When Real Madrid played the LA Galaxy in 2005, a prevailing question at the time was regarding the site of the match. With big BIG stadiums like the LA Coliseum (capacity 92,500) and the Rose Bowl (92,000+) nearby, the match was instead played at Home Depot Center (capacity 27,000).
AEG exec Tim Leiweke said at the time (and I'm paraphrasing) that they could have held the game somewhere else but instead wanted to make it an exclusive, hard-to-get ticket because that sort of event generates buzz.
Two years later with David Beckham in tow, it seems that they don't feel the same way.
The superliga match between the LA Galaxy vs. Chivas de Guadalajara will be played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday, July 28 at 7 p.m.
Internet presale for these tickets go on sale Monday, June 4 via Ticketmaster.
