MLS announced this morning that First Kick next year will be Saturday, March 10th with a slate of six matches, then two on Sunday and one on Monday. The LA Galaxy are amongst the six teams hosting matches on the tenth. Broadcast info and opponents haven't been announced yet, but we can do some speculating:
Six clubs hosting on March 10th:
The following day Chivas and FC Dallas will host their home openers, and then the Portland Timbers on Monday. MLS has said that they wish to have the interconference match-ups in the first part of the season, with the second half focusing on the intra-conference match-ups. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Galaxy open up their season on March 10th against the New York Red Bulls on NBC.
What is your prediction?
Let's take a look at what the papers are saying about the LA Galaxy:
Galaxy trade goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts - latimes.com
A broken forearm cost Galaxy goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts several starts this season. And now it has cost him his job with the Galaxy, as the team traded the Jamaican international player to the expansion Montreal Impact on Monday in exchange for allocation money.
