What’s On in Los Angeles 2/25 – 3/3

Welcome to the newest addition of Fandomental activities. We’ve often seen folks asking what there is to do in cities that doesn’t involve drinking or the club scene… but is still within the realm of affordability. Fear not, fellow Fandomentals! Well, at least those of you living in Los Angeles. We’re rolling out a Fandomental curated weekly list of events that range from culture to sports and fit several budgets. As we continue to hone and fine-tune this list, look for other “weekly suggestions” to pop up for a city near you!

 

Sports

MLS

LA Galaxy

The Galaxy are back with a new head coach in Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who replaces the late Sigi Schmid. Their season opener is against the Chicago Fire at the Dignity Health Sports Park (f.k.a Stubhub Center), on Saturday, March 2, at 5:00 pm. Tickets range from General Admission at $30 on up. If you plan to go, get a move on, many tickets are already gone!

LAFC

The LAFC kick off their second ever season against Kansas City Sporting at their new Banc of California stadium, on Sunday, March 3, at 5:30 pm. Tickets remaining for this game are a little pricier than the Galaxy, with the lowest currently available via resale starting at $48.

NBA

LA Lakers

Lakers fans have two home games (from the STAPLES Center) to choose from this week. First, the Lakers take on the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday, February 27, at 7:30 pm. Then the Lakers face the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, March 2, at 7:30 pm PST. Prices for tickets start at $83 and are definitely on the high end of the budget list for the week.

LA Clippers

Like with the Lakers, Clippers fans have a choice of two homes games (also from the STAPLES Center) this week. Starting on Monday, February 25, at 7:30 pm the Clippers will take on Dallas Mavericks. Their second game will see them play the New York Knicks on Sunday, March 3, at 7:30 pm. Clippers tickets start far below the eye-watering $83 tag seen for the Lakers. You can currently grab upper-level seats for as low as $15.
