The 3,000-Seat, Safe-Standing Section Behind the North Goal Will Be the Heartbeat of the St. Louis CITY Stadium Experience
ST. LOUIS (Sept 21, 2021) – St. Louis CITY SC today announced that starting October 19, 2021 fans will be able to purchase season tickets for the stadium’s 3,000-seat, safe-standing supporter section behind the North goal. The supporter section is where the team’s most vocal supporters will energize the entire stadium by creating an atmosphere dominated by singing, chanting, drumming and the waving of banners and flags.
“The supporter section will truly be the heartbeat of our game day, so we wanted to show appreciation to the region’s most loyal and die-hard soccer fans by inviting them to be among the first to purchase their tickets,” said Matt Sebek, St. Louis CITY SC Chief Experience Officer.
The soccer experience is often defined by the drama of the supporter section and St. Louis CITY is looking to create one of the most exciting and energized supporter sections in Major League Soccer. Special features within the safe-standing, locked-seat general admission section will include “capo” stands for chant leaders, centralized drum platform, a dedicated supporter bar featuring local beers and spirits, and customized rigging designed to support oversized tifo banners that can be hung from the stadium’s canopy roof.
The slope of the supporter safe-standing section is 34%, or the steepest allowed in the MLS, inspired by European soccer clubs such as Borussia Dortmund and designed so fans will be as close to the field as possible. Combined with the stadium’s flat canopy, this design will maximize the reverb of the chanting, cheering, and drumming from the team’s supporters in the north end of the stadium, resulting in an intimidating wall of sound that will electrify the gameday atmosphere.
Supporter section ticket deposit holders will be able to convert their deposits to season tickets starting on Tuesday, October 19 by purchasing through SeatGeek, the ticketing partner St. Louis CITY selected to assist with the team’s record-setting season-ticket deposits. Supporter ticket prices will be $391 for the entire season, which is $23 per match and can be purchased in full or via a convenient payment plan. Current deposit holders will receive emails from the club with more information and directions on setting up their SeatGeek St. Louis CITY SC account by October 12 in order to purchase supporter tickets starting on October 19. The specific buy window for fans who have placed deposits will be based on the deposit time stamp and the team is still accepting deposits for those interested in being part of the supporter movement.
“We have been working closely with our ticketing partner, SeatGeek, to develop a seamless process for our fans to confirm and purchase their seats,” said Edmound Elzy, St. Louis CITY SC Vice President, Ticket Sales & Service. “We wanted to give fans interested in being part of soccer’s unique supporter culture an early opportunity to secure their tickets and begin to map out their game day experience in one of the most important sections in the stadium.” General reserved seating tickets will go on sale in spring 2022.
The SeatGeek ticketing platform will integrate seamlessly into St. Louis CITY’s new mobile app and allow eventgoers to manage tickets and parking. SeatGeek’s best-in-class technology will provide fans a streamlined user experience to easily buy, transfer and scan tickets and continue to use mobile tickets to stay contactless upon entering the stadium. “From initiatives like our Fan Experience Council, our new custom-built mobile app, and our CITY Flavors initiative where we’ve asked fans to help us create the in-stadium food and beverage experience, our focus continues to be around putting St. Louis CITY fans first,” said Sebek.
St. Louis CITY joins a strong roster of Major League Soccer and National Women’s Soccer League teams that have partnered with SeatGeek, including Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns, Sporting Kansas City, Austin FC, as well as an overall league partnership between SeatGeek and MLS. The platform is also the majority ticketer of the English Premier League, with partners like Liverpool F.C. and Manchester City F.C. SeatGeek’s partner roster also includes many other U.S.-based major league teams, including the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys and the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers.
