchester team that plays a little South in the Bronx. Can’t wait for a local team of my own one day QFC.

agree that there should have been notice a lot sooner for this event. not sure if they just came up with this suddenly or not? but where would you have such an even within the 5 boroughs? i don't think there is any facility that offers the same amount of space and number of activities.

at least it's in NY and not NJ. ha. would be nice though, if all such events were in the boroughs... if it's not possible, then it's not possible. but this is OUR CITY'S TEAM. should cater to the cityzens.. not upstate-azens..

The Bronx zoo has zip lines and climbing facilities for starters. Chelsea Piers does too. That’s just off the top of my head for 5 Boroughs. Want me to start naming in LI?

I brought this up on Twitter yesterday. I'm really disappointed in the club for the short notice on a lot of these events. I would think months of planning go into these things yet they only share them a week or so out. Weeknights are tough for most families but especially during the school year. My daughter has soccer practice and now I'm debating canceling (I'm coach) so I can take them to this for a couple hours.
