Who says only the First Team has a SuperClásico battle? The battle also extends to the club’s Front Office as well as the Supporter Groups. And tonight, the final BarraClásico of the season will be disputed in The Home Depot Center’s Field 5 starting at 6pm.

Tonight’s BarraClásico will kick-off with Chivas USA’s Front Office Staff going for the third win of the season against LA Galaxy Front Office. The team led by Ticket Operations Coordinator Asis Chale defeated the Galactic Front Office 2-1 in the first meet, then 3-2 in the second match. This year’s top goal scorer has been Promotions Coordinator Kevin Ramirez, helping the squad with two goals.

Kevin spoke to before tonight's exciting match:

The BarraClásico will then continue as Chivas USA Supporter Group Black Army 1850 will look for their first win of the season against the LA Riot Squad. Speaking of which, if you will be in tonight’s BarraClásico, make sure to stop by the Black Army’s tent and say “I am a Goat,” in order to be entered in a raffle to win Goat swag.

The Union Ultras will then close the night as their battle with the Angel City Brigade is tied 1-1. The winner of tonight’s match between the two will take the SuperClásico Supporter’s Trophy that will be presented to the winning supporter group before the First Teams’ battle on Sunday, August 12.
