The latest addition to the MLS, LAFC, is Los Angeles’ newest professional soccer team. LAFC is off to a fast and exciting start, their home field being the recently constructed Banc of California Stadium, located in between the Coliseum and the 110 freeway in downtown Los Angeles

LA Care will have multiple radio spots on ESPN LA during all 34 of LAFC’s games this season, consisting of before, after, and in game halftime spots.

Outside of the actual games, LA Care will have commercial spots during the Soccer Weekly Show, including a live reading of LAFC’s injury report sponsored by LA Care


The Dodgers, LA’s iconic baseball team that has been a staple of Los Angeles culture since their arrival from Brooklyn in 1958, have been off to a great start this season, holding down the 2nd place position in the NL West.

For the Dodgers, LA Care will embark on a campaign with iHeartMedia that will continue on for the remainder of the 2018 MLB season. This partnership will feature multiple pre and in game messages during each game, on top of bonus spots, and a weekly spot on AM570’s “Roggin & Rodney” Show
