The grass behind the goal near the South Ward always dies by the end of the season. It's not a great look. To replace it with turf is just fine for me. Focus their energy on the playing field. Who cares about the sides. By mid-summer the color of the grass will be rich and full, matching the color of the turf and nobody will notice.

Shield banners are gone and are going to be in a new smaller form and have been moved to a new spot too, right above the suites on the signage between BWP's 99 and the Provident bank suite lounge logo.

There are new red tarps on sections 205/206 and 213/114

We also got pyro for after goals that looks like it could be permanent. They kept asking about it in the email surveys so fans probably kept voting on it.

Probably to mask our pitiful attendance

215 - 219 are also closed, in addition to the tarps covering all of 214. 220 has the handful of SJ supporters

those tarped sections on the player bench side should be converted into concession areas/party decks. the tarped section closest to ESC and VA should be designated as an Empanada deck along with beer carts. 


That's genius actually... Things like that make a difference they did something similar at the now called Hard Rock stadium in Miami for footie matches..
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

More ad space. It was basically a Facebook update. Not content improvement, just more ads.

FWIW, they made it twice as wide, but didn't increase the height, so there is no aspect ratio that would allow for "full screen."    The poitn was to have info on the sides.   How much of that info is info and how much is ad space is another matter.

During the Champions League match they had the team lineups on each side of the screen, also showing yellow cards. I thought that was great. Did not see that at all during Saturday's game.

So, $20 now? How much last year?
Last time I parked, it was $10.

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

$15 at the parking deck by the path. It's been $10 since RBA opened. Not sure about anywhere else. Also now that all the condo's have filled in, traffic getting out has gotten worse because we now have residents trying to get in.

Where?  I paid the usual $15 in Lot C.   Life Hack; if you use the LAZ parking app  they don't always know its a game day and only charge $9
