Chivas USA’s picture day

By Olivia Cervantes

Just like in elementary and middle school, it’s a day that everyone prepares for: picture day. Chivas USA players, team staff and front office kicked off the morning with the annual photo session.

A majority of players began arriving early to prepare for the shoot. Directed by Creative Services Manager Richard “Rusty” Navarrette, players lined up to take their headshots and special marketing photos. Midfielder Edgar Mejia was one of the few players that showed his gameday face, screaming ‘Goal!’ for one of the photos.

Taking no direction in the shoot, head coach Chelis knew exactly what to do, posing perfectly in every photo.

After the photo session, the team headed to the field to continue preseason training. The Red-and-White will host their fourth scrimmage of the year this Saturday, Feb. 9 against Korean squad Gangwon FC at The Home Depot Center’s Field 6 at 11:30 am.

Fans are encouraged to come out and support the goats; parking and entry are free!
