But you can buy them in a special presale that begins at noon on Wednesday and ends at 8 a.m. Thursday. The code is c2STRONG.
Tickets start at $20.
The April 22nd game is a tune-up for the regional Olympic qualifiers, set for Oct. 1-13.
Southern Californians who could play in the game include Galaxy defender Oscar Sorto and North Hollywood’s Mario Rodriguez, a striker who plays for Germany’s Borussia Mönchengladbach.
The U-23 team’s first training camp of the year is underway with former Galaxy midfielder Andy Herzog in charge of the team.
“We have nobody to blame but ourselves, but I thought the referee made a bad call at the end,” Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said. “It was ridiculous, the way he called the game. That is just part of it though and we have to accept responsibility too.
“The ref was inconsistent and you cannot let the goalkeeper get charged at the end,” he added. “Having said that, we still should have gotten a point today. Losing that game was ridiculous.”

So you missed Spain beating Ukraine 1-0 and England dispensing with Lithuania 4-0 Friday?
Don’t worry, there are plenty more international games on tap this weekend.
Here are our recommended games:
- 1:20 p.m. Saturday BeIN Sports Argentina-El Salvador
- 7 a.m. Sunday BeIN Sports Brazil-Chile
- 9 a.m. Sunday Fox Sports 2 Georgia-Germany (Euro 2016 qualifier)
Up and coming Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Perk, 25, will miss the remainder of the season after fracturing his left ankle March 14 while playing in a scrimmage for the LA Galaxy II against his alma mata, UCLA.
He went under the knife Tuesday in an operation the club called successful.
Perk made two starts for the Galaxy last year and made another five starts for Los Dos.
Alta Loma native Trey Mitchell was signed Friday to add depth to the roster, coach Bruce Arena said.
Here’s more from the press release:
Mitchell began his college career at Citrus College, where he recorded 97 saves with a 1.30 goals against average in his first two seasons before transferring to Cal State Dominguez Hills. After redshirting in 2012, he played the following two seasons for CSUDH, making 20 starts and recording 71 saves for a .85 goals against average, the fourth best in school history.
If MLS insists on moving forward with a full slate of games despite all the missing stars, shouldn’t they provide discounts to their loyal fans this weekend?
Like that’s going to happen, even if league officials know they are putting out a sub-par product:
Too many goose eggs today. Tomorrow better be better.

“The 3-2 scoreline still manages to flatter a U.S side that was outplayed thoroughly,” opined The Guardian.
Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley were the only two players who played today who were also in the USMNT the last time it faced Denmark in this stadium in 2009.
Zardes being watched tonight in particular by folks in Europe who want him at RM.

Not sure what communication was on the field was like, but Zardes seems at fault. Chandler was on a man and Zardes seemed to be covering.

Galaxy sanctions for alleged misconduct by fan group ACB, originally set to last eight games, have instead been lifted just three games into the new MLS season:
That means ACB will have full supporters’ privileges, including streamers, flags and drums restored effective immediately.
“Angel City Brigade has continued to demonstrate their full support of our team while keeping a positive and open dialogue with our club during some difficult circumstances,” LA Galaxy President Chris Klein said. “As ACB has found ways to support our club while respecting the fan code of conduct guidelines and sanctions, we want to acknowledge their unwavering dedication by providing the full resources to continue their support.
ACB president Vanessa Arias said the group was looking forward to “getting back to business as usual:
“We couldn’t be happier with the final outcome as it shows our voices are heard not only on the pitch but also resonate within the Galaxy organization,” she said. “ACB would like to thank fans around our stadium and supporters across the league for their vast support in spreading awareness on this topic and commend our Brigade for staying united during this turbulent time.”

Looks like JK is treading lightly around MLS coaches when it comes to injuring their players on USMNT duty.
