How come no one bitches that the USMNT is playing in a baseball stadium? we get shit thrown on us all the time and the USMNT goes and plays in a baseball stadium. with all the SSS stadiums in the country, they pick a baseball one...

guess when St Louis gets their SSS built, it'll be there.
It took me a minute to realize the horizontal cable running the length of the field was the foul ball netting wire.... followed by a WTF?!?!

NYCFC plays at YS out of necessity. USSoccer has the pick of the country and goes with a baseball park why???

exactly my thoughts. only thing I can think of is that St Louis is apparently a rich soccer area so they wanted to play there. other reason may be that there aren't any SSS in the country that had large enough capacity for the expected attendance.

Feel sorry for those at the match - Pulisic and McKennie went home and Pomykal is in the doghouse for tossing Zardes under the bus.

I'll give you two guesses but you're only going to need one.

What were the prices for the tix? When they play in the NY/NJ region, they jack the prices up and then wonder why the fans don’t fill out the stadium. Elsewhere in the country, the tix prices are less and they get better turnout. Their venue selection process & tix pricing is deeply flawed - I don’t expect we’ll get another WCQ match again for a while, at least not a meaningful one.

I’m starting to think that the USMNProgram deserves to loose. I feel bad for the USMNTeam. Maybe losing is what we get for the organization holding a match in a baseball stadium and the head coach hiring is due to nepotism.
