How much do LAFC vs LA Galaxy 2022 play-off game tickets cost? Where can you buy them?
Anticipation is on the rise ahead of Thursday’s All-LA Western Conference semi-final and so is the demand for tickets.
There have been a total of 15 installments of the Los Angeles soccer derby, or El Tráfico, as it is known, but Thursday’s meeting will be only the second time that the two teams have met in the MLS play-offs - with the winners heading on into the Western Conference final.
If Thursday’s game is anything like the epic semi-final from three years ago, then no one will be left disappointed. LAFC and the LA Galaxy found themselves at the same venue and at exactly the same stage in October 2019 - they played out a mesmerizing encounter which produced eight goals and is widely considered to be the best MLS game ever witnessed. LAFC won 5-3 and advanced to the final but were defeated by the eventual champions, Seattle Sounders.
The memory of that semi-final is still fresh in the minds of the handful of players who are still on the books, and especially the fans. Understandably, demand for tickets to watch the game is high.
