Whether it’s isolating themselves from the rest of the group or listening to their favorite song, Chivas USA players have different rituals leading up to gameday. Aside from listening to salsa, merengue, reggaeton and electronic music on the way to a game and in the locker room, midfielder Miller Bolaños has carried out a ritual throughout his career that helps him do his best on the field.

 “I usually put the cleats that I’m going to use on the day of the game in my closet the day before and I put an image of the Virgin Mary in them. Once I’m in the locker room, I’ll kiss both shoes and then put them on before going out to the field.”

Unlike some professionals, Bolaños enjoys the company of his teammates before a game, helping him concentrate on the game.

Make sure to come out and see Miller Bolaños and the rest of Chivas USA take on FC Dallas this Sunday at 2pm PT at The Home Depot Center. Click here to purchase your tickets; for all your day-of-game needs, follow Chivas USA’s official gameday Twitter feed: @ChivasGameday

Chivas USA announced today the acquisition of midfielder Eric Avila in exchange for Nick LaBrocca. Avila joined the Goats for the start of training camp last Friday and has since been training with the club.

Although young, Avila brings vast experience to Chivas USA, spending four seasons with FC Dallas (2008-2011) and two with Toronto FC (2011-2012), playing a total of 96 games (33 starts), notching five goals and adding 11 assists to his career. With Ryan Smith no longer with the club, Avila will be fighting for a spot in the midfield against Frenchman Laurent Courtois.

Avila is not a stranger to The Home Depot Center; he joined Chivas USA’s U19 squad back in 2005 before he enrolled in UC Santa Barbara. In his first year with the Gauchos, Avila helped UCSB win their first national after scoring the game-winning goal in the Division I National Championship match.

With Chivas USA, fans can expect Avila to score at least one goal; the San Diego native has scored one goal every year since 2009. How many goals will he score with the Red-and-White in 2013?
