Weekly Column: Galaxy Educating Public, Selling the CONCACAF Champions league


It’s not an easy sell.

The much more familiar UEFA Champions League is under way this week, too, with the likes of Scotland’s Celtic in action at 11 a.m. on Fox Soccer (click the link at top right for game details).

And Real Salt Lake is live in the CONCACAF version at 7 p.m. on the same channel, while the likes of CD Guadalajara play at the same time on Galavision, while former Galaxy star Herc Gomez and Santos Laguna at 5 p.m. on Univision Deportes.

Plenty to watch then, which makes it all the more difficult for the Galaxy to persuade would-be TV viewers to trade in their couch despite some of the most inexpensive seats I’ve seen in years at Home Depot Center.

More details are in this week’s column, a primer for the Galaxy’s Thursday game against Isidro Metapan in Carson.

More on Metapan via a CONCACAF video is here.

Who’s going to the game? Who’s going to skip it and why? Let us know in the comments section.
