L.A. was the final destination on the #GlobalCityFans continent-hopping tour, where the club featured personal stories from impassioned Blues worldwide. The series began in Manchester and made stops in Mumbai, Seoul, Johannesburg, Melbourne, Jakarta, Abu Dhabi, and New York, in order to “shed light on the unifying power of the beautiful game and celebrate global city fan culture.”

On recommendation by Lee, the L.A. edition featured the city’s thriving street ball and futsal scene, including members of some of our favorite crews—Bola, Brazuca Ballers, and Calle661. Watch their segment and an interview with Lee starting at 1:18.
