Tailgate and Soccer Game - DC United vs. Columbus Crew Season Opener!

*** It's a great day for a tailgate and a soccer game!  See you there! ***

UPDATE #5: If you were unable to secure a spot for this event online, you have the option of "flying standby." There are usually 5 no-shows for this event, so you just might be able to get on board. Make sure to come early with exact cash.

UPDATE #4: Just a reminder, we'll be in lot 8 for tailgating, and I'll be the one with the red flag! Please account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays, and please arrive on time!

UPDATE #3: I was able to secure for us a few more spots in the same section. Get them while you can!

UPDATE #2: The early-bird price has ended and the ticket price is now $50. Looking forward to seeing you there!

UPDATE #1: There are 9 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $40 to $50 when the early bird spots are gone or before Sat. Mar. 1st (whichever comes first). To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Sun. Feb. 23rd. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot. I hope to see you there!

Let's get together for a tailgate and a soccer game!

I've made special arrangements with DC United and secured a block of seats for us for the season opener against Columbus Crew! Before the game, they've given us a large tented area in lot 8, right next to the stadium, for our group only.

We'll start off tailgating at 5pm before the game with hot dogs and burgers included! Don't forget to account for Metro and traffic delays. Cornhole games, soccer tennis games, live entertainment (DJ) will also be available for us to enjoy. Please bring your own beverages, any side items, or anything else you'd like to grill... alcohol is allowed! At 6:30pm, we'll head into the stadium for an exciting soccer match in our Corner seats.

Our seats normally cost $34 (fees included) each (without the food, grill, reserved tent area, cornhole games, live entertainment, etc.). We've got an early bird special for this package of $40! The first 35 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Sat. Mar. 1st (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, it will go up to $50.

Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment. When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment.

Secure your slot by rsvp'ing yes AND making payment! Come join us as we spend a great day tailgating and enjoying a live soccer match with other members from our group!

Metro and Parking

The closest Metro is Stadium Armory (Orange / Blue lines). I suggest Metro / cabbing if you can. I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage. Parking at the stadium is $15.

Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):

Please follow the instructions below for making payment (if payment by smartphone doesn't work, please try your computer). Payment at the door will be permitted only should the event not sell out. Most of our events do sell out, so we recommend you secure your spot online early. If you make payment for less than the current ticketed price without prior correspondence, your RSVP will be removed.

1. Select "Yes" under "Will you attend?"

2. Enter the number of guests coming and click "Finish RSVP"

3. Click "Pay Now" at the top of the event posting near the ticket price per person

4. Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button

5. If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"

6. If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal

Event Check-in

We will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup. When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.

Refund Policy & Ticket Resell

Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled. Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale. Work out payment between yourselves, and send the organizer an email through their Meetup profile (do not comment in the comment box) letting us know the full name and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot. Thanks for understanding. =)

    Tailgate was fun, so are sporting events - the game itself was a bit boring.

    Stuck on a broken blue line train right beside Arlington cemetery. Hope no one is coming from Alexandria in blue line. Knew I should have gotten off for yellow transfer, but it was the same amount of time. Dammit!!!

    • Jeff

      East bound orange and blue line trains are held up at L'Enfant Plaza for those connecting from yellow or green lines. I've been waiting here for twenty minutes and there hasn't been a train.

    Traveling from Ashburn and not very familiar with the Metro system... would anyone like to meet at the Courthouse Metro and ride with me from there?

    March 4, 2014

    • David

      Hey Kim, my buddy is from Ashburn and will be joining me to the event. It's definitely more vehicle friendly if you park along the outer orange line stations such as Vienna, Dunn Loring, or East Falls Church. If you need help, we could meetup with you. Just let me know!

      March 6, 2014

    • Ken

      Kim, I plan on taking the metro from Vienna as well. We can meet there with the others if you like.

  • Fabio

    @J.T.: i bought the ticket for the game same days ago by myself... But i'd like to join you and the others to have a good time before the game. Is it possibile just paying only for the tailgate event?

    March 6, 2014

    • J.T.

      Unfortunately since I secured it as a group package, I'm unable to split the cost of the event. Fabio, I posted this event 5 weeks ago!

      March 6, 2014

    • Fabio

      I know but i had the ticket from a friend practically for free! ;) it would be for another event! ;)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
