LA Galaxy to Host Sixth Annual Pride Night
LA Galaxy will partner with Los Angeles LGBT Center for Pride Night, one of the longest-running Pride Nights in professional sports
AEG’s LA Galaxy will host their sixth annual Pride Night, one of the longest-running Pride Nights in professional sports, on Sunday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m. PT when the club hosts New England Revolution at Dignity Health Sports Park in a match presented by Spectrum SportsNet. The Galaxy will partner with the Los Angeles LGBT Center, the world’s largest LGBT organization, as part of its 50th anniversary celebration.
During Pride Night, the LA Galaxy and Dignity Health Sports Park will feature numerous elements to celebrate inclusion, including using in-stadium rainbow-themed corner flags, lights and confetti. Additionally, Rayvon Owen, American Idol Season 14 finalist and Center supporter, will sing the National Anthem during the pregame ceremonies.
LA Galaxy players will wear specialty rainbow jerseys during pregame warm ups, which will be available to fans through an auction. Fans can bid for their chance to win an autographed warm-up jersey by texting GALAXY to 52182 or by visiting here. All proceeds from the jerseys will benefit the LA Galaxy Foundation as they provide inclusive programming in the Los Angeles community.
The first 5,000 fans to enter the stadium on June 2 will receive a mini LA Galaxy Pride Night scarf.
A special Pride Night ticket package is available, offering fans a ticket to the game and an exclusive Pride Night fanny pack designed with rainbow-colored straps. Proceeds from the LA Galaxy Pride Night ticket packages will be donated to the LGBT Center. To access the Pride Night ticket package, visit www.lagalaxy.com/pride.
For STMs and fans that did not purchase the Pride ticket offer, LAGF will also be selling the fanny packs at the LAGF booth in SoccerFest.
In 2014, the LA Galaxy hosted its first Pride Night at Dignity Health Sports Park, starting the tradition that has led to six years celebrating the LGBTQ community, marking one of the longest consecutive Pride Night celebrations hosted by a professional sports team.
