Travel light

Your LAFC or 3252 scarf may be seen as a target and potential trophy for those who do not understand our Shoulder to Shoulder supporter culture. Be aware that Dignity Health Sports Park enforces a clear bag policy.

Parking at DHSP: 

Look for lots 4A and 4B off University Drive Gate I (I as in India). Parking costs $20. Lots 4A and 4B are smaller lots so they may fill up quickly. Lot 7 is the next closest lot and is accessible via Gate H off Central Ave. 

AVOID lots 12, 13 and 3, especially if your vehicle has LAFC stickers or other identifying marks. 

Parking gates open at 4 p.m. aim to arrive as close to this as possible. Tailgating is not allowed at DHSP.


A majority of supporters will be in 226-227 and adjacent sections. We also anticipate many LAFC supporters throughout the mezzanine and the entire stadium. 

The section and seat number indicated on your ticket is your seat. Galaxy officials will not allow you to relocate once inside the venue. 

The 3252 does not handle ticketing. Exercise caution when buying from individuals online, scalpers and scam artists love these marquee match-ups. 


Embrace the Shoulder to Shoulder spirit while at the match, our primary mission is support LAFC and provide them with an unrivaled level of support. Sing and chant as if we were home but be mindful that the Galaxy have rules and guidelines that may prohibit standing in certain sections. 

Refrain from beer and water showers, Galaxy officials may remove you from the venue.

Follow the advice of The 3252 directors and supporter group leaders, who will be on site at various locations around the stadium. 

Shoulder to Shoulder

Stay in groups, especially when going to the restroom or to purchase food and drink.
