SEASON TICKET MEMBER MLS CUP LOTTERY INFORMATION
Should Sporting Kansas City win the Western Conference on Thursday night, we will advance to MLS Cup 2018 to be played on Saturday, December 8 at the home venue of either the New York Red Bulls
or Atlanta United FC.
Season Ticket Members have the exclusive opportunity to enter into a lottery to purchase MLS Cup tickets. Please read the guidelines below for more information on how this lottery process will work.
By entering the lottery, you are agreeing to the purchase of MLS Cup tickets should you be selected.
How to Enter the MLS Cup Lottery:
Between now and 11:59PM CT on Wednesday, November 28, access your Sporting KC Account Manager via SeatGeek. Under the ‘Offers’ tab, click on the ‘MLS Cup Lottery’ link. From there, you will be prompted to select which venue lottery you’d like to enter. You may sign up for both New York and Atlanta, or just one or the other. We understand some fans may be able to make it to Atlanta but not New York and vice versa. By entering the MLS Cup Lottery, you are agreeing to the purchase of tickets should you be selected.
If selected, you are eligible to purchase as many seats as Season Tickets on your account, up to a maximum of four (4). (Ex: If you have two (2) Season Tickets, you will be eligible to purchase up to two (2) MLS Cup tickets; if you have eight (8) Season Tickets, you will be eligible to purchase up to four (4) MLS Cup tickets.) Pricing will be listed on your SeatGeek Account Manager.
If you wish to purchase less than the maximum number of eligible MLS Cup tickets based on the amount of seats on your Season Ticket account, please contact your Client Service Executive by the deadline of 11:59PM CT on Wednesday, November 28. Otherwise you will be automatically charged for the maximum number of eligible MLS Cup tickets based on the amount of seats on your Season Ticket account, should you be selected.

SEASON TICKET MEMBER 2018 PLAYOFF INFORMATION
It’s time for Kansas City to claim the cup, and we can’t do it without your support in making Children’s Mercy Park the most intimidating venue in the league for opposing teams!
As a Season Ticket Member, we’ve reserved your regular season seat location for all three potential home playoff matches (Conference Knockout Round, Conference Semifinals, and Conference Final). Playoff tickets will be charged on a ‘Pay-As-We-Play’ basis, meaning that you don’t pay for your playoff tickets until we’ve clinched a home playoff match. As Sporting KC continues in the postseason, your card will be charged at that time. We’ll remind you of all upcoming payments along the way.
MLS CUP 2018
A potential MLS Cup Final at Children’s Mercy Park is not part of the three-match Playoff ticket package and will be a separate purchase. The MLS Cup Final is scheduled to be played on Saturday, December 8. If we are fortunate to host the match, more information on your presale will be provided after the Western Conference Final.
