Comments Off on El Trafico at Rose Bowl postponed

Every December, the day when the Los Angeles Football Club schedule is announced, LAFC fans’ first team they look up to is their rivals LA Galaxy. When LAFC plays LA Galaxy on a specific date, LAFC fans will cancel other plans, or they may call off work to see their club play against their local rivals.


El Trafico is a special moment for both LAFC and Galaxy supporters. They want to witness a spectacular game of football and see their players play for the badge. As a result, LAFC’s Major League Soccer season opener versus crosstown rivals LA Galaxy scheduled to play on Saturday, February 25, at the Rose Bowl Stadium, has been canceled.  


Due to heavy rain, snow, and thunderstorms in the last few days. Now LAFC and Galaxy fans have to wait until Independence day, which is on July 4th


Yes, until the fourth of July, and both sides have to wait five months, all thanks to the weather here in California. A rare winter storm struck the Southern California mountains for the first time since the late 80s. Meanwhile, heavy rain flooded Los Angeles county, and people could not see the streets.


Although it’s been raining every year in Los Angeles, currently, this is one of the worst. For that reason, both LA clubs decided to postpone the game. 


LAFC put a statement via Twitter “Due to safety considerations resulting from inclement weather, our 2023 season opener at the Rose Bowl Stadium has been postponed to a later date. Tickets purchased for Saturday’s match will be honored for the rescheduled match date.”


It’s been a tough week, as the whole of Los Angeles wanted to experience an epic atmosphere between both sides. Since LAFC and the LA Galaxy are known for generating a good atmosphere. It would have been great seeing LAFC and Galaxy play at the Rose Bowl because of the size of the stadium. LAFC never played at the Rose Bowl, and it would have been great to see the District 9 Ultras waving the flags. But for now, El Trafico will have to wait. 

On the bright side, LAFC will open the 2023 MLS season against Portland Timbers this Saturday. In contrast, LA Galaxy travels to Dallas on March 4th to take on FC Dallas.
