FINAL UPDATE!!! Canada vs Mexico *Azteca Trip** March 26-30

Recommended Posts

Final update - Safe Flights everyone

 
Hi everyone. This will be the final update before departure. Please check the arrival transfer list and notify me of any issues as soon as possible.
 
ARRIVAL TRANSFER 
 
Shuttles have been confirmed for everyone. 
Here's what to do. 
After you go through immigration, customs and pick up your bags follow the exit signs. When you get in the arrival hall look for the SAT Mexico rep. They should be holding a sign that says VOYAGEURS/AZTECA. 
 
Go introduce yourself as they will have a list of people on each transfer. 
Please note. There may have been others on your flight (or another flight landing at a similar time) on the same transfer so don't leave until everyone is there. 
 
Here is the list of who you should be transferred with check if they are on your flight or a different flight.

GAME TICKETS
Tickets will be given out on game day bus. It looks like we are in the upper deck at the south end. Good news is nothing will be thrown onto us from above :)
 
PLEASE NOTE THE TICKETS SAY NO CAMERAS ALLOWED. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
 
GAME DAY
The transfer from the hotel is at approximately 4:00. If we can get everyone there earlier we will go a bit earlier to the pre-game and get a bit more time to experience the atmosphere around the stadium (and not risk traffic). If you are coming for just the game package we ask you to arrive before 2pm if possible.
 
We are going to a pub/restaurant before the stadium as our tour partner felt it best to do so rather than a local pub near the stadium. We will arrive at Azteca at minimum 45mins before kick off so you can experience some local flavour. Our security team will be with us the whole way along with an English speaking guide. 
The transfer after the game will take us back to the hotel.If you would like to make your own way after please let me know BEFORE the game so we dont wait for you. The departure will be whenever we get escorted out of the stadium.
 
LUCHADORE /CANTINA NIGHT/TEQUILA MUSEUM 
 
On Sunday evening if you are not going to the Luchadores but you still want to do the cantina/tequila tour we can arrange to pick you up on the way by after the wrestling. 
 
AZTECA TOUR
As of today this is still confirmed for Monday am. Any changes I will advise as soon as possible.
 
TEOTUHICAN  TOUR
There is an option to go a tour to the pyramid and ruins AFTER Azteca tour. As long as we get 10 people it will be $25usd per person. 
The bus will drop off those not going back at the hotel on the way. We need to decide and pay on Sunday.
 
GET TOGETHER 
As people are arriving throughout Saturday we thought it would be good to meet at breakfast. So Sunday breakfast come down and say hi to your fellow fans. (Wear something red to stand out). We will also leave a note in the lobby of anywhere we hang out on Saturday night (likely in or near the hotel
 
TSHIRTS
we have custom road warrior shirts for you all. Make sure to grab one at breakfast and wear it with pride for Luchadores night!

I am definitely in, but so far, it is just myself.

Looking for a room mate or two to bring the cost down. Should I pay the deposit now? Or wait until I find them?

Is anything refundable/adjustable? The FMF has yet to say where they will play this game. Azteca is the most likely choice but this could end up in Monterrey or elsewhere.

100%

I am damn tempted I can tell you that much.

Repeated concussions interfere with the inhibition part of the brain.

All you need is a wall

Do you mean the deposit is 100% refundable? I'm definitely interested but have to sort out vacation at work and won't know for a month or so. 

All of it would be refundable if they move the game.  We would know well before our holds on everything would interfere with that.

Definitely coming from YVR even if I end up alone. I am waiting to get an answer from a friend who is 50-50. He would come from YUL. I expect to send my deposit next week. Just waiting to see if I am alone or 2. I will cancel the whole thing if the game is not in Mexico City though.

We can work you in with other people if your friends bail out.

"Safe area" of Mexico City is sadly enough a very good selling feature.

 

Also ...

DAY 03 - MONDAY 28TH MARCH  VOYAGEURS CANTINAS, MARIACHI & TEQUILA TOUR (Included) PLUS AZTECA STADIUM TOUR!!
 

Plus a tour behind the scenes of Azteca Stadium (maybe we can hide a Voyageur scarf in the dressing room?) I say place a lucky loonie under centre field turf  :D

Cheapest flights for the dates from Calgary to Mexico City: $1300. That makes it tough. Will have to check seat sales.

WTF?

It was just over 500 from Toronto.  Not sure now.

I'll check with Trevor.

When the game is confirmed, contact Trevor. We are seeing prices $400 less than that.

I start my new job on Monday -- as long as they give me the time, I am in.  I think it will just be me though.  Is it rude to ask for time off on my first day ;) ?

Just say "I need the week off... for Canada." Irresistable.

IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!

This game is Easter weekend.  We have been given until October 15th to hold things at the current price.

Get your deposit in.  NOW.

Of Coarse.  I passed on Belize so I could be a good mom and be here for the first day of school.  Now I am probably ditching my family for Easter......
