New Timbers Army Gate Procedures for LA Galaxy Match on 7/14/12
In order to provide a fair and consistent entry procedure for Timbers Army fans entering through Gate 3, the following changes will be made for the upcoming home match on 7/14/12. This has been done after consultation with the 107ist Board who will assist with additional volunteers to help with education and execution

  • The first 1,000 TA fans will receive a numbered wristband based on arrival order
  • Wristbands will be placed on each fan upon arrival (Limit 1 per person)
  • Fans should line up numerically 180 minutes before kick-off (5 p.m.)
  • Fans that do not return by 5 p.m. are not guaranteed priority entry
  • Gate 3 will open 120 minutes before kickoff (6 p.m.)
  • There will be an express and a bag check lane so your wristband number does not guarantee numerical entry due to security checks in the bag line.

Fans not arriving in time to recieve a wristband must go to the end of the Gate 3 line or utlize alternative JELD-WEN Field gates that open at 90 minutes before kick-off (6:30 p.m.) For more information, please read this 107ist FAQ.
