CARSON, Calif. (Tuesday, March 24, 2015) – The LA Galaxy and Angel City Brigade (ACB) announced today restored supporters’ game-day privileges during LA Galaxy matches for the remainder of the 2015 Major League Soccer season.
“Angel City Brigade has continued to demonstrate their full support of our team while keeping a positive and open dialogue with our club during some difficult circumstances,” LA Galaxy President Chris Klein said. “As ACB has found ways to support our club while respecting the fan code of conduct guidelines and sanctions, we want to acknowledge their unwavering dedication by providing the full resources to continue their support. We are thankful for the opportunity to collaborate with our fans and help create a top environment during Galaxy games going forward.”
ACB will have full supporters’ privileges, including streamers, flags, drums and additional resources beginning this Saturday for the Galaxy’s game on the road at RFK Stadium against D.C. United. The club will then take on Vancouver Whitecaps on the road April 4th before returning to StubHub Center for a match Sunday, April 12 against Seattle Sounders FC.
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with the LA Galaxy to lift the sanctions placed on our group,” said Vanessa Arias, ACB President. “We couldn’t be happier with the final outcome as it shows our voices are heard not only on the pitch but also resonate within the Galaxy organization. ACB would like to thank fans around our stadium and supporters across the league for their vast support in spreading awareness on this topic and commend our Brigade for staying united during this turbulent time. We look forward to getting back to business as usual”
LA Galaxy and ACB have worked collectively throughout the offseason and start of the 2015 campaign incorporating the group into various LA Galaxy Foundation community initiatives, building fan relations and providing improvements to the Galaxy game-day environment.
