This one is my highest on the list.

I still can't believe we don't fill NFL stadiums for WCQs.

This is my highest:

Feb. 6, 2008 Mexico 2-2 T Reliant Stadium (Houston, Texas) 70,103

I think we'll get to that point, eventually. Right now, choosing SSS allows us to dictate who gets tickets, and establish actual home field advantage.

Yeah same. Maybe the 2022 cycle there could be a couple NFL stadiums* that could sell out. I think it would be awesome to have some sold out NFL stadiums though... for example, using the same cities as our home WCQs this year, the games would be at:
Sports Authority Field at Mile High (Denver)
CenturyLink Field (Seattle)
Paul Brown Stadium (Cincinatti, a little closer than Cleveland to Columbus)
Arrowhead Stadium (Kansas City)
and Utah only has college football stadiums so they could be played at any of them or somewhere else
the SEA, DEN, and KC stadiums are all known for being very loud, I bet they would be great atmospheres for soccer too (I know Seattle is)

*I know Seattle is an NFL stadium but sounds like it won't sell out this year

Entire stadium isnt even open for the game. Only 42k seats are available. Atmosphere will still be great I'm sure.

It's really dumb but the Mariners have a game a little before this one, too. Traffic is going to suck. it's another mitigating circumstance.

5PM + Mariners Game + USSoccer = Worst traffic north of LA.

What's the word on the pre game party tonight. I've heard it's at cinerama on 6th and golazo. Is that the same place?

Golazo and Cinerama are two different places.

Pep Rally is at Cinerama at 8pm, Golazo is having its own party at the same time.
