Chivas USA held its second ‘Practice in the Community’ of 2010 at Veterans Soccer Complex in Pomona on Tuesday afternoon before hundreds of local fans.

Chivas USA President and CEO Shawn Hunter attended the event and thanked all the hundreds of fans that showed up at the event.

It was the first time that Chivas USA has a Practice in the Community in Pomona.

The event, which was hosted by the City of Pomona, included a practice session of Chivas USA’s first-team squad, followed by an opportunity for fans to take photos, get autographs and meet players. The June 15 practice  took place at Veterans Soccer Complex in Pomona.

The event, the second in series of training sessions that Chivas USA holds each month across Southern California, gave fans the unique opportunity, free of cost, to come out and watch, up close, the practice session of a professional soccer team. Pictures of the event can be found here.
