Soccer, like the metric system, is full of merit and is immensely popular abroad. For $22, today's Groupon gets you a corner ticket to any regular-season LA Galaxy home game, a $50 value. There is no purchase limit on today's deal, so buy as many tickets as you like in seating sections 125–127, ideal for all the can't-miss, corner-kicking action.
Buy enough for friends, family, or a sagging high school baseball team in need of any ball-related inspiration; or just purchase every seat and fill them all with life-size cardboard cutouts of yourself. The season opens on March 27 with a game at The Home Depot Center against the New England Revolution and closes on October 24 against FC Dallas.
Soccer, the world’s most popular sport, is so significant because of its poetic simplicity: no hoops, pads, sticks, or T-shirt guns that blast out shaving cream. No other sport combines the acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil with the raw physicality of golf. Revel in the unadulterated thrill of things bouncing off heads and the exhilaration of being unable to use your hands. Email your Groupon info by Friday, March 12, to receive your ticket(s) by Saturday, March 20.
Valid for regular season only; no playoff games.
Ticketmaster reviewers give the LA Galaxy 4.2 stars. Here's what fans are saying about previous games:
- It was a nail-bitter [sic], heart-stopping and incredibly awesome game. It is what soccer fans want to see when we go to a game. – GALACHAMPS
- Sometimes David Beckham plays, and sometimes he doesn't! But either way, the games are fun, any seat in [The Home Depot Center] is great, and the stadium is new and very nice. – sun8snow
- I took three friends who are not soccer friendly. I left with four excited people. – tucsonson
