Los Angeles has a great new sports team — LAFC — and their new Banc of California Stadium in Exposition Park is easy to reach via the Expo Line, Silver Line or Metro Bus 81. Check out the video below featuring LAFC winger Latif Blessing for a quick primer on how to get to the stadium.
LAFC, btw, is faring very well for an expansion team. They’re in second place in Major League Soccer’s Western Conference headed into Tuesday night’s friendly against Borussia Dortmund and Saturday’s match against D.C. United. The regular season runs through October.
To get to Banc of California Stadium:
•Take the Expo Line to Expo Park/USC Station. From there it’s a short walk through the Rose Garden and past the California Science Museum.
•If you’re coming from the South Bay, consider taking the Silver Line to the 37th Street Transitway Station.
•Metro Bus 81 to 39th/Figueroa is another option — the 81 runs between Eagle Rock, DTLA and South Los Angeles.
As an added bonus for transit riding supporters: show your TAP card at any merchandise kiosk on game days or at LAFC HQ team store during store hours and receive a 10 percent discount on official LAFC hats!
