USL’s LA Galaxy II hosts annual Pups at Pitch charity match

United Soccer League franchise LA Galaxy II is set to host its second annual Pups at the Pitch charity event at StubHub Center.

The promotional night allows all fans to bring their furry friends into the stadium to watch LA Galaxy II, which is also the reserve team for Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy, take on Phoenix Rising FC.

While dogs enter for free, the club will be accepting donations to go towards supporting spcaLA, a local non-profit animal welfare organisation.

As part of the promotional evening, the first 1,000 fans that arrive to the game will be given an LA Galaxy II x Los Dos dog bandana.

Also included in the evening is a #PupsAtThePitch photograph contest in which four free match tickets are up for grabs. There will also be a ‘best in show’ dog competition during half time, which will be judged by the supporters.

The club states that those bringing dogs to the stadium are required to sign a waiver form, and informs fans that dog-specific areas will be set up on the North and East sides of the stadium and all dogs must remain on their leads.
