GeekWire Sounders Day: What to know if you’re coming to today’s big bash

soundersOK, Sounders fans, it’s game day!! We are excited for our first-ever GeekWire Sounders Day, presented by EMC/Isilon. The sun is supposed to emerge, which means good times on the rooftop deck.

Our block of tickets to the match are sold out, but there are a few tickets available to our tailgate party, which starts promptly at 4 p.m. Also, if you snoozed on match tickets through us, you can still get tickets by calling the Sounders’ box office directly at 206-381-7848.  Just tell them you want to sit in the GeekWire section in the Hawks Nest.

Here are some of the key logistical details you’ll need to know for today’s festivities. The most important being: arrive
Location: EMC/Isilon, 505 1st Avenue South, Suite 600. Registration will be on the 6th floor, and staffers from EMC/Isilon will escort guests to the rooftop deck via elevators.

The event is taking place at EMC/Isilon, with doors opening at 3:45 p.m.

Tickets: If you pre-ordered tickets to the Sounders match through GeekWire, you must pick up your match tickets from us at the pre-game event at EMC/Isilon. The first 75 people who signed up for tickets in the GeekWire section also will be given a limited-edition soccer scarf. Go to the registration table designated for match ticket holders upon check-in.

Food and beverages: We’ve got an awesome BBQ planned, as well as a fantastic array of microbrews. Come hungry, and thirsty!

Souners GM Adrian Hanauer is set to talk at 5 p.m.

Schedule: Arrive early! We’ve got a sold out crowd, so make sure to plan accordingly to navigate Pioneer Square on a Sounders’ game day. We will open registration at 3:45 p.m. Sounders GM Adrian Hanauer is scheduled to speak shortly after 5 p.m. That will be followed by drawings for some amazing prizes, including an awesome prize package from the Sounders; a 3-D printer from EMC/Isilon and GeekWire Summit tickets. By 6:30 p.m., we will start making our way to the match. The GeekWire sections are 101, 102 and the Hawks Nest, so the north entrance is the preferred entry point. Again, if you ordered your tickets through GeekWire, you must first pick them up at the pre-game event at EMC/Isilon.

Parking: You are on your own. Street parking and surface lots are located near EMC/Isilon. There also is paid parking available in the EMC/Isilon building. It’s a game day, so arrive early.

Thanks to everyone for participating in GeekWire Sounders Day, presented by EMC/Isilon.

Go Sounders!!
