Actor and LAFC co-owner Will Ferrell was spotted with Ted Lasso stars Jason Sudeikis and Brendan Hunt at the MLS season opener on Saturday.

The Fox Sports broadcast showed Ferrell, 56, chatting with his co-stars in a suite at BMO Stadium as his Seattle Sounders club battled Western Conference rivals.

They were first seen when LAFC scored the opening goal just before halftime. Ten minutes into the second half, LAFC doubled their lead when the broadcast again showed Ferrell and Hunt in the suites.

The ‘Coach Beard’ actor wore a formal outfit, complete with a jacket and bow tie. Shortly after the game ended, Sudeikis and Hunt arrived at the 2024 SAG Awards at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles.

Saturday wasn’t the first time the iconic pair showed up at BMO Stadium to watch LAFC in action. In September, they were present when the Hollywood-based team presented Lionel Messi and Inter Miami. The visitors won the match 3-1 with goals from Facundo Farias, Jordi Alba and Leo Campana.

LAFC looks to be putting in strong performances in their last two campaigns. After winning the MLS Cup in 2022, they finished last season with a 14-10-10 record before emerging from the West. Unfortunately, LAFC lost to the Columbus Crew in the MLS Cup final.

Their 2-1 win over Seattle on Saturday gave LAFC their seventh straight season opener victory.

The home side trailed goals from Timothy Tillman and Mateusz Begusz before Seattle’s Pedro de la Vega scored a penalty in the 75th minute. The match also marked goalkeeper Hugo Lloris’ debut for the Black and Gold after more than a decade with Tottenham in the Premier League.

Both sides went blow for blow as Seattle attempted 16 shots, seven of which went on target. Meanwhile, LAFC shot seventeen themselves and put seven on frame. Despite losing a clean sheet, Lloris made six saves in an otherwise successful introduction to Los Angeles.

LAFC hit the road for their next match when they take on Real Salt Lake on March 2.
