Dear Season Ticket Holders,

As Coach Buckle and the boys in Old Glory Red embark on this final stretch of the season, we’ve begun the process of looking ahead. Over the course of several weeks, we conducted focus groups and surveys to evaluate what you enjoyed most about your experience as a Season Ticket Holder. You also shared with us what amenities or experiences could use some improvement. We listened and have applied this critical feedback to our planning of 2016.

Your renewal for 2016 Republic FC season tickets is now available. Deadline to renew is November 22, 2015.

2016 season ticket packages will include 15 USL regular season matches and five special matches (e.g. U.S. Open Cup or friendlies). In addition, as a Season Ticket Holder, you will receive:

  • Specially designed Season Ticket Holder scarf similar in concept to what was designed by artist David Garibaldi in 2015 (separate scarf for youth and adult club seating)
  • MLS priority seating (pending the club secure MLS-rights)
  • Exclusive invitation to a 2016 preseason exhibition match offered only to Season Ticket Holders
  •  Meet the Team Event
  • 7-month payment plan option
  • Opt-in for prepaid parking
  • Ticketmaster Exchange program for the resale of seats
  • Opt-in opportunity for 2016 USL Playoff matches including payment plan
  • Ability to resell your seats through Ticketmaster Exchange
  • 10% merchandise discount card

All seating locations received a small increase in pricing. We did everything possible to limit this impact on your budget. The increase includes select fees, such as a facility fee and access to the California State Fair; fees that are required of Bonney Field and passed on to other parties. Most importantly, your individual ticket price is lower than anything that will be offered on single match pricing or general public sale.

These slight price increases will also aid us in the improvement of the overall experience. Based on your feedback, we will be investing in a secondary video board, enhanced sound system, expanded offerings and activities in The Market, improved customer service and faster exit times from the Cal Expo parking lot.

Additionally, based on your feedback through focus groups, surveys, social media and direct conversations, we will be making changes to our VIP and Field Seating areas.

Some of the key issues you have brought to our attention in these sections include:

  • You would prefer a reserved seat in VIP and not the first-come first-serve seating that currently exists
  • The desire for a “neighborhood-type” feeling in VIP that is both social and exclusive to its members
  • Food that is both consistent in quality and quantity
  • Better viewpoints of both the pitch and video board to ensure you don’t miss out on the action and replays
  • Additional restroom locations, especially on the VIP’s west side.

Because we are still researching and developing plans to address these issues, and determining how we can best serve you, we are not invoicing VIP and Field seats for 2016 season tickets at this time. Once we have finalized the plans to improve your VIP and/or Field Seating experience, we will share them with you by September 22. Invoices will be sent no later than October 1, 2015.

You may review your renewal invoice by visiting Sacramento Republic FC My Account Manager at https://oss.ticketmaster.com/aps/sacrepublicfc/EN/account/login. Additional information on season ticket benefits, pricing and FAQs is available at SacRepublicFC.com.

In addition, we are offering a special opportunity for anyone that chooses to pay off his or her balance early. All accounts paid in full by 11:59 p.m. on October 21, 2015 will be invited to an exclusive event for the unveiling of our 2016 kit. Attendees will be able to purchase the new kit (or jersey) before it goes on-sale to the general public. We will also guarantee ample time for our VIP and Field Seat Season Ticket Holders to take advantage of an early payment opportunity to provide access to this event.

A reminder that any unused playoff ticket funds for this year may also be rolled over and applied towards your 2016 season tickets payments. The deadline to purchase your 2015 Playoff tickets before prices increase is Friday, August 14. You will be able to claim your seats for the playoffs until August 31.

We commit to you as we enter our third season at Bonney Field, we will provide you with an enjoyable experience and deliver on the value you deserve.

 

Please review carefully and notify us if you wish to upgrade, relocate or add seats. You may also call us at (916) 371-6100 or email us at tickets@sacrepublicfc.com. If we may be of further assistance, don’t hesitate to contact one of our account representatives.

Glory Glory Sacramento!
