Has there ever been an MLS club who has made as much noise as LAFC prior to even having an actual team? The Gold and Black have been relentless in their endeavor. From a youth academy to hosting the Mexican National team in Los Angeles to their notoriously loud and ever-growing fanbase, the club has built a rock solid foundation for their upcoming inaugural season. Over the weekend they brazenly flexed the club’s identity through the ‘Black and Gold Rally’.

Set in the heart of Downtown LA’s arts district, hundreds of fans converged for the festivities which included food, drinks music, live art, and chants…tons and tons of chants. The rally also marked the announcement of LAFC’s previously separate supporters groups uniting under the ‘3252’ banner. The moniker derives from the 3,252 standing room only supporters section at the soon-to-be-built Banc of Calfornia Stadium, which LAFC will call home.
