I put 8 questions for Sims and Lee. All of my questions were hard. The only took questions that are easy to answer to be vague.

The best question for Sims are ones that are only answered "Yes" or "No".

The drinking game for Q&A events with Sims includes a shot when he says "Cleveland".
I was in this as well and kind of figured going into it that it was going to be mostly bland, no real take-aways.

Regarding the 2022 kit, Sims did seem oddly excited about it, moreso that it was going to be something significant and as such, like LionNYC LionNYC I do think there is a decent possibility that it could end up being orange, at least to some material degree.

One thing that I don't believe I've heard before, but makes sense, is that Sims said every odd year (i.e., 2021), the new kit will be based on "city blue". So keep that in mind as we get close to 2023, 2025, etc. kits being released going forward.

Hmmmm, but isn't that what we already know? home vs away, where home is "city blue" and away is "whatever the floop we want"... I guess "every odd year" is another way of saying "every other year" in more specific terms

Yeah, looking at how the jerseys have shaken out, we do know that the primary has been "city blue". I think this is the first time we've heard that that is part of the club's requirements with that odd year kit. Or maybe it has been mentioned elsewhere by the club and I've missed it.

Maybe Brad wasn't sharp enough to notice the pattern so when someone pointed it out to him he was all excited and wanted to share.

Thanks. I need another f-word substitute.

hmmm, is it? I could have sworn we've heard in the past that the primary kit is 'city blue' and the away kit is different - wasn't there that interview with the kit guy a while back where they talk about it? that's what i remember it from, anyway (if it wasn't obvious by just sight...)

'floop' is my go-to for anything substitute!

Quite possibly, I don't remember. Like I said, I may have missed it, but this seemed to be the first time I've heard that "city blue" was a requirement for the primary kit.

I think you're right on this. Everyone who pays attention knows that some variant of light blue has been and always will be the most prominent color of the home kit, but I don't think that has ever been officially said before.

I think they spoke about it during one of the NYCFC At Home events with the Cooligans and they interviewed someone in the graphics team and he mentioned that odd years are city blue and even years are more creative when they work with adidas.

Picked up tickets to the May 15th game - the Ticketmaster experience is just awful. I literally could not complete it on mobile and had to purchase them on the desktop site. It took me 20 minutes to buy tickets. Yeeesh.

I couldn't get in at my allotted time this morning. Still got the seats I wanted, but I hate things not being on time...

As a non-STH flexible plan holder I was able to select seats today. Unlike the Cincinnatti game, I was able to select single seats. I was even allowed to take 1 seat from a grouping of four. I'm not entirely pleased, however, as the only reason I knew I would be able to get seats today is from this forum. I received no email, and no communication from a rep (which I received for the first game). It happens that my rep left the club shortly after he let me know about availability for the first game.

Als, I had to se iPhone Safari to add my ticket to Apple Wallet. Chrome for iOS could not handle it.

Thanks, I also was having trouble, including trying to do it from the NYCFC app (which seems to basically load a mini-browser of some kind into the app) and doesn’t seem to want to recognize the pop-up after your press the wallet button.

I thought there would be more advanced notice to STH’s on tickets based on the first game but sounds worse for folks on your plan. Honestly, at this point I look to the forum for what’s going on more than I do directly from the club

I wondering if the forum can confirm my understanding of what will/could be happening from the 2020 carry over now that YS is fully open. I believe from previous comments from the team, that while there was limited capacity games you could chose to go to the games. Once the stadium is fully open, then your account will be charged for the remaining games from that point on, but this policy would not apply to the RBA games.

So let's say you have $1,000 in your ticket bank, they will apply the remaining 7games at your normal ticket prices, and whatever is left over you can those use for Red Bull Arena Games and if there is an unforeseen 8 regular season home game that game would be charged. As a reminder the Yankees would have to fail to make the World Series for the team to host 8th game.

I am sure I can wait for the team Q&A email that will address this, with the 2022 pricing .

first, yankee stadium is not full capacity yet. it is 100% capacity in fully vaccinated sections. still only 33% capacity at unvaccinated sections.

second, ALL RBA games will be optional for 2021.

third, since there are still covid restrictions (as noted in point 1), those games are still optional at yankee stadium. As it stands, if the city reopens fully by July 1st, then those games at yankee stadium will be charged at the usual rate and you'll have the option to trade in and/or re-sell as we always have.

But yes, your understanding is otherwise correct. Regular season games at yankee stadium once all covid restrictions are lifted, will be charged as normal. any leftover money at the end of the season will be carried over into 2022.

edit: you also have the choice to have leftover money refunded to you instead of carried over into 2022 if you decide to cancel your membership.

Update: I was contacted by my new rep and told that letting me select one ticket was a mistake and they can't allow that, but because it was their error, they are comping me an extra voucher good for this game only and so I can get 2 seats for the price of one. I can't complain about that. So I've invited a friend and still going.
