The hot ticket is at MAPFRE Stadium this Saturday.

Columbus Crew SC President of Business Operation Andy Loughnane announced that MLS Cup is essentially sold out. The team has now sold all of the tickets allotted to the team by MLS headquarters and barring the team getting unused tickets back from the league, there won't be any more sold for Sunday.

The sellout came quickly after the game was officially set, but the team had already started selling tickets for a potential Cup game on Monday, November 9th to season ticket holders. Crew SC had just defeated the Montreal Impact in the Eastern Conference semi-finals with over 19,000 fans attending the series clincher and was working to sell a Cup final and the Conference Final game at the same time.

The team extended purchase options to the general public on Wednesday, November 18th with team officials stating that sales were brisk. Availability was very limited after Crew SC defeated the Red Bulls 2-0 in the first leg of the Conference Championship and the likelihood that MLS Cup would come to MAPFRE.

Crew SC announced that they would extend seating to the stage for the second time this postseason and available for in person ticket sales only on Tuesday, the 24th. That allotment was completely sold this morning.

The Timbers were extended a limited supply of away supporters tickets on Sunday evening after Portland clinched their trip to MLS Cup and they sold the initial run nearly immediately. The allotment is supposedly around 1,000 and demand was extremely high.

MLS Cup tickets are quite hot on the secondary market right now. The lowest priced ticket is $149 on the North End with $155 buying you a Stage Seating general admission ticket.

You can add your name to the waitlist in the possibility that more tickets become available, but the odds of getting a ticket is long. The day has arrived, Columbus Crew SC tickets are the hottest in town.
