Admission for you is $10 and your dog $5 with the proceeds for the latter going to local animal groups:
At halftime of the match, a “Best In Show” competition will be held to award the biggest K-9 Galaxy fan. The competition is open to all dogs in attendance and the winner will receive a 2016 LA Galaxy Jersey and Galaxy Puppy Pack courtesy of the Galaxy Team Store.
On the East side of the stadium, there will be a dedicated area for dogs and puppies. For safety purposes, dog owners will be required to provide up-to-date shot and vaccination records for their animal to be granted stadium access.
Parking is free and $2 beers and tacos are available.
