The Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) announced an extension today of their partnership to promote the ease and convenience of taking the Expo Line or Silver Line to all LAFC matches at Banc of California Stadium.
“This is exciting and important for LAFC to continue our partnership with Metro,” said LAFC President and Co-Owner Tom Penn. “With Metro, we are able to enhance the LAFC match-day experience by providing quick, convenient and cost-effective ways to access Banc of California Stadium.”
LAFC and Metro enjoyed an incredible partnership during the Club’s inaugural season in 2018. This extension demonstrates a renewed dedication to highlighting the ease of using public transit to get directly to the stadium from the Metro Expo Line and Silver Line while avoiding traffic along the way. Joining forces for every home match to enhance the soccer fan experience on light rail, the partnership also features a new 2019-20 marketing campaign that includes a “Go Metro to Banc of California Stadium” commercial featuring players Tyler Miller, Walker Zimmerman, Latif Blessing and Eduard Atuesta. The commercial will be shown in-stadium for the remainder of the 2019 season and in to 2020.
As part of the partnership, LAFC fans and supporters who go Metro can receive a 10-percent discount on all hats at LAFC HQ, the Club’s team store, by showing their TAP cards at checkout.
“We’re excited to renew our partnership with LAFC and to offer fans on gamedays an affordable, stress-free and, above all, fun way to get to the stadium,” said Metro Board Chair and City of Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts. “And we’re thrilled to help fans cheer this team on as they close in on what we hope will be their first MLS Cup title!”
