Los Angeles Football Club are gearing up for their first-ever U.S. Open Cup game, which will take place on Wednesday at Banc of California Stadium against Fresno FC, and tickets for the match are officially for sale.
The team is offering $10 general admission tickets to the North End (aka The 3252 section) and $20 east side general admission tickets for the game. Find the listings on StubHub for the match.
The affordability of the tickets seems to indicate that LAFC know Open Cup games tend to not be well-attended, but that they want to bring people out for the game. It’s fitting with an apparent commitment from the club to take the knockout tournament seriously. In addition to press trickling out lavishing the competition, won by Bob Bradley and a handful of LAFC players in the past, the team has posted an extensive USOC page on their website, complete with plenty of history and background on the tournament. Definitely worth checking out — even diehards are bound to learn something there.
It may be a tough ask, but packing The Banc for a debut Open Cup game would be a pretty big statement about the team’s and fans’ interest in the tournament, and who knows? It could be the start of a big title run.
