Successful first ‘Chelas with Chelis’

By Olivia Cervantes

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.
