Formalised Home Support: Sam's Army Example

Toronto MB

Recommended Posts

Here is an exmaple of the way Sam's Army organises itself for a home game. Important to note are the ticketing connections. They have obviously established a direct medium through the USSF and TicketMaster allowing them to effectively control the supporters section. I also like how they provide resources and guidelines that make things easy for travelling supporters. The Voyageurs should definitely be undertaking similar steps for ticketing, and making similar information and guidelines available at canadian-soccer.com come WCQ

Sam's Army at US Men vs Sweden


Request from the SoCal Brigade:

Please do not bring drums, horns or other noise makers. The SoCal

Brigade will have two or three drums to help keep the section in rhythm

- that's enough. We stand and sing the whole game and respond to what is

going on down on the pitch.

Park on the street


The pub (Grunions) was chosen first, and then the hotel. It's easy

walking distance from the hotel to the pub and a reasonable walk to the

beach. Manhattan Beach is a good neighborhood between LAX and the

stadium. Its not walking distance to the stadium as the stadium is not

in a good neighborhood.

We can't have grills at the HDC as its on a university campus, so we go

to a nearby park first for a picnic, then hang out in the parking lot

for a while before the game.

Looking forward to having you all in sunny SoCal.
