This past weekend, Chivas USA culminated its 5th year of Chivas at the Park Soccer Clinics. As a result of the program, 23,000 boys and girls in the Los Angeles area received affordable soccer training and learned how to live healthier lifestyles. Chivas USA is looking forward to continuing to work with the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and the Mayor’s Office next year. Thanks to everyone that participated and made these clinics so successful!

Yet another exciting edition of the BarraClásico was disputed last night ahead of this Sunday’s SuperClásico match. For those that don’t know, the BarraClásico is a trio of games between Chivas USA and LA Galaxy Front Office staff and Supporter Groups.
Chivas USA’s Front Office took yet ANOTHER win last night, this time with a 4-3 final score. It was the Marketing Department’s time to shine as Promotions Coordinator and Front Office top goal scorer Kevin Ramirez scored his two goals (adding to the two he scored in previous editions); Street Team member Jesus also scored a pair for the Front Office adding to his two goals he counted with.
Meanwhile, Black Army 1850 was looking for their first victory of the year against the LA Riot Squad. The match was looking like a 1-1 draw (BA goal scored by Angel Mendoza), but the Galactic supporters took the 2-1 victory in the last minutes.
Last match of the day was between Union Ultras and the Angel City Brigade. The Ultras had lost their first match 1-0, but took a 3-1 victory in the second. The third match ended in a 1-1 draw, but due to goal aggregate that BOTH teams agreed on, the Ultras took the Supporters Trophy.
Joining the Supporters, Chivas USA Forward and Captain Alejandro Moreno as well as Cesar Romero were in attendance last night. On behalf of Chivas USA, we’d like to thank everyone who came out to support our club. Now it’s on to getting the win the win this Sunday! Arriba las Chivas!
There are four days left to the Meet the Team event… so do you know when the event is? It’s this upcoming Saturday, August 4th! If you haven’t prepared for the big day, head over to the Team LA store in The Home Depot Center to buy your 2012 season jersey, scarf or whatever you want the team to autograph! They will all be here waiting to meet YOU!
Remember this event is for Season Seat Holders ONLY. If you haven’t sent your RSVP, feel free to contact Gary Gomez at (310) 630-4581
We’re just five days away from you, our season seat holders, meeting our amazing team. In case you haven’t heard of the event (or if you’re not a season seat holder), our fans will be able to enjoy a nice afternoon with the team which includes (and is not limited to) chatting and taking pictures with the team.
Aside from being just five short days from the big event, we’re also very close to getting our fifth win against the LA Galaxy! If the Goats are able to earn their second win of the season against the Galaxy on Sunday, August 12, then the team will take home its second SuperClásico title in history (the last time the Red-and-White took home the trophy was back in 2007- so yes, it’s time we bring it back where it belongs).
