GALAXY: Morelia clash will be at HDC
By Scott French
The Galaxy finally decided that home is sweet and scheduled their third home game in CONCACAF Champions League group play, Sept. 28 against Mexico's Morelia, for Home Depot Center.
The site hadn't been determined when the schedule was released last month, although it was hard to think of a better venue for the match. The Coliseum and Rose Bowl are too big, and Cal State Fullerton's Titan Stadium, which seats about 10,000, is too small, especially for a club like Morelia, which enjoys a strong following in Southern California.
Tickets for the 7 p.m. match go on sale Tuesday, and parking will be free -- as it was for last week's victory over Costa Rican champion Alajuelense. The Galaxy is 2-0-0 and atop Group A with four games to go. Their next game in the competition is Sept. 13 at Morelia.
