LAFC and the LA Galaxy have joined to participate in the LA Charity FIFA Challenge on Sunday at 3 pm ET (12 pm PT) to raise awareness and money as the world continues battling the coronavirus pandemic and the COVID-19 disease.
As part of the event, two of eMLS's top competitors, LAFC’s Martin “RemiMartinn” Oregel and the Galaxy’s Giuseppe “The Godfather” Guastella, will face off in a home-and-away series on Sunday afternoon, a rematch of their quarterfinal clash at eMLS League Series Two in Portland back in February. The matches will be streamed live on the official Twitch accounts of both LAFC and the Galaxy, as well as the LAFC’s dedicated e-sports social media channels – Instagram @LAFCgaming and Twitter @LAFCgaming.
This weekend’s event will raise money for the Los Angeles Football Club Foundation and the LA Regional Food Bank. At this time, all donations to the LAFC Foundation will be used exclusively to support the fight against COVID-19. The LA Galaxy Foundation and Victoria Block are supporting the LA Regional Food Bank, which is working hard to meet the needs of those impacted by COVID-19, as well as individuals who typically need assistance.
