  1. For those traveling to Edmonton. I looked into getting downtown from the airport. Taking the 747 bus, which costs $5 to Century Park Transit Centre and from there taking the LRT Capital Line to the downtown area. The Stadium stop is also on the Capital Line. I am staying at the Holiday Inn Express right downtown which is a about 5 minute walk from the Bay/Enterprise LRT stop. https://flyeia.com/wp-content/uploads/EIA_Route_747_ETS_schedule.pdf https://www.edmonton.ca/ets/lrt-station-locations An Uber would cost about $45-50 from the airport to the downtown core. I am landing in Edmonton at 9:30 am local on the day of the Mexico game on the Swoop Flight from Toronto.
  2. They will be playing on the turf, you are not laying grass down in November, especially in Northern Alberta.
  3. Thank god, that is great to know Al. Will certainly make it better going that route. Looking forward to it.
  4. An an example the track and slope of the stands at the Olympic Stadium in London makes it the worst place to watch a premier league match. Went to a West Ham game there, will never go back.
  5. This is one massive stadium with a lot of space between the field and stands. Will the section be in a corner, the one end is quite far from the touchline?
  6. Plus all the kids will think the team is cool after being hit up by Drake. Can’t underestimate that exposure. Things will get exciting in Edmonton.
  7. Will be in town for the Mexico game. Landing from Toronto on the morning of the match Had a trip to the US already booked for the weekend.
  8. Thanks, did not notice that. Been a long week. Thanks
  9. What are people thinking regarding the kickoff times for the games in Edmonton, will they be positioned for east tv with a say 5-6 pm local time kickoff? That would be nice considered the possible weather, the earlier the better in my eyes, will be interesting to see what considerations prevail in picking it.

  11. Thank you, much appreciated, the earlier I can enjoy a beer after landing, the better. Cheers
  12. Ireland Jonas Häkkinen (@jonashakki) saw the full 90' for @CorkCityFC in a 1-0 loss against UCD. #CanMNT-eligible defender Kosovar Sadiki (@KosovarSadiki) saw the full 90' for @FinnHarpsFC in a tough 4-1 loss against Waterford. Corey Chambers (@coreychambers22) served as the backup keeper for @CobhRamblersFC in a 2-0 win over Shelbourne. England Dan Jebbison (@danjebbison) had the start for Burton Albion, going 70' in a 3-2 win against Morecambe in League One action.
  13. When is last call in Alberta, is it still early? I am landing from Toronto on the Tuesday for the Mexico at 9:30 am, guess straight to the bar , when is first call?
  14. And just in for all those all interested, a few weather facts for Edmonton. Now as we all know the weather can change in a minute but this should at least give you an idea of what we may all be facing. To honest I have never experienced anything colder than I did at the MLS Cup in 2016. I was frozen to the bone after that, the loss did not help either. Looking forward to this, bring it on. Weather in November The last month of the autumn, November, is another freezing cold month in Edmonton, Canada, with average temperature varying between -1.1°C (30°F) and -7.1°C (19.2°F). Temperature In Edmonton, the average high-temperature plummets, from a frosty 8.5°C (47.3°F) in October, to a freezing cold -1.1°C (30°F). In November, the average low-temperature is -7.1°C (19.2°F). Humidity In Edmonton, the average relative humidity is 84%. Rainfall In Edmonton, during November, the rain falls for 3.5 days and regularly aggregates up to 14mm (0.55") of precipitation. Throughout the year, in Edmonton, there are 108 rainfall days, and 338mm (13.31") of precipitation is accumulated. Snowfall Months with snowfall in Edmonton are January through June, September through December. November is the month with the most snowfall in Edmonton.

UV index In Edmonton, Canada, the average daily maximum UV index in November is 2. A UV Index value of 2, and less, symbolizes a low threat to health from unsafe exposure to the UV radiation for average individuals. Note: In November, the average maximum UV index of 2 translate into the following recommendations: Extended sun exposure is not an issue for the majority. Children, infants, and fair-skinned individuals always need to be protected. The solar radiation is most powerful near the mid-day, so the exposure to the direct Sun should be reduced accordingly. Sun-protective clothing, a long-sleeved shirt and pants, a wide-brimmed hat, and UVA and UVB-blocking sunglasses are particularly helpful in blocking UV radiation's harmful effects. Beware! The strength of the UV rays is increased nearly double-fold by the reflection of the snow.
  15. I really want to see at least 50K for both matches in Edmonton, pack the place large x 2.
