MLS history! El Tráfico in the Rose Bowl set the single-game attendance record

MLS history!  El Tráfico in the Rose Bowl set the single-game attendance record

The Western Conference game was emotional from start to finish – and it ended with Los Angeles going six games unbeaten (2W-0L-4D). Boyd Golazo scored in the 26th minute before Puig’s goal in the 73rd minute canceled out Elie Sanchez’s equaliser.

“It was an exciting atmosphere,” Los Angeles coach and athletic director Greg Vanney said. “For me, personally, to go back to the Rose Bowl, to see it filled out, to take a second, and realize how far the league has come since we started it in ’96 to where it’s now at the level of two teams, the competition tonight, the quality of the players on the field – all of it.

“It’s just an amazing setting, incredible atmosphere and a great game that I think is as entertaining as these games always do.”

LAFC have now lost eight of their last 11 matches in all competitions, faltering after losing the CONCACAF Champions League final in early June. The crowd still resonates with black and gold.

“I just felt like it had to be,” LAFC coach Steve Cherundolo said. “It just felt like a playoff, a real game that mattered not just to the 22 players on the court, but to the 82,000 people here and around Los Angeles. It’s great and a great atmosphere for everyone who was here tonight.”
