U.S. Soccer encourages fans to beat the traffic and arrive early for the U.S. national team’s World Cup qualifier vs. Trinidad & Tobago, set to kick off at 5:50 p.m. MT (7:50 p.m.) Thursday at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (FS1, UniMas, UDN).

Fans and media traveling to the match should keep in mind that rush hour kickoff combined with Denver rush-hour traffic may impact conditions and increase travel time to and from the stadium Thursday. Fans are encouraged to arrive no later than 5 p.m. MT to ensure seeing opening kickoff.

On matchday, the Ticket Office (near Gate F) will open at 9 a.m., the stadium parking lots and FanHQ will open at 2 p.m., and stadium gates (B – G) will open at 3:30 p.m. MT.

In addition to arriving early, fans are also reminded of the MLS Bag Policy in place for Thursday’s match.

Under the new MLS Bag Policy, fans are prohibited from bringing the following into the stadium:

Large purses



Backpacks of any kind

Luggage of any kind

Computer bags

Camera bags

Any bag larger than 14″x14″x6″

Special considerations will be made for guests with special medical needs and parents caring for infants.

Drawstring bags/cinch sacks are okay, but must be under the size listed above and cannot be “backpack style.”
