The LA Riot Squad
Who are the LA Riot Squad?
The LA Riot Squad’s origins date back to 2001. After a loss in the 2001 MLS Cup, then-goalkeeper Kevin “El Gato” Hartman asked fans to create a supporter group of at least 100 members. In return, the group would be rewarded with a keg of beer. It would be up to these fans to stand, chant and cheer for the LA Galaxy at every home match. The LA Riot Squad’s name is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Los Angeles Riots of 1992. According to their website, “We are here to hang with friends and have a few beers. We are here to support the club [and] propel the LA Galaxy to victory.”

“We wear yellow and keep the traditions alive,” Galaxians vice president and capo Adrian Payes told LAGalaxy.com in 2016. “There are so many stories from the Rose Bowl and StubHub Center that we’ve been a part of and keep our traditions from the early days alive.”
The Galaxians also like to differentiate their group as being more family-friendly. “Our group has a lot more of a family atmosphere,” Payes added. “You’ve got all spectrums in our group including those who choose to sit and watch the game and the rest who get involved with the flag waving and chanting. In fact, several have joined us from other supporters groups because of our family environment. We offer something for everybody.”
