Real Salt Lake to Host Hispanic Heritage Night on September 29
SANDY, Utah - Real Salt Lake today announced plans and events surrounding its Hispanic Heritage Night taking place on September 29 in the lead up to the Club's match against the LA Galaxy at 7:30 p.m. MT. Festivities will kick off one week in advance with RSL goalkeeper and Mexican National Team member David Ochoa making a donation to local soccer club Cobras FC at Monroe Elementary School in West Valley City on Wednesday, September 22 at 6:30 p.m. MT.
September 29 will mark the Club's first-ever Hispanic Heritage Night to celebrate Utah's vast Hispanic community and culture that continues to fuel the sport's culture in Utah.
Spanish speaking fans can find coverage of Real Salt Lake on La Gran 102.3 radio, as well as television coverage on Telemundo (digital channel 20) and Univision (digital channel 32).
Tickets to the Club's match on September 29 start at just $28 and can be purchased by visiting one of the 11 Victor's Tires locations across the Wasatch Front or at local soccer specific store Castro Sports located inside Valley Fair Mall in West Valley City. Fans seeking tickets to the match can find a storefront banner containing a QR code at each of the Victor's Tires locations and Castro Sports that can be scanned with a mobile device that will direct to a ticket purchase link.
On Wednesday, September 22, RSL goalkeeper and Mexican National Team member David Ochoa together with RSL Community will present a donation of soccer equipment such as soccer balls, cones and pinnies among other items to local youth soccer club Cobras FC. Through Every Save Makes a Difference - an MLS Works program where club-selected beneficiaries receive donations for every save made during a TUDN or Univision broadcast - gear was able to be donated through saves made by RSL goalkeepers during its matches against Houston Dynamo FC on June 26 and FC Dallas on September 4 which totaled $1,500.
Additionally, on September 29 from 3:45 - 6:00 p.m. MT, RSL will host a career fair at Rio Tinto Stadium and welcome 500 Latinos In Action students from Utah to Rio Tinto Stadium to speak with community members who are professionals in their respective fields. Representatives from RSL will also be in attendance to speak with the students.
Local soccer clubs Cobras FC, Provo Athletic Club and La Roca will be participating in the pregame ceremony on the field. And, during halftime members of the Esperanza Elementary School Mariachi band will perform. Additionally, locally owned food trucks Amkha, San Diablo Churros and Portnea will be available on The Plaza at Rio Tinto Stadium ahead of the match.
