For those not lucky enough to snag a ticket to the U.S. men’s national soccer team’s game against Portugal on Sunday at 3 p.m., there is still a chance to enjoy the match-up with fellow soccer fanatics in the Southland.
The Los Angeles Galaxy is hosting a viewing party to see the U.S. take on Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of the Portuguese side at Lot 613 in downtown L.A.
Tickets to the event start at $30 with all proceeds benefiting the LA Galaxy Foundation. A charity auction will also be held where art pieces featuring the official World Cup ball will be sold off.
The event is set to last from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Going into the matchup, both teams are plagued with injuries. American striker Jozy Altidore out with an injured hamstring and Portuguese star Ronaldo plagued with knee problems.
But the U.S. team’s triumph over Ghana last week means that a win over Portugal will advance the team out of the group stage into the knockout round.

However, the Americans have a tough road ahead, facing a Portuguese team looking for redemption after a 4-0 loss to Germany.
Regardless of the outcome of the match, the U.S. will have their next match against Germany on June 26. The Galaxy has a viewing party planned at the Hermosa Beach Pier for the event.
