GALAXY: Take your photo with the FA Cup
By Scott French
The F.A Cup will be on display at Home Depot Center on Sunday.
Manchester City has brought the FA Cup trophy along on its U.S. tour, and Galaxy fans -- Man City fans, too -- can have their pictures taken with the prestigious chunk of silver when the teams meet Sunday afternoon at Home Depot Center.
The English club, which wraps up a three-game West Coast trek in the 1 p.m. friendly, captured soccer's oldest competition in May, beating Stoke City, 1-0, in the final. The FA Cup has been contested since 1871.
Fans also can have their pictures taken with the Supporters' Shield, which the Galaxy won with the best regular-season record last season in Major League Soccer. Both trophies will be on display inside the southwest (main) entrance to HDC.
