The first-ever visit to Southern California by Liverpool FC will see the club host a free fan fest at 7 p.m. July 26 at the Avalon Ballroom in Hollywood, the day before the Reds play Chelsea at the Rose Bowl.
From the press release:
The event, which will be open to over 1000 attendees, will feature a visit from Liverpool FC Ambassadors Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler, Gary McAllister and Legend Luis Garcia. The Legends will take part in a meet and greet with fans as well as an on stage Q&A, and a raffle hosted by LFCTV.
The evening will also feature a nod to Liverpool’s other greatest export, with a performance by a Beatles Tribute Band. A fitting homage to the famous Liverpudlians, given the Avalon Hollywood was the venue of their first ever West Coast performance in 1964.
ESPN has announced that it will televise all 21 ICC games live.
Failure is far more common than success as even the likes of top-tier soccer nations like Argentina, England and Mexico have discovered — and puts public frustration with the U.S. Men’s National Team into perspective.

With the U.S. scoring their record TV ratings so far in the tournament for the Ecuador game, tonight’s Copa America semifinal against Lionel Messi and Argentina is sure to produce even higher viewership.

Euro 2016 experienced more trouble from drunk crowds of rowdy mobs, many of them English, media outlets reported today, despite warnings from authorities of further possible action against England and Russia should their fans continue to cause issues.
These idiots are doing themselves, the sport or their nations no favors as authorities struggle to respond appropriately (and that’s putting it mildly).
Soccer has great potential to unite and more events like this laudable LA Galaxy stand are needed if the world is to overcome sad scenes like those we have seen in France in recent months.
For more read this week’s 100 Percent Soccer column (and yes, I’d much rather write about what’s happening on the field than off it).
Guess the oddsmakers took notice of Lionel Messi’s three goals in 19 minutes the other night.
