The Los Angeles Galaxy soccer club will host its fourth Pride Night for LGBT fans on Saturday, June 24, at 7:30 at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., in a match against Sporting KC.

Robbie Rogers, an openly gay defender on the Galaxy who is recovering from injury, will host a meet and greet prior to the game for the first 50 VIP ticket buyers. A portion of the proceeds will go to the non-profit youth homeless shelter, Covenant House.

The team announced more details in a release:

Supporters that arrive early will receive a free #GalaxyPride rally towel, available to the first 15,000 fans inside StubHub Center. Early arrivers will also see Galaxy players prepare for the match in limited edition Pride warm-up tops, available for auction via the LA Galaxy Foundation. Rainbow corner flags, rainbow lights and rainbow confetti will be on display to compliment the evening’s festivities. Additional details will be announced leading up to the match.

Pride Night tickets start at $19.50, with a Pride Night scarf included in every fans’ purchase when they buy through LAGalaxy.com/Pride.

Covenant House has been chosen as the Community Partner of the Match. LA Galaxy and Covenant House California will host an in-game drive collecting essential toiletries such as deodorant, bar soap, body wash, shaving cream or toothpaste. Items will be collected outside each stadium entrance from 5:45 p.m. to 8 p.m.
