The Ecuadorian national team will face off against Jamaica next month at Red Bull Arena. The cheapest seats are ~$61 (including fees)...no way I am trying to flip these seats.  If they do any groupon specials in a few weeks, I may pick some seats up then.

 

Hoping Taxi gets a call up for this one. Our next game isn't until 9 days later, plus he wouldn't have to travel for this game.

I find it odd that they just announced it.. they have less than a month to sell tickets, I figure they would want more time. Maybe it wont matter.

Ecuador games at GS/MetLife have sold 40,000+ tickets. Should have no problem selling out 25,000 at RBA on a Friday night. Now, traffic ...

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Ecuador is on a bit of a decline after missing the WC.  They have a new coach, and will probably field a lot of younger/unproven players as they prepare for Copa America.  I doubt that the big names will be called in (Antonio Valencia, Enner Valencia).  That plus a non-marquee team in Jamaica plus expensive tickets = I doubt it will sell out. But hey I've been wrong before.

Probably be a solid crowd but I don't see a high demand on the secondary market for this game either.

i remember the US-Ecuador friendly back in 2011. I think all but 2 sections in RBA wore yellow.

And the World Cup qualifying match vs the Ticos which we lost was a pro Costa Rica crowd (so I've heard).

 

Yea, Red Bull Arena isnt a good "home" venue for the USMNT. SMH.

i was at the US vs Ecuador friendly and I don't remember it selling out, which also makes me believe that Ecuador vs Jamaica won't sell out.

as expected, Ecuador's roster for Friday's game @ RBA is very underwhelming - lots of new faces, and no Toño Valencia.  Definitely out for this one - hoping there's a last minute Groupon for the USA vs Brasil instead

I'm at the point where I'm still annoyed with the USA debacle and I swore off wasting money on friendlies years ago so would have to be a ridiculous discount for me to even consider going. I'll be watching the game at home for free instead.

i want to see Tyler Adams flying into Neymar, cleanly winning the ball, and having Neymar roll around like a....baby.  I would pay to see that in person.

No need to have Adams to see that. All you need is a breeze of 5+ mph.

Last time I checked on-line, they were only selling in the lower deck and far side in the upper.
