And we’re back! After two consecutive road games, Chivas USA returns to The Home Depot Center this Saturday to face Real Salt Lake. So if you’re coming to the game tomorrow, check out five fun things going down in the stadium:

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE KIDS: No professional soccer player got to where they are today without the help of youth soccer programs. So tomorrow night, we will be honoring our local youth soccer partners with all their players in attendance for Youth Soccer Night. Also, our Community Relations Team will be hosting Children’s Cancer Awareness Night. Before the match, Chivas USA goalkeeper and MLS W.O.R.K.S Ambassador Dan Kennedy will be welcoming two cancer survivors, Drew (11) and Brooke (8).

FREE FOOD: Who doesn’t love free food? Especially when it’s über good and free! The big question now is, where can you find it? Chivas USA will be sponsoring Supporter Group tailgates, which means there’s a party with the Union Ultras and the Black Army. Head over to the north side of the stadium to join the Ultras or the northeast side to join the Black Army. Also, help the Black Army support the Los Angeles Food Bank by bringing donations to their tailgate area.

CRUSH THE CROSSBAR: We know it’s been a tough season, but once the clock hits 12 a.m. on January 1, 2013, it will be a new year, meaning, we’ve turned the page on 2012 and are ready for a new season. So why not continue supporting your Chivas USA in 2013? If you’re already a Season Seat Holder, your last chance to get your 2013 seats at 2012 prices is at the game! Stop by the Guest Services tent located at the top of Section 117 and talk to Laura or Sally to renew for 2013. Also, Saturday is your final opportunity to sign-up to win your seats for free! Enter the Crush the Crossbar Challenge, and if you hit the crossbar from the 18-yard line, you get your 2013 season seat for FREE.

CHIVAGIRLS OR CHIVAFIGHTER?: Who’s more popular? ChivaGirls or ChivaFighter? You tell us! Tweet @cdchivasusa your pictures with either the ChivaGirls or with the almighty ChivaFighter in ChivaTown and we’ll find out who has your vote. Once you get inside the stadium, you won’t want to miss the ChivaGirls performance at halftime! Think you know everything about the girls? Check out their bios by clicking here. And don’t miss out on the ChivaGirl of the Week!

MISSING OUR DOUGHNUTS: Understandable! We’ve had one home game in the past six games. And like a fan once said, “y’all are looking quite skinny lately.” So what can make it better? A box of free Krispy Kreme Doughnuts! After every Chivas USA home win, fans can take their ticket stub to a participating Krispy Kreme Doughnuts location (see below) and get half a dozen free doughnuts. If you get doughnuts, don’t forget to tweet your pictures to @cdchivasusa using the hashtag #WeGotDoughnuts.
