    I went to their last game where they introduced Drogba. It was awesome. Just a fantastic soccer atmosphere. They had their 3rd straight sell out and a record crowd of over 7100. I think the new stadium holds a little over 6000. So it was standing room only for a large group of people. In the Southern "Supporters" section is a group of rowdy fans called the "Banditos". They are awesome and wave flags, beat drums, set of smoke bombs and sing the entire game. Really added to the soccer atmosphere!

    There is a nice selection of food at the food tents. Of course Kona Grill was at one of the tents(Owner of Phx Rising is the owner of Kona Grill). There was also a hot dog tent and several different Mexican restaurant tents to choose from. Additionally they had a handful of food trucks there and Four Peaks was there serving beer as well.

    Seats were very comfortable. Not a bad seat in the house. It was a very windy the day we were there so it made eating a little challenging. However the wind died down as soon as the sun set. At least it kept thing cool.

    They have a nice large team shop tent with tons of great gear. I got a nice polo shirt and grabbed a t-shirt for my son and his best friend.

    Parking was a breeze now that they include the cost of parking in the ticket. I guess the first game was a nightmare getting to the game. I guess that first game many people missed the game as they were stuck in traffic waiting to park for like over an hour. It only took us 5 minutes to park so they fixed that issue. Took about 20 minutes for us to get out of the parking lot. Which compared to a Cardinals game is nothing. Only negative is my car was covered in dust from the lot since it's a dirt lot.

    Yeah we had a blast. I recommend checking a game out. Especially before it gets too hot. Even though all of their games start after 7pm, I'm not sure I will be going to many games during the summer. Might bring back nightmares of the Cardinals days playing at SDS.

    :devil:

    Their games are televised on Cox channel 1007 if you can't make it.

    Are they on DirecTV at all? Would love to follow the local team in addition to the EPL.

    I have no idea. But I think they stream their game on the Phoenix Rising FC home page.
