Galaxy to play Club America in Carson, Barcelona at Rose Bowl this summer


The Galaxy will play Club America 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 11 at StubHub Center and Barcelona 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 21 at the Rose Bowl.

Both games are part of the 17-game, 10-team International Champions Cup that also includes the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.

Tickets to the Club America game go on sale to the general public May 7; ticket information for the Barcelona game has yet to be announced.

“Southern California is the perfect location to host multiple soccer matches,” said Charlie Stillitano, chairman of promoter Relevent Sports. “Last year’s match with the LA Galaxy at the Rose Bowl against Manchester United drew more than 80,000 fans, illustrating the demand for world-class soccer in the area. We are thrilled to bring both Club América and Barcelona and their rabid fan bases to Los Angeles. The reigning MLS Cup winners facing the best teams in Mexico and Spain will provide electric soccer in front of an engaged and raucous crowd.”

The Galaxy met Barcelona in 2009 in front of 93,137 at the Rose Bowl in a 2-1 loss that saw David Beckham notch the lone LA goal.
