It was 2009 when we hosted our first party on the eve of MLS Cup. It was in Seattle and the night before Real Salt Lake played the LA Galaxy. We decided to organize a little get together with some friends (Ives, Shawn, Adam and Bruce). None of us really knew what to expect, but we wanted to hang out and have some dranks with the homies. The turnout that night exceeded any expectations that we collectively had. A bunch of friends came through to hang and we met a ton of people and made a whole bunch of new friends.
All these years later, we’re still holding down the night before MLS Cup. We’ve been lucky to do it in a handful of cities, and this year brought us back home to do it in LA. We have some new folks we do the party with, but the idea remains the same. Get our friends together to hang. Meet some new people. Make new friends. Celebrate the sport. Celebrate the league. Make great memories.
Many thanks to our EA SPORTS and KickTV family for being a part of this with us. Much respect to them! And much respect to all those that came by and supported. See you in 2015!!
