Beckham and Donovan skip Tuesday’s Spurs match for MLS All-Star Game


If you bought tickets to Tuesday’s Galaxy-Tottenham Hotspur game in part to see David Beckham and Landon Donovan take on EPL opposition, you’re out of luck.

Despite using Donovan’s pic to sell tickets to that game (the ad above remains on the Galaxy’s website as of this writing) the pair will miss the friendly to participate in Wednesday’s MLS All-Star Game at PPL Park in Chester, Pa.

“Beckham and Donovan were voted to the MLS All-Star First XI on July 8 and were confirmed for head coach Ben Olsen’s 18-man Gameday roster a week later,” the Galaxy said in a statement released this morning.

Funny how they didn’t tell fans that at the same time, before they bought their expensive tickets.

Isn’t bait and switch advertising illegal?

I’ll have much more to say about this in Tuesday’s column.
