ACFC investor Jennifer Garner also showed up at Banc of California Stadium, telling Lori Lindsey prior to kickoff, “I don’t know football, I don’t understand it — soccer, or whatever the heck we call it these days — but I do understand women supporting women. And I do understand really celebrating the heroes that all of you are to our kids — boys and girls.”
Garner was seen in the stands Friday night, leading ACFC fans in cheering on the club.
