HANGING WITH LOS ANGELES' SOCCER SUPERFANS



Written by Garrett Crook

The LA Galaxy were playing Club Tijuana in their equivalent of the UEFA Cup. Luckily, there was no cross-boarder hooliganism on show.

Most soccer fans in Los Angeles are, and always have been, Latino. The majority of supporters had travelled from nearby neighbourhoods, like Compton, Wilmington and Long Beach, so it was a bit of a family affair. But with more Miller Lite and Marijuana.

 The parking lot of the stadium is one of the few places in LA where you can get totally shit-hammered on your own booze, which was fantastic.

Then some football happened.

At one point, Tijuana's fans rushed an empty section of the stadium, got partially-naked, and chanted non-stop for the next hour. I think it finished 1-0 Galaxy.
