The White House

President Barack Obama’s term will officially come to a close on Friday, with the nation’s 44th Commander-in-Chief ending his two terms in office having been visited seven times by MLS Cup champions.


The LA Galaxy made a habit of visiting Obama, taking trips to the White House after winning MLS Cup 2011, 2012 and 2014. Four other teams – Columbus Crew, Real Salt Lake, Colorado Rapids and Sporting Kansas City – visited the White House during one of Obama’s two terms, while the 2015 MLS Cup champion Portland Timbers did not get a chance to be honored at the White House by Obama following their 2015 MLS Cup title.
