We're continuing to go global! Two new #MilesToEpicenter billboards went up this week - one in LA and one in Toronto.
Needless to say, the LA board - located just a mile away from the StubHub Center - did not make LA fans happy on social media.

Congratulations to our affiliate, Sacramento Republic FC, for advancing to the USL Pro finals!
On Saturday, Sacramento Republic FC faced LA Galaxy II in the semifinals. Thanks to Charlie Rugg, the Galaxy led 2-0 to end the first half. Quakes forward Adam Jahn who is on loan to Republic FC played the first 45 minutes.
Republic FC came out in the second half fighting – and it paid off. After two converted penalty kicks from Rodrigo Lopez, the match was knotted at 2-2 going into stoppage time. Lopez completed the comeback and finished off his hat trick by bending a free kick around the Galaxy’s wall into the back of the net. After the 3-2 win, Republic FC will advance to the USL Pro Championship, hosting Harrisburg City Islanders on Saturday, September 27 at 7:30 p.m.
