Awesome!  I've been trying to find a way to get tho this game.  I'd likely just bring my dad as a birthday present, so if anyone wants to make a lottery pool with me (if you win, I get 2 of your tickets at face value, and vice versa) then let me know.  I went in for the upper and lower midfield tickets.

I live close to Columbus, so judging by what Ticketmaster said, I should have some preference (they stated proximity would matter to avoid scalpers).

I have a buddy that works in the US soccer organization and he has told me that Klinsman loves columbus and if he had a choice, would play all the qualifiers there. I know we hate them because of Ohio State but the international soccer atmosphere there is amazing. If were gonna complain about video boards then Wrigley Field is horrible place to watch a game %s

Since they only have sideline and corner tickets available does that mean endline tickets (because I'm cheap) will be available at a later date without the lottery?

Probably not.  Tickets here are in extremely high demand.  Go to Stub Hub and check the going rates.  They're higher than UTL or The Game.  If you're cheap, you should have bought 4 and sold two.  You could have gone for free, or even for a profit.

...I went to a USA v Mexico game at the Rose Bowl it was not a positive experience. It was worse than wearing Michigan gear in Columbus after Michihgan just beat Ohio. And I am being completely serious. Mexican soccer fans are VERY passionate and will somehow have a majority of the tickets for this game. The game itself will be very exciting.

...small stadium...while def not LA...there are significant Mexican communities in Chicago, Northern Indiana, Detroit.... and they will be jumping at the opportunity to see El Tri play in their backyard. The only way that Mexican fans won't outnumber US fans is if the random lottery system works itself out.

You're actually mistaken. US soccer specifically chooses Columbus to give the US home advantage. That's what they've done since 2001 and it's worked every time. Because the stadium's small, they can better control the ticketing. There will probably be about 5k Mexican supporters, but the vast majority of the crowd will be pro-US. Not to mention that they've already filtered 3k+ tickets through various US supporter groups.

Historically it hasn't been the case, they've done the Mexico qualifier in Columbus several times now and it's a big homefield advantage for the US every time.  Columbus has a relatively small Mexican population, Cleveland (most Latinos there are Puerto Rican) and Cincy's are almost non-existent.  And with a limited number of tickets in Crew Stadium and so many going to supporters groups, it's usually minimum 75% US supporters in the stadium, likely greater.

I have at least 8 people who would be willing to go (if not more) so if anyone wants to enter for the heck of it and doesnt want to go, I'll be more than happy to take them off your hands.  :)

Thank you for applying for tickets to the U.S. Men's National Team's upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Mexico on Sept. 10 at Columbus Crew Stadium.

Due to the large number of ticket applications received for this highly-anticipated event, U.S. Soccer will now inform applicants of their ticket request status by Friday, Aug. 2.

"The Federation originally set a July 30 response date, but extra time is needed to review all the requests. The combined number of tickets applied for and purchased through presales finished at more than twice the capacity of Crew Stadium.

We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience."

The competition element of sport, alongside the tasteful offer of a few sports, bring about the popularity of individuals going to watch game being played. This has prompted the particular phenomenon of spectator sport. help with algebra homework
