Soccer is the world’s most popular sport. In fact it’s so exciting to watch live that fans break into song and communal celebration. Today’s Groupon to see Chivas USA puts you in the center of the MLS action at the Home Depot Center for up to three games for only $19 per game (normally $45 with taxes and fees). In preferred stadium seating, you’ll have the perfect view of every slide tackle and bicycle kick at your choice of the three matches listed above.
The arc of a soccer ball soaring across the sky is a breathtaking spectacle. It is especially breathtaking when kicked by Chivas stars Sacha Kljestan, Ante Razov, Jonathan Bornstein, or Jesse Marsch. Chivas fans relish well-timed passes, impenetrable defense, perfectly executed corners, and carding the referee for foul play in the parking lot after the game. Get your Groupon and try not to get into too much trouble.
Though Yelpers warn that you can expect to pay a bit for parking at the Home Depot Center, a 3.5 rating and enthusiastic reviews attest to the up-close excitement you’ll experience watching Chivas USA:
> * As many people have said, there is an intimacy with this stadium because it was built strictly for soccer, so every seat is pretty much a good one. – Edward K. > * The Sounders vs. Chivas game was a blast. The facilities were also really nice. First off, all parking seems to be very close to the park which is a major plus in my book. – Bri D. > * It may very well be the nicest facility I have ever been to. The layout and the sight lines are incredible, the atmosphere was tremendous and it’s very convenient from a bunch of freeways and is easy to get into and easy and quick to get out. – Brandon S.
A recent study published in the Modern American Soccer Journal reports that while soccer’s popularity in the United States has dramatically increased in the last 20 years, it is still less popular here than in the rest of the world. The sport’s devotees, who understand its true beauty, will do anything to educate Americans until soccer’s popularity in the States is greater than anywhere else in the world. Anything! To that end, they’ve prepared a crash course on soccer-fan etiquette for those new to the world’s greatest sport:
* Keep in mind that soccer bats are not wooden sticks—instead players use their legs at bats.
* While cowboy boots are not explicitly banned, you should refrain from wearing spurs.
* Consider leaving smaller pets (hamster or cockatoo) inside your purse or pockets.
* Be considerate of others. Shave your forearms. * Bring enough butter to share with everyone.
