A Preseason Glimpse of the Future

A limited amount of The 3252 crammed the bleachers to support LAFC as it played a final scheduled preseason match Sunday at UCLA.

The 3252 marched through the UCLA campus, began singing songs of support before the players took the pitch for warm-ups, and did not stop until LAFC left for the locker rooms. 

LAFC remains undefeated this preseason earning a 4-4 draw with the Vancouver Whitecaps. Carlos Vela scored twice, the first goal a beautiful free kick to the top right corner out of reach of Vancouver’s keeper Brian Rowe. The second a successful penalty kick following a hard foul on Diego Rossi in the penalty area.

Latif Blessing scored at the beginning of the second half and the final score came via a Vancouver own goal.

LAFC head coach Bob Bradley said the presence of the 3252 created a winning atmosphere.

“We’ve got real supporters and real passion,” Bradley said. “They brought their 'A' game and that’s just the start.”
