Los Angeles has been home to an MLS franchise for about twenty years. The Los Angeles Galaxy has always played in Carson, but the MLF felt it was not getting enough of a fanbase from Angelenos as they felt they should have. Now, the Los Angeles Football Club is the league’s 23rd expansion franchise—set to play its games in the heart of Los Angeles.
LAFC’s new home is right next to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and a short walk away from USC’s campus. The Wings of Troy is a fan group on campus that supports LAFC. They play pick up soccer every Monday night around the USC Village. Noah Schwartz is the team president and has made an inspired attempt to get many students to join.
“First and foremost is through social media. I use Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, everything like that,” Schwartz said. “The second is word of mouth.”
Schwartz has detailed that the club is growing on campus and many in the club would agree.
Derrick Adomian another Wings of Troy member had this to say, “I love to chant, to sing, everything like that. I think it’s gonna be a great time.”

LAFC had their first six games on the road. They have finished with a 4-0-2 start. Now, the team is 5-1-2, going 1-1-0 at home and good enough for second place in the Western Conference. With their home games so close to USC, it looks as if these Trojans are going to support their new team with full spirits.
