    My wife and I arrived in Mexico City yesterday and have been doing tourist stuff. There was a guy on my flight wearing a TFC hat but I didn’t get a chance to talk to him.

    is anyone planning a meeting before the match? Also, Ticketmaster says I have to pick up the tickets at the stadium on game day. Is that the case for everyone? I bought tickets in section 423, which I believe is the away section.

    Just a heads up if you’re going to Guadalajara that the city is much more dangerous and violence more prevalent than the last two Mexican destinations. Be very careful, travel in groups.

    A former colleague of mine was shot at in Guadalajara while he was in a cop car. The city is next level 😉.

    At least we're not playing Santos Laguna. IIRC last time we played there somoene was shot in the stadium during the game.

    Mexico. What a place.

    I had a suspicion that the Club might organize something. Perhaps.

    I haven't been, but I've never read that Guadalajara is particularly unsafe, compared to, say, Mexico City. No warning from the Canadian government travel website about Guadalajara anyway...

    Not to get too into this, but Guadalajara is very much cartel territory and is used as a hub for crap coming up from south america up through the Us Border as well as a port for stuff being shipped through the pacific ocean.

    It's not exactly as bad as La Paz but it's certainly not Monterrey.

    I think you guys are overdoing it re dangers of Guadalajara.

    Jalisco (the state) is not on the US State Department "do not travel" list
    https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/01/...te-department/

    There is a lower category, "Reconsider Travel", that Jalisco is in, but Guadalajara is specifically excluded
    https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/tra...rism-hotspots/

    A cursory google search turns up a bunch of things like this
    https://www.quora.com/Is-it-safe-to-...to-Guadalajara

    There are definitely incidents once in a while (six years ago, a charter bus full of tourists was robbed in Puerto Vallarta, which is not far from Guadalajara), an incident that got a ton of press https://www.cnn.com/2012/02/26/world...ery/index.html

    But if you look at google links for stories on "tourist robbed guadalajara" or "american robbed guadalajara", there is a story, one story, about the shooting of a consular officer. Not nice. But that's it. You can't find an actual report of an actual crime against a tourist or businessman.

    (For comparison: type in "tourist robbed cancun", you'll get a ton of them. Of course there are a lot more tourists in Cancun, so the comparison isn't definitive. But still - Guadalajara is Mexico's second biggest city, there are hundreds of American businessmen travelling there every day)

    I think - if you use some basic common sense, eg: avoid being out on the streets without locals at night, avoid public transit... you'll be fine.

    Me too. $406 return right now if you do Tue-Fri, though, which is pretty tempting itself

    It's all about being aware, smart and knowing your surroundings. You are in cartel country so just keep your eyes open.

    Hello all:

    Not a member of RPB, but long time SSH and lurker.

    I am serious about going, although was hoping there would be some type of club or supporters organization for being down there. If there is any info at all (hotel, tickets, transportation) for travelling fans would love to hear it.

    Thanks in advance.

    It’s in the members section. Everything we organize goes through members first, and then if there is tickets left it might get opened up to general, like the last round. It’s one of the perks of being a Red Patch Boy.
    Away trips: 2014 - Seattle. 2015 - Montreal. 2016 - Montreal x2. Playoffs - NYCFC, Montreal. 2017 - Salt Lake, Philly, Ottawa, Montreal, Chicago, LA, Atlanta. ​Playoffs - NYRB, Columbus. 2018 ​- Monterrey, MX (Tigres) CCL, Montreal, Ottawa, Montreal. 2019 - ​Philly

    I don't suppose there's any chance information will be shared with the uninitiated before we go booking flights?

    I found this on the TFC reddit. Haven't used them personally, maybe give them a call. https://tfcontheroad.ca/collections/...s-league-final

    Why are they using a picture of Xolos stadium for a game between TFC and Chivas?
