Took my 3yr old to a few games this year. They had no problems with a few of my sons favorite snacks and drinks in a bag.
My little guy is usually is dozing out by the 65th minute for the later games so we head behind the goals near the parking garage, as its typically quiet over there. Just remember that the main stands are right on top of the field. I've had to block a few balls from him that are kicked out of play.
Flying solo this Friday since I'm heading there right from work.
Usually some players from the first team hanging around and any guys from the USL not in the 18 usually sit on the top row and are approachable for quick pictures and hellos. Hamlett, CJ Brown, and MdG are there more often than not as well. (Side note: early in the season, someone asked MdG if he was going to tarp of the bleachers near the parking garage, which was met with some laughs).
Thanks for the tips. And thats hilarious about de Grandpre
