NEW YORK - New York City FC fan Lucas Oswaldes is still waiting in line with more than 200 other NYCFC fans to try make it into the stadium for the game against the Toronto Football Club that already finished on 3-13-2016
Despite knowing that the game was completed with a 2-2 scoreline, Mr. Oswaldes admitted that he is still going to wait to get into the stadium, just to prove a point.
"I know that they changed the ticket policy at the last minute after claiming they weren't going to change anything just last month and they did a generally horrible method of notifying the fan base, but I'm planning on sticking this thing out and making a point of my having to miss three or four days of work to get into the stadium for a game," stated Mr. Oswaldes to The Nutmeg News on Tuesday.
Reportedly, Mr Oswlades has already been fired from his job after not showing up but that hasn't dampened his passion for showing up the club he just started supporting last season.
"They are wrong and they know it. This policy and the timing of it was a complete disaster and I hope they feel bad."
The Nutmeg News spoke to Bill Stewart of the New York City FC front office about this policy change and he had the following to say.
"We did have the intention of changing this down the line, but the Yankees told us otherwise, and honestly... money talks. We would care, but we already GOT the money from the people whether they were in the stadium or not. Feel free to complain, but no one here really cares. Next time we will make it even more complicated to get into the stadium and we won't even notify you what you need to bring!"
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as NYCFC announces they will only take tickets in the form of a retinal scan with a DNA screen and Urinalysis for their next home game against Orlando City.
