Not all teams give their fans the opportunity to meet, hang out and have a drink with the club head coach. On Saturday evening, Chivas USA and supporter group Union Ultras did just that, hosting the first ‘Chelas with Chelis’ in Pacoima.

Just a few hours after Chivas USA earned a 5-1 victory over the LA Blues, the Red-and-White coach Jose Luis Sanchez Solá joined the Ultras and the ChivaFighter for the ultimate fan experience. Fans had the opportunity to meet, take pictures and have tacos with Chelis. Many took the opportunity the talk to Chelis about team performance and what they could expect in the new season.

In order to participate, interested fans needed to put a $40 down payment for a 2013 season seat. At the end of the event, the Union Ultras were able to recruit six new members that will be supporting the team in Section 101.

It was a day full of smiles as Chivas USA’s supporter group the Union Ultras held their first ‘Dia de los Reyes’ (Three Kings Day) Toy Giveaway on Sunday afternoon in Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Sun Valley.

Before the event, CDChivasUSA.com spoke with Ultras representatives, who estimated that they had around toys for about 100+ kids. But on Friday and Saturday night, the Ultras began gathering more toys and gifts for the event, including donations from Chivas USA. On the big day, over 400 children were given a gift to celebrate the holiday.

“It was nice to see so many children smiling and happy,” said Ultras representative Julio Ramos. Also in attendance, the infamous ChivaFighter helped the Ultras put those smiles on children’s’ faces as he interacted with the kids and their families.  Click here to view a gallery of the event.
