LAS VEGAS, NV- Chivas USA arrived and trained in Las Vegas Thursday afternoon ahead of Friday’s match against Colorado Rapids at Sam Boyd Stadium.

The team was in good spirits as they arrived at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas for training where a group of fans came out to watch practice. Led by Coach Jose Luis Sanchez Solá, also known as “El Chelis,” Chivas continued working on what coach has focused since start of preseason: finishing plays.

To finalize training, Coach Chelis split the group up into two squads for a scrimmage: MLS veterans against rookies. The scrimmage came with a twist; defender Bobby Burling was at goal for the veterans and midfielder Edgar Mejia for the rookies while goalkeeper Dan Kennedy played forward. At the end of the match, the veterans took the victory over the rookies; Kennedy scored two goals for the winning team.

The Red-and-White will face Colorado at 7:30 pm at Sam Boyd Stadium. Fans not attending the game can follow match updates on our Twitter feed: @cdchivasusa

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.

(Stay tuned for video)

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.
