    Default Are you planning to drop season tickets?

    Given the price increase, what will you do? Will you be dropping any of your season tickets?

    At this point, I am probably dropping 2 seats. I am about 90% certain. I have to speak to my rep though.

    The decision to drop my extra seats has been made. Those are not being renewed.

    There's needs to be a "downgrade" option in the poll...

    Be it going from 4-seats to 2... Or Dark Greys to Light... etc...

    Downgrading isn't as huge as dropping all your tickets - but for some of us with Reds or Dark Greys, dropping to Light Greys is a big sign the price increase / added games / MLS Cup is an issue...

    Plus, a mass exodus from the expensive seats will make selling new tickets harder... Moving a $450 a year supporter ticket is much easier than a $1100 dark grey...

    There is no value in having season tickets when I can buy seats whenever I want. I would end up saving money. TFC lives in a fantasy world!!

    Only MLSE can manage to take the goodwill and general enthusiasm of a fanbase and bleed it dry in four years.

    Will you drop any seats is the question.

    No point in asking "I'll keep it if I can get cheaper seats," as we have to decide before the relocation event.

    Relocation time and only if a seat is available during your slim relocation window. If it's not available you are on the hook for the money in your current seats. You will have already needed to make one or two of your 25% payments by the relocation window.

    That's perfect...

    Because I'm not 'dropping seats' but I am certainly considering 'dropping $$$' at relocation (depending on what I can get)...

    If the Club / Red / Dark Gray's have a large amount of people moving to the Light Gray's etc - it'll be tough for the reps to convince waiting-listers to shell out $3000-$2300 on tix as a new customer...

    Carts....

    Are you hoping your rep talks you out of it?

    No, but once I have spoken with him it will be a certainty either way.

    Edited my post and took out the option, because we need to decide before we know if we can downgrade.

    seat relocation will be interesting this year.

    If my buddy wants to buy my reds, I'll renew them. If he doesn't want them, I'll probably relocate them into the south (if possible). If there's nothing I terribly like, then I'll drop down to 2 seats.

    I will renew this year and look to relocate to cheaper seats. I expect there will be a lot of us doing this which means the cheaper seats will still be full but the dynamic of the sections will be different. (maybe better, maybe worse). Also it may be difficult for them to sell the more expensive seats which leaves us with a ton of empty seats ruining the atmosphere of the game.

    I have been able to tolerate the shitty performance of the team so far far due to the fact that the experience of going to a TFC game has been entertaining at least. Once the fun expereince stops and the team is still shitty.....it's all over and I don't see me ever coming back.

    Not exactly dropping my tickets, but looking to sell them on as I missed most of this season due to work and next year is only going to be busier.

    I don't want to give up the rights to my seats as one day I might actually be able to regularly attend again.

    That said, if anyone is interested in front row 111's PM me.

    Don't you have to put your deposit down before the relocation event? That would mean you have to keep all 4 tickets for the next year weather you relocate them or not. (or am I missing something in the process??)

    Parky - relocation is after renewal though, so you will be stuck with them for at least this season - regardless where they are in the stadium, no?

    I have chatted with the boss and I will likely drop my 2 red seats. Will be interesting to see a poll after Oct 15 "Did you drop season tickets?" to see if how many follow through after the initial anger passes

    I'm renewing, but will be active at relocation to drop down a price range...

    naw... if I put the 25% deposit down, and then move seats from an expensive area to a cheaper one, my account will be credited with the difference.

    I'm always going to keep my 4 seats, the question is just where will all 4 seats be located.


    this might make me unpopular (deal with it) but I think that $440 seats in the South End aren't too expensive for my blood.
    It's still like $21 bucks a game, and I can live with that quite comfortably. The $80 a game seats..... TFC isn't that good.

    I think Suds and I were just commenting because you mention dropping down to 2 seats...

    oh right.... I did say that. Well I mean I would drop down to 2 seats at a point that wouldn't cause a financial loss.

    I know it was Oldtimer that started the thread. Trying to cover your tracks eh, Parky?

    I was hoping to ditch all four of mine, but Anne is swaying towards keeping two.

    There will be cheaper seats available at relocation. Scalpers holding a dozen seats will drop some. At the end of the day, if they can't turn a profit (on "big" games or by consistently getting a markup), they'll dump some.

    But like so many others have mentioned, the high $ seats will be the first ones dropped.

    I'm thinking of dropping/ downgrading my seats in 121. I'm loathe to part with them as they're damn good seats but I just can't justify the $$$ when I have to give a number of them away.

    I'd like to downgrade, but think I'll wait until my rep tells me how it will be handled. I can see MLSE allowing people on the waiting list to fill the cheaper seats to leave the expensive seats filled once they have us on the hook.
