A soccer player who needs no introduction will be introduced to LA Galaxy fans at halftime of the Toronto FC MLS game July 4 in Carson: Steven Gerrard.
However, fans with deep pockets can see Gerrard train with the Galaxy the day before — for $500:
Event admission allows one person to have the exclusive opportunity to watch the LA Galaxy train- have a professional photo taken with Steven Gerrard in Champions Lounge- AND receive an autographed Gerrard jersey.
Gerrard’s first official Galaxy training session is the following Tuesday, with a press conference to follow ahead of his expected July 11 debut against Club America at StubHub Center.
The Galaxy announced Thursday that the Aug. 23 Galaxy game against Frank Lampard and NYCFC will move from ESPN2 to ESPN with the kickoff time being moved forward two hours to noon.
From the Galaxy press release:
The match will mark the first time in history that the LA Galaxy will face 2015 expansion side New York City FC, who joined Major League Soccer this season. In addition to 2014 MLS MVP Robbie Keane, USMNT’s Gyasi Zardes, Omar Gonzalez & Mix Diskerud and Spain’s all-time leading scorer David Villa, the match is set to see English legends Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard square off against each other following their summer arrivals.
Tickets for the game are still available starting at $28.
