Do we know the plausible dates for the play off game?
I need ot make sure i have the day off or get it off
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.
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.
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.
Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!
This is the playoff pussplop tickets thread but because of them tying them into renewals we have the snow over of results over info about next years stadium reno and moves. It's insulting.

Let's hope they are sensible about prices on this occasion.
Oh man in theory, if we make it to the conference finals, the home match will be quite cold!!!!!!!!!
OMG Please let us finish 2nd! I have to be out of town on November 1st. I've waited so long for this and I would be heart broken to miss it.
I think we'll get the 29th if we host a wild card. They'd be huge dicks not to give it to us.
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.
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.
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.
BMO field in November.
Shiver me timbers, button up.
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"
Log in everyone, post what you find!

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.
