Our OPM of the month for February / March has been awarded to Federico Rivera!




Please introduce yourself:

I was born and raised in Los Angeles and have been a Real Madrid fan all of my life but really started to understand the game (business, player side, various competitions, intl breaks, chemistry, etc around 1997). I’ve been to the Bernabeau once in 2015 which ended up being Iker Casillas’ last game.  Very happy to be a part of RMLA and a fan of the best club in the world!


How did you find out about RMLA?

I was moving back to LA from San Francisco and I was looking through meet-up and stumbled upon RMLA. For the most part, I’d watch games alone because there wasn’t a meetup in the Bay Area that I knew of, would watch them at work with my friend who was also a fan.


Who’s your favorite player of all time/or current And why?

My favorite player of all time (so many) but if I had to choose one, I’d say ‘El Capi’ ‘ El Ferarri’ Raul. He came from humble beginnings, a hard worker, a prime example of Madridismo, a gentleman, a bad-ass, and he had so many important moments for the club and bled white.  He was my favorite player even when we had the galacticos once de gala and just the guy was class both on the pitch, in the locker room and away from football.
What’s your favorite menu item from our sponsor, Tom’s Urban LA Live?

Buffalo chicken sliders
What’s your most memorable Moment with RMLA?

When we won La Undecima and being so happy and relieved that I cried (LOL). I remember looking for Edward and Meño to hug them and we just made a circle, jumped around and were crying in joy. The year was such a crazy year with Ancelotti being let go, Benitez being hired (who I wasn’t excited about at all) and then firing him to bring on el Mister Zidane. 




We will be back next month with our April OPM of the month.
