Before the festivities get underway on July 4th, we would like to take a moment to inform you of all the updated policies and procedures regarding ticketing, parking, social distancing and safety practices we will be implementing for the match.

 

All tickets have been sent to the email we have on file and should be in your inbox at this time.  If you do not have your tickets, please give Daniel a call at 719-822-2794 so we can get those tickets sent to you before the match.  Your ticket will be delivered to you as a PDF in an email.  You can either print your ticket out beforehand at home, or we can scan your ticket directly off your phone.

 

There is no field-level seating for this event tomorrow night.  All tickets were placed as close to their original seat location as possible, but we did have to move a few accounts.  All field side and business club tickets were placed in suites while Base Camp tickets were placed as close to the old Base Camp location as possible in sections 116 and 117.  All seats are reserved; however, we left the old Base Camp area unoccupied for the first 30 Trailheads to use as Base Camp.

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to make updates to a few of our stadium guidelines and procedures.

  • We will only be allowing clear bags into the venue to ensure our security check is as touchless as possible.
  • We are encouraging all fans to pay for concessions and merchandise via cashless methods of payment, however, cash will still be accepted.
  • We have implemented a 6 foot-socially distanced manifest to ensure all parties are at a safe distance while viewing the match. 
  • NO WIND INSTRUMENTS WILL BE ALLOWED.  This includes vuvuzelas, horns, and bagpipes.  Drums will be allowed.
  • NO TIFO’s ARE TO BE FLOWN IF IT REQUIRES CONGREGATION TO DO SO.  Small personal flags will be permitted but will be limited to 2 flags per guest.
  • While we understand it has been a while since you have gotten to see all your Switchbacks friends, we DISCOURAGE fans congregating on walkways and combining seating areas without prior authority.  If Switchbacks FC employees see groups begin to form, the group will be asked to return to their assigned seats.
  • We are encouraging all our fans to join us in wearing facemasks for the evening to ensure not only the safety of yourself, but for other guests around you.  While this measure is highly encouraged, masks are not a requirement to enter the stadium.

To be able to perform this event, we have had to split our venue up into four separate quadrants to abide by local health guidelines. 

 

We will be asking all our ticket holders to park and enter the stadium in in the quadrant that is closest to your ticket location for the 4th.  You will not be allowed to enter the stadium in any other quadrant than the one you are assigned to.  The quadrants are shown below as well as a list of the sections assigned to each quadrant.

  • Quadrant A – Sections 104, 105, 106, Suite 4A, Suite 4B, Suite 5A, Suite 5B, Suite 6A, Suite 6B
  • Quadrant C – Sections 100, 101, 102, 103, Suite 1A, Suite 1B, Suite 2A, Suite 2B, Suite 3A, Suite 3B
  • Quadrant D – Sections 114, 115, 116, 117
  • Quadrant G – Sections 110, 111, 112, 113

If you have a 2020 Switchbacks season parking pass, regardless if it is a VIP parking pass or not, you will be able to use your parking pass in your assigned quadrant.

 

Here is the timeline for the 4th of July as it stands right now.  All times are subject to change and we will keep everyone updated if any changes are made.

6:00 PM – 6:30 PM - $1 Beer
