OMG! I know we already have that soccer field in Carson, but I'm sure we can get some professional soccer played at Farmer's Field! That would be amazing! I know there's no comparison here, but London has 5 pro teams in top flight! Doesn't mean we have to get a third team. But, we can play a game or two a season at Farmer's Field. That would make soccer fun and enjoyable to participate in as a fan. I know America loves its Basketball, Baseball and American Football, but there are Americans and plenty of Angelenos who have a deep love for Football/Soccer and to have the games conveniently played at Farmer's Field would make all the sense in the world! The world's greatest sport on the greatest stage
This is so exciting just thinking about it! If I had the money, I would put up a brand new soccer team, brand it and place it in DTLA. That stadium would fill up quicker than a line at the taco truck! I'm thoroughly convinced this would work. Now, can Chivas USA move their operations to Farmer's Field in 2014 and set up shop there? I know the city of Angels would be in favor of it. Could they get out of their lease in Carson? Let the Galaxy have that stadium and move one of the teams downtown. It makes all the sense in the world. We don't need another soccer only stadium. We don't have the market to support it. But, we can move one of our two pro MLS teams to Farmer's Field in 2014. I know there will be many fans who will support this move. The question is, can the team financially and logistically pull it off and move into Farmer's Field with the MLS' and AEG's stamp of approval? I think so, but I hope the experts agree
This gives us one more idea to think about. I can imagine the fans packed into LA Live before and after the games and I'll bring my earplugs with me if there are vuvuzelas, but I won't mind those if we can get the team playing downtown. Of course, we'll sing chants from LA Live to Farmer's Field. I can already feel the excitement! You don't have to go to Europe or Latin America for this. We can do this right here in downtown L.A., right here at Farmer's Field!
