Chivas USA returns to The Home Depot Center to face Canadian club Vancouver Whitecaps tomorrow at 7:30pm as part of the 17th match of the season for the Goats. We give you the low down on what you can find in and around the stadium today.

ARMED FORCES APPRECIATION NIGHT: Nothing will ever be enough to show our appreciation for those hard working men and women who serve in the United States Armed Forces. So in an effort of appreciation, make sure to look for staff members, as we will all be wearing special buttons saluting our troops. At ChivaTown, you can visit Habitat for Humanity’s tent, who is working with armed forces to build their homes here in the United States. Also, once you’re in the stadium and the game is about to kick-off, you won’t be able to miss the gigantic American flag in the field that will be held by U.S. Veterans. To all our Armed Forces readers, we salute you!

FREEBIES: We don’t know about you guys, but, we love freebies. So come down to ChivaTown and visit our sponsor booths! It’s going to be a hot one this Saturday, so make sure to head over to Clamato’s booth and cool down with a free sample. And in case you’re coming down with the munchies, don’t worry; Minsa tortillas will also be giving away free samples! You can catch this and more only at ChivaTown!

CASEY’S BIRTHDAY: Where else would you celebrate Casey Townsend’s birthday OTHER than at The Home Depot Center? Yup, that’s what we thought. This Saturday will be the 2012 MLS SuperDraft pick’s 23rd birthday, so come one out, and if you see him, say happy birthday! Remember, he scored the first goal of the year for Chivas that also gave us our first three points.

CHIVAGIRLS: Meet the ChivaGirls before every game at ChivaTown! Once 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!

MISSING OUR DOUGHNUTS! Okay, okay. We just got donuts a few weeks ago, but you can never have too much good stuff, right? And you must admit, those Krispy Kreme donuts are pretty darn good. And for every Chivas USA home win, assisting fans get half a dozen free donuts from participating Krispy Kreme locations (see below). Don’t forget to save your ticket stub; you must present it when obtaining your free donuts!
