If I cannot make it to a home game, can I return my ticket(s)? How can I return my ticket(s)?

Returned tickets cannot be exchanged for cash and can only be applied to tickets in the 2013 home-schedule. All credit must be applied to any home game by the end of the 2013 MLS regular season.

Tickets can be mailed, scanned then faxed or emailed to Fan Relations with the barcode cut or torn, or dropped off to the Front Office at: 451 El Camino Real, Suite 220, Santa Clara, CA 95050.
