Toronto fans can't get seats for MLS Cup final
However, some TFC season ticket holders were miffed because they went to buy tickets to the December 10 game, they couldn't buy tickets in their regular spots.
According to CP24, MLS took some of the seats and allotted them to sponsors, media and other clubs, including (of course) Seattle. Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment was aware of these issues and says it gave season ticket holders early access to get seats.
"It's certainly a challenge and one that comes with events that are run by the leagues whether it's All Star games or championship finals," said Dave Haggith, senior director of communications at MLSE in an email statement.
"We work to ensure our season seat holders are given preferred access including an early three-day window to purchase the best seats available as well as the opportunity to purchase additional seats for the event, at the best price, before they go on sale to the general public.
"Ultimately it's a challenge that we want to face again because it means our teams are contending for championships. This process will become easier for all involved with the experience that comes with playing in championship games."
However, fan site Waking the Red claims some season ticket holders found their regular seats on ticket re-sale site going for rather exhorbitant prices.
Tickets for the general public went on sale at 1 p.m. today and naturally, many had trouble getting them, considering they apparently sold out in three minutes. Here's how some fans reacted on Twitter.
