RSL, why can't you move the match to an earlier time this weekend? You scheduled a soccer game during the biggest game in the state. Can't see very many people making the match.

According to the ticketing website, there are already 18,000 tickets to this game sold. It will likely be a sellout with the walk-up crowd.

Last time they moved a game to accomodate a football game, it was a disaster. The problem is a lot of families have kids playing soccer games earlier in the day. Keeping the game where it is is the right thing to do. And RSL is a big enough draw in this state that they don't need to bend to the whims of the local pointy-ball game.

Not sure why you want to watch BYU lose anyway.

There is also a concert after the game Saturday, so I think that plays into it being late. Why can't the BYU Utah game be at like 1 or 2 in the afternoon, instead of making RSL switch. RSL didn't schedule this game right during the BYU Utah game. BYU and Utah scheduled their game during the RSL game.

No need to switch. DVR the other game.
