The L.A. Galaxy are the highest scoring team in MLS, and when fans walk through the gates at StubHub Center for Sunday’s sold-out game against New York City FC, they’ll get a chance to score too.
The first 12,000 fans to enter StubHub Center for Sunday’s noon matchup will receive half-off vouchers for Alaska Airlines flights to Mexico from LAX or Orange County. The voucher can be used for up to two travelers on the same reservation on trips to Puerto Vallarta or Los Cabos. Trips must be booked by Aug. 26 for travel from LAX to Los Cabos from Sept. 8 through Nov. 18 or from Orange County to Los Cabos or Puerto Vallarta from Oct. 8, 2015 to Nov. 18.
