USA vs. T&T Viewing Parties and Tailgates

All 22 Bars in the U.S. Soccer Official Bar Program are having viewing parties during tomorrow's U.S. vs. Trinidad & Tobago match from Bridgeview, Illinois. The game, which kicks off at 7 p.m. CT, will be shown live in all the venues (that includes newest member Kells Irish Restaurant and Pub in Portland, Oregon) so be sure to swing by if you're looking for a place to watch the game with a bunch of other routy fans cheering for the U.S.

Any info on where the "official" tailgate will be outside Toyota Park (usual Section 8 Area?)? Can't do the bus from one of the bars, but we are looking to join the tailgate fun...and looking forward to our first MNT match in person.

I'm looking forward to attending my first live World Cup Qualifier! And I'm glad that it has only taken you TWO YEARS to get a game in at Toyota Park... :-) Regardless, I'll take what I can get when it comes to USMNT games in Chicago.

Just be glad there's no England game on at the same time as the US game tomorrow night, or the staff at Nevada's would make you watch in the basement.

Tailgate Info:
Nike is sponsoring a tailgate for all US fans in the North parking lot near gate C. SA members can congregate in that area, enjoy the give aways and videos, then head into the stadium together!
Over the next 3 WCQ's, Sam's Army has set up a choreo/TIFO display to be held up during the National Anthem. Depending on where you are, we are asking to help hold up the big flag (thanks Ed Kirwan!), or balloons that will be left on the appropriate seats, or long streamers left on their appropriate seats. It should create a great visual to help support the team and energize the rest of the crowd. Thank you to David Gubala and his crew for helping set this up. If you can, snap some pictures and send them to us and we'll put it up on the site! Go USA! Please be sure to keep the balloons in the stands and not on the field as requested by US Soccer
