The LA Galaxy organization have taken a solid step forward towards making the live experience more inclusive. This morning the club announced a partnership with Scottish organizers On the Ball to stock complimentary feminine hygiene products inside the Dignity Healthy Sports Park restrooms, the first of its kind in MLS and American professional sports.
“The LA Galaxy and Dignity Health Sports Park are committed to providing the best experience for the hundreds of thousands of fans that come through our gates each year,” DHSP General Manager Katie Pandolfo explained in a statement. “We’re always looking to innovate our fan experience and this landmark partnership is testament to that.”
“We are delighted that LA Galaxy are pledging their support for female soccer fans with the On The Ball campaign,” adds On The Ball co-founder Mikaela McKinley. “Making period products readily available and free of charge in soccer stadiums is a real trailblazer move and we hope other clubs in the US will now follow suit. We have 66 football clubs across the UK involved in our campaign but having worldwide support is vital and we can’t thank those at LA Galaxy enough for taking this forward thinking step for their fans.”
LA open the season March 2nd vs. the Chicago Fire.
