Los Angeles Football Club announced on Wednesday that their home stadium, Banc of California Stadium, will host a friendly between El Salvador and Guatemala, on March 6.

The game, featuring two fierce Central American rivals, will be the first international fixture at The Banc, ahead of the venue hosting a 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup doubleheader on June 25, which will include another Central American country, Honduras.

LAFC have one player who could be called up for this game, in new signing Rodolfo Zelaya, a Salvadoran international.

There are sizable Salvadoran and Guatemalan populations in Los Angeles, so I would expect ticket sales to be brisk. Said tickets are on sale for LAFC season-ticket holders now, and will go on sale to the general public on Friday at 10 am PT, at Ticketmaster, ticketon.com, stadium’s box office, select points of sale, or by phone at 1-800-668-8080.
