The Los Angeles Football Club, in its first season in the MLS, is holding Pride night, Saturday, June 30 at 5 p.m. vs. the Philadelphia Union at Banc of California Stadium.

LAFC will give away rainbow pins to the first 10,000 fans to enter the stadium.

The team will also have an honorary LGBTQ falconer, Pride corner flags, and the team’s fan club, the 3252, will coordinate a rainbow-themed tifo.

Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased here.

LAFC and the 3252 (named after the section the fans sit in) have been very LGBTQ-positive. After the team’s opening home match was marred by some fans chanting the gay slur “puto,” the team was aggressive in its response and welcoming to LGBTQ fans.

Sadly, “puto” was heard during the L.A. Galaxy Pride game May 30, so let’s hope some idiots don’t try the same at the LAFC game. If they do, the LAFC has indicated it will take action.
