After beginning their inaugural season with three road games, LAFC was at home, in the new Banc of California Stadium for a match with the Seattle Sounders FC. Their first home game came with the usual pomp and circumstance that’s to be expected.

Johnson was among the LAFC owners in attendance on Sunday. They sold-out crowd was treated to a close match, with Laurent Ciman putting in the only and game-winning goal.

Following the win, Johnson shared his experience and inside look at the environment at Banc of California Stadium.
