The Galaxy this week began preparations for the 2011 MLS season, which kicks off March 15 with a visit to Seattle. Club Tijuana is 0-1-1 in the Liga de Ascenso's Clausura championship -- they meet Leon in their first home game of the season -- and will play for a berth in the Mexican Primera Division in late spring.
