    I created a Facebook page yesterday and invited my friends. I'm at 27 people already for the $19 tickets. Probably half have never been to a game before.
    Can't wait!

    The ones who aren't soccer fans are confused by just what exactly the CCL is. I don't understand what's so confusing. The friends/family I've asked all seem pretty indifferent to the game.

    I've already blasted an email to all my friends and family who follow footy of any kind. I was able to get a group of 14 people together for the CMNT games at BMO.

    My goal for this game is to try and get 20 friends and family out.

    Having a bunch of people coming from work. Going to buy 15 tickets, and hope I sell them all. Already about 8 confirmed, just gotta find out what price I can get, and I may end up bringing more then my 15.

    Im getting the Ryerson Engineers Student Society involved. We made it out to the TFC vs Red Bulls game last year. I think about 20 people showed up and that was with tickets around 30 bucks. If they get the cheaper ones itll definately be more people. Im also going to bring out some neighbourhood friends and the girlfriend and such. Going to be an awesome game

    Lucky you, the journalism students were only offered tickets for 59 dollar!

    I asked my brother. I'm getting him tickets with me and my dad.
    He's coming with his wife and 5 year old daughter and 8 year old son. He wasn't gonna come if it was at BMO, cuz he'd freeze and his kids would want out of there immediately.
    My GF may come too if she's in town that day -- she wouldn't set foot in a freezing BMO Field in a million years. She usually only comes to summer games.

    I'm going with my buddy that shares seasons tickets with me, and I've also convinced several others to join us including my Puckhead brothers and Eurosnob friends. I've got about 10 people coming so far.

    I would bring my son as well but he's only 3 weeks old.

    26 so far, aiming for 50

    I'm aiming for sections 126-128 to keep close to the SGs, but not to take up the space (I'll have some kids, and a lot of +1s in my group) while ensuring that I (and the other proper supporters in my group) can still yell and stand

    Great thread, maybe the RPB Facebook page can create an event and leave it open for all members to invite friends. I'd forward it to my whole friends list....

    In response to the thread, all my friends are currently TFC fans and will already be in attendance. I'll be reaching out to my brother and his buddies for support

    i'll be sitting with the poeple I usually attend games with.
    but I have asked my friends if they wanted me to pick up seats for them.
    so far my dad has asked for a pair. he attended a game in year one, but our seats were in 110, and he didnt quite get the whole standing thing.
    so i'll try to get him a pair in 200 level.
    With the fair pricing, this is a pretty easy sell. However, many people I have mentioned it to didn't even know this game was happening. Once word gets out I think tix will go quickly.

    Up to 39 now. Will probably buy 50 tomorrow, because all of those people have friends. 39 in two days. Half have been to 1 game or less before!

    Up to 14 in my group so only another 6 to hit my goal.

    With the pricing ranges it's easier to get commitments from people. Some very good seats at reasonable rates.

    Making a father son/big brother even out of this game,

    I look at it like this, im going to buy one of those group packages, and give the tickets out to the kids for free.
    130 bucks, and your doing something great for the community

    Confirmed 33, aiming for 50

    20 confirmed. People I had no faith in have been jumping at the tickets. I'm impressed.
