The amenities and concourse are as basic as McMahon. Not that it matters much to FIFA, but the parking and ingress and egress are very poor.

Toronto and BC Place and call it a day. Canada shouldn’t be travelling all over the country for their 3 group games but I assume thats what the CSA want and why they would have 3 venues.
I’ve seen multiple games at Stade Saputo. It’s a great stadium and a shame it isn’t a big bigger.

Just found out I'm going to be in Toronto end of March. Will be trying to get tickets for the Jamaica game when they go on-sale.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good pub in downtown TO to watch the Costa Rica away game on the 24th? would love to watch that game in a charged atmosphere. Wanted to ask before I start my own google research.

He only broke 7.7 % of the bones in his foot. Hockey player would keep going.

Freeze it, some duct tape, and back out for the second period

That’s unfortunate. Hopefully he gets back to full health for the world cup, at least.

Wondering if anyone here is a Voyageurs member who wont be buying tickets? I will be flying in, assuming I get tickets, and would like to get 4 tickets so a couple family members can join me. Currently I should be able to buy 2 tickets with my join date seniority but would love the ability to buy two extra. So if you're a member who won't be flying in for it let me know, I promise this isn't for scalping purposes!

Voyageurs tickets go on sale Thursday. I can't imagine there being much left by the time they go on sale to the general public.

I did! I'm not sure how the "random lottery" works but I suspect that my application for Canada games as an applicant from Singapore worked in my favour.

Well sounds like you may have to wait a couple more months until his emotional farewell speech and testimonial match; Bayern thinks he will be back for the CL QF in about 4 weeks.
