SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Prior to the Gauchos' Sep. 13 men's soccer showdown at No. 6 UCLA, the Gaucho Fund presents a pre-game Gaucho Huddle featuring a reception and address from head coach Tim Vom Steeg.

The event offers the opportunity for UCSB fans from all across the Southern California area to come together, socialize and cheer on the Gauchos in a pivotal matchup with their heated Pac-12 rivals.

Past Bruins-Gaucho matchups have produced some of the biggest crowds in NCAA history, including a record 15,896 attendance at Harder Stadium in September 2010.

The Gaucho Huddle will start at 5 p.m. in the Charles E. Young Salon located in Kerckhoff Hall on the UCLA campus. The match is set to kick off at 7 p.m. and you can find a campus map here.

$30 grants fans a bus ticket to Westwood, access to the pregame reception, and a ticket to the game. The bus will depart from and return to the UCSB campus. For fans not needing a lift to the match, $15 gets you into the Gaucho Huddle and into the game.

The pre-game reception will feature food, drinks, and a talk from Vom Steeg.

For any questions or to RSVP, contact Christina Baglas at or call 805.893.5956.
