Cheer on the Whitecaps!!!

Nothing rivals the electricity of a live soccer match!!! 


Join ESV to cheer on the Vancouver Whitecaps as they take on The Real Salt Lake on September 28th at 4p.m.
_______________________________________________________

Meeting time and place:

We will meet up at 3pm at Doolin's Irish Pub, home of the Vancouver Whitecaps supporters club: The South Siders!  We will leave with them when they leave for the game. ( I am guessing around 3:15) We will walk with them a couple of short blocks to BC Place where we will pick up our tickets and find our seats for the match against the Real Salt Lake.

Early:
Pre-match fun: I will be going early to Doolin's to make sure that everyone has somewhere to sit by the actual meetup time of 3pm.  I have decided to go at noon and will probably order lunch around 12:45.  Anyone is welcome to join us early.  Your seat is reserved from noon until three :)

Late:  
We have had a month to plan however, if it should happen that you cannot meet up with us, I will be at the will call / main gate area in a long gray sweater, either limping or on crutches with your tickets for entry at approximately 3:40 pm (or three minutes after the arrival of the "fan parade, if it has not arrived yet (you'll hear us coming)). 

FYI [[expected theatre/venue pricing food/drinks/souveniers:
average "meal"10-12 dollars/ endless popcorn @10$/Drinks @7-8$/ Whitecaps Scarf 30$/ Jersey style t shirt 35$/Small Flags 10$
Better Deal:  SouthSiders membership 30$ comes with scarf, pin, patch, discount card for businesses : usually available at Doolin's on match days before the game :)


____________________________________________________________

 Group ticket price: $$30.00 for $48.00 seats!!! 
(the system charges 1.20 to process the payment) 

Payment deadline Sept 13

 (NO EXCEPTIONS! If payment does not match your rsvp by sept 13th at 8 am you will be removed from the attending list along with any unpaid guests. We want good seats and everyone wants to be part of the group discount.)

Please consider your liability to the group purchase and only rsvp if you are serious. Refunds are not available after the group ticket purchase date of September 13


By maintaining a yes rsvp you agree to be completely responsible for yourself and any expenses or personal injury. You agree to hold harmless ESV and all volunteers.

    Well, I guess we can't claim to be a good luck charm anymore, but at least nobody tried to burn down the stadium this time. :)

      September 28, 2013

  • Tammy S

    If you are planning to show up at three, 2:59 is recommended. Craig thinks they leave earlier than I do. I was thinking three fifteen but he says more like three. Better safe than sorry :)

    September 28, 2013

      The meeting place is Doolin's because that's where the south siders generally walk from

      September 27, 2013

    • Tammy S

      I am going early to make sure everyone had a seat by 3pm, so I decided to have lunch there and open it up to anyone who wanted to join me or come anywhere in between. I am there for noon (barring traffic battles) :) see you all tomorrow :)

    Hey!
    My girlfriend and I can't make it to Doolins, but we want to meet up with you guys outside the stadium. How are you going to divide the tickets? Can we get them from Will-call?
    Thanks

    September 26, 2013

    • Tammy S

      Matthew, I am the only one who can pick them up. I'm sorry, with for thousand members, it seemed wisest. For anyone who cannot make the 3pm meet up time, I will be outside the main doors closer to the will call ticket area IN A LONG GRAY SWEATER (and Whitecaps scarf), either limping or loathing crutches at *3:40pm . »»I have reserved seats on a busy day at the meet up location, so of you cannot meet the group at 3pm and walk over with the SouthSiders to will call, please let me know so i don't fight to hold you a seat :) *if the estimated walking over time is later, you will likely hear us coming (and i will post it here on this event board).

      Okay great! We'll meet you outside the Will-call box office at 3:40. Can you text me your number just in case :[masked] . Thanks again, see you tomorrow.

  • Tammy S

    Ok... Here are the details so far
    bad news, good news and great news!

    The bad... Our group jumped to a bigger number near the end and the only section they had left for this hot game already, was in 219... On the wrong end.
    I communicated this was heartbreaking ( got your back Kat... lol), and my wonderful booking coordinator put her thinking toque on.
    _______________

    The good... We spent a good half hour on the phone. I had to make a judgment call. All together in 219 or in chunks within yelping distance of each other in 246/248 (usual section but 20 rows closer to the pitch (field)). I thought it was a bit of a let down to spend the warm up with the south siders, march over with them, cheering, and then go sit at the opposite end, so ...

    September 13, 2013

    • Abimael A.

      Tammy, I can't make it to Doolin's unfortunately. you guys have fun! anyway, where can I meet you before entering to the game for the ticket?

    »The meet up time is 3pm. seats are reserved so no one stands. Hopefully we will have some time to socialize before the match :)

    »We plan to be walking a couple of short blocks with the Vancouver Whitecaps support club called the SouthSiders at approximately 3:30 to will call to pick up our tickets.
    »After the soccer match is over we will part company. :)

    Ok, so I have RSVP'd yes as I want to come and experience my FIRST football match. Yes, I will be the person constantly asking questions about the rules!
    However, I really can't figure out how I pay and secure my ticket...and the dead line is tomorrow morning! Please help!

    • Ian

      Hey Danielle. You should see a link to pay above beside where it says price: 31.20, which is just under the date and location. If you still don't see it, try clicking on this link: http://www.meetup.com...­ .

      From there it should be pretty straight forward. If you don't have a paypal account you will have the option of being able to pay by debit or credit. Please let me know if you have any problems.

    Arigh, so I won't be bringing any guests w/ me since all my friends are either working or can't afford to go, but I did pay for myself, so that's all done. Also, are we still meeting up at Doolins before the game? :)

    September 7, 2013

      No worries Kat. Definitely doing Doolin's!!! :) I will figure put a time soon for the seat warmers, table savers and early birds for a late lunch :)

    Hi everyone. I'll have just arrived in Vancouver on the 28th so this'll be my first meet-up. I've been following the Whitecaps from afar since they joined MLS so I can't wait to actually get to a game.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    Pls note time change: For those who joined me before, this match starts thirty minutes earlier at 4pm so we will be meeting by three. We will meet up at 3pm -details to follow ( an earlier meet up time to join the pregame festivities at Doolin's and join the Southsiders March to BC place is being considered.  Their energy as a supporters club is unrivalled and the fun and excitement is infectious!! And if we manage to get a table it could be very unique fun. I will see howany chairs they would let me hold if i go down there early. Any other potential early pre match chair warmers to help hold spots? I was thinking of going for a late lunch? Thoughts? Post below. )
