Phew! A week and half since our last home game flew by quick! But the near month that Chivas USA is going to be away, is going to pass by so slow. So come join the Goats as they take on Portland Timbers this Wednesday, July 18 at 1pm at The Home Depot Center. Think you know what you can find in and around the stadium? Guess again! Keep reading and find out what you’ll find new in tomorrow’s game!

THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN! There’s a saying that goes “if the mountain doesn’t come to you, go to the mountain,” and that’s just what Ringling Brothers Circus is doing! Join us in ChivaTown as Ringling Brother clowns come down to cheer on your Chivas USA and give you pretty awesome prizes.

BEAT CHIVAFIGHTER: Think you can beat the almighty ChivaFighter in arm wrestling? Then come find him in his booth in ChivaTown where he’ll be searching for arm wrestling opponents. If you win, not only will you get a prize, but you’ll also earn bragging rights with your friends. Who wins ChivaFighter in arm wrestling? Watch as defender Rauwshan McKenzie took a shot at ChivaFighter in arm wrestling:

Tough task so… good luck!

CHIVAGIRLS: Catch all the ChivaGirls in their interactive stations in ChivaTown! Look for their booth and you’ll be able to make posters for the team, your favorite player or ChivaGirl. There will also be face painting and since it’s going to be a hot one (speaking about weather, guys), there will also be a sun block application station! Once you get inside the stadium, don’t forget to catch their performance at halftime! Think you know everything about the girls? Check out their biographies by clicking here. And don’t miss out on the ChivaGirl of the Week!

PUPPIES!!! Who doesn’t love puppies? Oh, right, allergies! But other than that, cute and adorable little puppies will be joining the Red-and-White this Wednesday as Beneful activates as sponsor for this game. So keep your eyes open during halftime (we know the sun might be a little bright) and pick your favorite puppy. Remember, if they say ‘woof,’ that means ‘Go Chivas!’

MISSING OUR DONUTS! Geez… we’re almost hitting the one month mark of no free donuts, right? So, what can we do? We can cheer on the team by yelling ‘We want donuts’ when it comes up in the field screens (trust us, they want free donuts, too). Remember, for every Chivas USA home win, assisting fans with a valid ticket stub get half a dozen free donuts from participating Krispy Kreme locations (see below). So if we do get donuts, don’t forget to tweet us your pictures to @cdchivasusa using the hashtag #WeGotDonuts and we might just retweet it…while we sit in our offices… with no donuts…
