LAFC President and founder Don Sheppard (upper right) and actor Matt Damon have more in common than you’d think. Both are fans of English Premier League soccer. Witness their attendance February 7 at historic Stamford Bridge, home field of Chelsea FC. They watched Chelsea thrash rival Arsenal 2-0 behind two Didier Drogba goals. Sheppard and Damon are humanitarians committed to transforming underserved communities worldwide. The LAFC Foundation builds soccer fields and programs that promote healthier, more active lifestyles and connect families to vital services. Over the years, Damon has supported numerous worthy causes and organizations. Recently, through the group ONEXONE, Damon has worked with partners to provide children with clean water, food, improved education and healthcare. Yet aside from Damon’s Academy Award, there are strong differences between the two, not the least of which is that while Sheppard has been a semi-regular presence at Chelsea games, Damon is reportedly a Tottenham Hotspurs fan.
