Have I mentioned that I bought season tickets for the Vancouver Whitecaps inaugural season in Major League Soccer? Somebody also kindly bought me a membership in the Whitecap’s fan club, the Southsiders, for my birthday.
Because I’ve been traveling a lot this spring, I’ve only been able to get to one of the first six home games. And, unfortunately, I’ll be in Toronto tomorrow night when the Whitecaps play Toronto FC as part of, ahem, the Nutrilite Canadian Championship, a mid-season tournament featuring four Canadian teams. I am Fail Fan.
I have two tickets available for tomorrow night’s game, which starts at 7:00pm at Empire Field. They’re row Z, section 224. That’s about midway up, roughly parallel to the 18-yard line on the stadium’s west side. The seats are under cover, should it be raining. I’ve added their location to this too-small map of the stadium:
The seats are directly above a walkway, which means there’s nobody in front of you. That’s great, though there is a railing in front of you. This isn’t a problem for adults who can enjoy a good view over it, but may present an obstruction to little people. My nephews apparently didn’t mind, because they were free to stand up and weren’t intimidated by people standing all around them.
Also, the seats are on the aisle, so if you put the shorter person in the aisle seat, they have a decent view around the railing. Here’s a view from this seat. The railing is out of frame, to the viewer’s right. Cliquer pour agrandir:
I’m selling them for what I paid, $100, or (considering the Canucks are playing tomorrow night and it’s short notice) the best offer I receive in the next, say, eight hours.
