Does Anyone Need A Ticket To The Trophee de Champions Match On July 28?

8 Jul


French soccer’s Super Cup is being played for the first time on American soil at Red Bulls Stadium in Harrison, NJ on Saturday, July 28th at 3:00 PM. It’s Olympique Lyonnais vs. Montpellier.  One of our watishistos has a ticket that he can’t use. It’s in Section 104, Row 4. Here’s the Red Bulls seating chart. Ticket is $45. Get in touch with me at hbandshbreak@gmail.com if you’re interested. I’ll be there as well sitting in the same section in row 3. It’s super easy to get there from NYC and the metro area. Here’s directions.

    Could have gotten front row to this at one point cause I guess no one knew about it. Had to pass because the RM-AC Milan game tickets were so expensive. Yoann and I could have had a moment though 😥

    It’s a shame so many local fans are being deprived of getting to see their teams play by having the game played in the States. Things like this really bother me–I guess they figured they’d get more money out of Americans than they would local French fans.

      Well, last year it was played in Morocco, before that Tunisia, before that Quebec. I guess they’re moving it around to areas around the world that have French fans. NYC has plenty of French speaking folks, Ligue 1 fans, etc. so I guess they’re just sharing the love. It hasn’t been played in France proper since 2008 so this isn’t really anything new. Ah, I just looked it up – they started taking the match international to promote French football around the world.

        I see–I didn’t realize it wasn’t always played in France. It still seems odd, but if that’s the way they’ve always done it then I guess it’s not so bad. I still get annoyed at the way clubs trot their teams all over the globe during the summer to make money from foreign audiences (like all the North American pre-season shenanigans, playing in China, playing in Kuwait,etc). I know all the big clubs do it but it’d be nice if they weren’t quite so obvious in their quest to make money.

          Well, for fans around the world, it’s a rare chance to see the teams they love play. Not everyone has the finances to fly off to a another country if they support a foreign team, so I see it as a thank you to the fans as well as making money/expanding the brands.I for one am glad that they do the pre-season tours.

            Hello my friends, I happened on this old discussion by chance 😉 I’m a French fan and a big collector of match tickets. On your part could you help me in this? I can exchange well obviously. I was in NY with my family in April 2019 I attended a FC New York game, very happy this evening! Friendship of old Europe 😉 Sincerely Pascal

              Hi Pascal! Thanks for reaching out. If I recall correctly, I bought my ticket online and just printed it out at home. It wasn’t an actual ticket. I might be wrong but most of my game tickets are that way. I don’t think I still have mine since it is so long ago, but I am doing some clearing out of documents and if I run into, I will let you know. I am a big collector of concert tickets so I understand! I miss actual tickets. So happy that you got a chance to visit my wonderful city. New York is a great place. 🙂
