OT: St. Louis City SC Reveals Jersey

I think there is too much going on in the jersey.  Seven patches, double shoulde bars, yellow tubing down the side, what they are calling an arch pattern on the one side, the blue and yellow on the collar and the sleeves end.  I know it is supposed to draw from the city flag, but it just doesn't come together well in my opinion.

I suppose I don’t overly care, but not a fan of the jerseys nor was I fan of the crest or colors when they presented those with the team name. With the jersey it seems like too much going on and I can’t get behind the pink and don’t think the multiple colors really play very well together. The stadium looks great and I care far more about that than the colors, crest, or the jerseys, so I’m not a hater just would have gone a different direction. And Taylor Twellman is insufferable, so having him wearing the jersey certainly doesn’t help my opinion.

Went to the game at the new stadium last night… awesome venue.  Only complaint is that the concourses are a little small, especially under the “Ultra Club”, resulting in some pretty gnarly foot traffic. Took us literally 25 minutes to get from where we entered to the other side of the stadium to where our seats were.  I’m sure that’ll improve as people learn where they’re going/ they reconfigure placement of beer stands, etc. 
 

Great sight lines, every seat feels like it’s right on top of the pitch.   Good food options, although it’s definitely much quicker/easier to order food through the app. If you wait in the lines it will take a while.   And holy Merchandise… they must’ve recouped their expansion fee in merch sales alone last night. 
 

Bring on 2023.

The concourses are pretty tight at FC Cincinnati's new stadium, as well. I'm not sure there's any avoiding it in the 20,000-25,000 size range.

Yeah, but at some places in the concourse it was packed in to the point where your arms were pinned to your side and you couldn’t take a step in any direction. At that point it’s a safety issue. If there would be an emergency that caused a bunch of people to start running, people would’ve been crushed. 
 

Again, this was only under the Ultra Club where it was really that big of an issue. They had food and beer vendors lining either side of the concourse the whole way down in that section, which really bottle-necked the foot traffic.  I’m sure stadium organizers heard from plenty of people about it and they’ll do some rearranging to help the situation. 
 

My seats are in 111, so we will just enter the stadium on the other side in the future, and avoid that section of the concourse entirely.

And that's exactly how it was at Cincinnati for US-Mexico

Ahh, I see. It seems like that would be a major consideration when it comes to stadium design…  especially considering soccer’s nasty history with fan crushes.

Ridiculous, but I am not surprised given the demographics they appear to want to draw and the way the have been trying to market the concessions.
