Here's what we know as of Friday, April 21:
We (Shel+Tiff) want us to show up bigger than we did in Charlotte last year (60 PEOPLE DEEP!), y'all, so mark your calendars for time off and get ready! We are hoping to schedule bumper events around the match beginning at some point on July 18th but details are still very early in planning. If you were in Charlotte, you know we like to have a good time!
Chelsea in America members currently have access to purchase up to 4 tickets per membership. Said another way ... if you + your significant other both have memberships, you can purchase up to eight tickets between the two of you. Orders are due THIS SUNDAY (April 23) at 5pm. These seats will be in a TBD section (but likely endzone) dedicated supporters section. Make sure to select your CIA Chapter as "Southeast" and Local Group as "SE Raleigh" in the proper dropdowns to sit with our group. Check your email for links.
If you're not a Chelsea in America member ... Public "pre-sale" starts here on Tuesday April 25 at Noon. You'll still get allocated to a Chelsea section WITH THE USE of the code "BLUE".
LOTS OF SHENANGIANS (but like last year in Charlotte, absolutely no fun ;) will be had. So. Book your hotels. Get to the Triangle.
