    Between the fact that they have thousands of seats to sell, time of year (it's going to be cold/blustery or worse) and the likelihood of high prices .. I feel confident that absolutely every non SSH who wants to go to a playoff game will be able to go.

    I suspect it'll be $100 or more a seat, and will give a lot of people pause.

    Itll be interesting to see if they price themselves out of a full house

    dependent on a ton of things. The dates it could conceivably be are 28th,29th, 31st, 1st, 6th, 7th.

    You know, I hope they don't go up against the Jays. The really interesting question that will be answered is whether Toronto FC can draw the casual fan to an outdoor playoff game in October if the weather is less than ideal.

    Two sides can be easily argued.

    1) It would be a packed house. An event for the casual fan and what the die hard lives for… MLS Success.

    2) It would be like New England or a CONCACAF game. A non-event for the casual fan if it was bad weather or inconvenient to get to. MLS Playoffs? Is Beckham still playing?

    Not going up against the Jays would definitively determine what level of support exists for TFC within the casual Toronto Sports Market.

    Playoff dates:
    October 28 or 29 (if we finish 3rd or 4th, game at home, 5th or 6th on road)
    November 1 (away game if we finish 2nd, Home game if we finish 3-6th)
    November 8 (home game if we finish 2nd, away game if we finish 3-6th)

    One of my colleagues also mentioned that the raptors have their opening game on the 28th. If we finish 3rd/4th and have a home game, I'd imagine MLSE petitioning the league for the game to be on the 29th. TFC/Jays/Raptors all on the same night seems ridiculous.

    Yeh the 28th would be a World Series game at the AL team ie Blue Jays and the Raptors season opener, so MLSE, TFC and MLS Wouod move stupid not to move such a gsme back a night.

    I would hope they don't overprice the tickets. Ok, some people will pay more as they are "playoffs" and its the first time. But a half full stadium isn't going to be the "12th man" that TFC need on the field - they NEED to have a full house of screaming insane TFC fans packed into the corners of the stadium.

    Let's hope they are sensible about prices on this occasion.

    No chance whatsoever. That's not the primary concern.

    What they "need" is to price them high for non SSH, because they "need" to show SSH that there is value in being an SSH.

    It's a do loop that'll lead to 15000 being there, once you factor in weather etc.

    Best of luck! No such lofty reason for me ... I'm not renewing because I spend too many of my weekends out of Toronto and scheduling my life around TFC home games has been a headache for the last few years. I'll still go to a decent number of games, though.

    Seconded. I'm in Montreal that weekend to see some friends at Mcgill and I'd hate to have to cut it short and do that six hour bus back sunday morning to watch us.

    I think we'll get the 29th if we host a wild card. They'd be huge dicks not to give it to us.

    It has everything to do with what the TV networks in the USA want to do, and nothing to do with what else is happening in Toronto that day, or who has the largest genitalia.

    I partially agree, but I think it's lessened for mid week wild card games where to be honest it's six one half a dozen of the other.

    Having a World Series game 1, a basketball home opener and a MLS playoff game on the same night would be painful for the city's gridlock. I'm sure its already on the radar and the league would help us out if that lined up.

    I disagree. Not sure how it's much different from when there's been a sold-out Blue Jays game, a sold-out concert at ACC, and a full stadium at BMO Field - which has happened before.

    It will come down to which timeslots have the biggest potential US TV audience, and which game will attract the most viewers. As there is no baseball on Thursday October 28, I suspect the biggest match-ups will be on that day. What might work in our favour, is that Bradley and Altidore might get more TV interest than Columbus Crew or Sporting Kansas. Though if Montreal plays Toronto, I'd think Wednesday.

    In this case, no it does not. All knockout games are being broadcast by UniMas. They will have two games on Wednesday, two on Thursday. They don't really care which teams are on which day, it's just gonna be an East matchup at 7/8 PM, followed by a West game.

    If TFC did end up having to deal with a World Series game 1 and NBA season opener in their city on the same day, they would obviously be given priority to have their game on Thursday. Nothing to worry about.

    Just logged into my account manager, invoice for Playoffs and 2016 Renewal has been posted. Prices have gone up significantly. My two in 111 went from about ~240 to ~320. First payment for payment plan is due November 6th.

    Also, it appears we only have until October 22nd to secure the playoff tickets! "Due Date 22 October 2015"

    So can we call this tied selling? Although I guess you can pay for just the playoff seats since they are a separate invoice. But yeah, the email still makes it sound like you need to do both.

    My seat in 111 went from 228 to 323. Playoff tickets are $40 each. I guess they do want an empty stadium for the playoffs.

    Wow that's quite the jump....they looking to see even more empty seats next year? With the plentiful availability of seats for every game from different outlets I really wonder how they could have the nerve to do that...just because they make the playoffs once.

    Well, there's hope then. Though it would only be because of pressure from TSN. I think you give them all too much credit for actually giving a shit about the impact on the city!
