More info in the e-mail but that was the biggie. Also more here

Also something about the City Blue Card presented by MasterCard. I guess they are the new sponsor instead of Ford? They’re not issuing everyone a credit card.
Just realized this is probably the free ticket giveaway promotion thingy.

Wait, how did you not realize that? lol. It seems they're switching it to one card? Looks like it's going to be like a credit card or something? Brad mentions it in the interview, how they made some changes based on feedback.

The use of singular card instead of cards threw me. But the question that generates the answer mentions Blue Cards, plural. Which I didn't notice at first. So it's just poor copy writing. I'm guessing they will be paper, like last year, but sponsored/branded with MasterCard. Whether the size of a credit card (easier to carry around) or bigger (harder to carry but evokes ref cards), IDK.

wait no - talking semantics here but
When will Members receive their Member boxes (including Blue Cards presented by Mastercard®)?
is like saying 'including calendars!') which is pluralized as 'you are all getting one'
but then they say
Make sure you keep an eye out for some awesome new things including your City Blue Card presented by Mastercard®!
which makes it sound like there is only one.
I think it's going to be the 'only one' option

Didn't they already said last year that members would receive multiple blue cards to spread the love of the game? Doubt we'd only get one per member. Even last year we were given two as a trial.

nono i think one and the way you give the ticket out will be different - maybe you input your card info or something and it's reusable? idk.

"allotment of City Blue Cards"

definitely multiple cards.. one card for each of 3-4 select games is my guess.

I've been duped by semantics!

For the game at RBA, are we now expecting our STs to be delivered before 26 Feb? How are they going to get city members through the gates?

I see all Yankee Stadium games (13) for the 2020 season.
Right, but the later ones aren't actionable yet (unless you paid in full). All my tickets were locked until recently, even though I've paid for nearly half the season.

also, how are they allocating seating at RBA? I know it’s not a big deal - everyone will have PLENTY of room for this game...
For prior early season CCL games at RBA they have only opened one side of the lower deck - I remember a game a few years ago against Vancouver where it was very quiet.

Every attendee gets their own section.
