NYCFC vs Chicago Fire – Champions Club

Sunday I went to the NYCFC match vs. Chicago Fire at Yankee Stadium, and thanks to TiqIQ I had a seat upgrade to section 013.
These seats were amazing, and the only downside: They aren’t sloped enough.
For baseball that’s okay because no action is directly in front of you, and you can see the playing field. But with the goal directly in front of us, all people can see were the heads of the row in front of them.
Regardless, here is the view that greeted us before the match:

As well as full access to the Ketel One Club and a Kosher food menu:Ketel One Club Yankee Stadium Yankee Stadium Legends Kosher Menu

Among other great perks, these seats had a primary view for some great practice by the Chicago Fire goalkeepers:Chicago Fire Practice

Before the match started, the fans gave a welcoming cheer to NYCFC keeper Josh Saunders, and he responded accordingly:NYCFC Josh Saunders Hello

When the game got underway, the fans next to us didn’t seem to grasp that Yankee Stadium didn’t just have baseball games…and that the signs on the seats for “BE ALERT FOR BATS AND/OR BALLS” was limited to just soccer balls for the night. I am not trying to make fun of them or anything…but you be the judge:Soccer Mitt

Yes, that’s a baseball mitt.

Throughout the game I got some good shots of the action and some of the leaders of the team:

After the game we were on the wrong end of the pitch for where the players gathered to greet fans, but fan favorite Kwadwo Poku came by to say hi to us on the first base line:009 Poku

All-in-all it was a fun match, with amazing seats, and unfortunately ended in a 0-0 draw.
