NORTHRIDGE, Calif. -
Cal State Northridge fans are invited to attend CSUN Night at
the LA Galaxy on Saturday, Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m. The LA Galaxy will
host the Vancouver Whitecaps at the Home Depot Center in a MLS
regular season match.
This special night is offered to all CSUN fans to support Matador Men’s Soccer team alumnus Sean Franklin (2008), as he and the LA Galaxy press on toward the MLS playoffs. The first 250 fans that purchase these special sideline seating discounted tickets, located in section 136, will have an opportunity to attend an autograph session with Sean Franklin post-match at the Home Depot Center.
Franklin, in his fourth MLS season, was named the 2008 MLS Rookie of the Year for his defensive work and has been called up to the U.S. National Team twice, making his debut for his country on January 22, 2011 by playing all 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw against Chile.
He has started to come into his own in the offensive strategy for the Galaxy, as evidenced by his six assists in 2010 and his four goals and two assists this season. All four scores in his career have come in 2011, with half of that total coming in his most recent match, a 2-2 draw with Sporting Kansas City on September 5.
The four-year standout for the Matadors was taken with the fourth overall pick in the 2008 and was a three-time All-Big West First Team selection while at CSUN. His most recent accolade came when he was named to the 2011 MLS All-Star Game First XI.
