For those of you not lucky enough to have season tickets this year then you'll probably be relying on nabbing a few of these single game tickets. Luckily, you now have plenty of time to request February 28th off from work and get in line nice and early to ensure that you're able to attend at least a few games. And I do recommend getting in line early...
In any case, the tickets will be sold exclusively through the Jeld-Wen box office at 18th and SW Morrison with each ticket starting at $15, although that price probably increases for some key match ups (Seattle Sounders, Los Angeles Galaxy).
As an added bonus it looks like there are some bonuses such as free coffee (Stumptown) and pizza (Papa Murphy's) for those who show up early. Also Jeld-Wen (the company not the stadium) is planning on handing out 100 Home Depot gift cards to the first 100 people.
Again I do recommend getting in line fairly early. Last year most tickets to the big games were gone fairly fast and I would expect a similar thing to happen this year, especially if you want to catch the home opener against the Philadelphia Union.
Oh and one last thing, if you're on the waiting list for season tickets then you'll be able to get in on an exclusive pre-sale period beginning February 23rd.
Full presser after the jump.
