MLS announced today the preseason schedule, setting the date when pre-season camps can begin, when rosters have to be set, and the dates for the pre-season tournaments. Training camps may officially begin January 15, 2012. We know Landon Donovan is going on loan to Everton, and Michael Stephens will be at the U-23 camp. It's possible more Galaxy players could be called into the January camp for the senior US National Team to be held at the Home Depot Center.

All clubs must meet roster and salary budget requirements by March 1st. The Galaxy will be playing in the preseason FC Tucson Desert Cup from Feb 22 to March 3rd. Which all means the time between now and January 15 should be quite interesting as Bruce Arena waits to hear back from agents and moves forward with the club.

The schedule for the Desert Cup is as follows:

Wednesday, February 22

8:00 PM New England Revolution vs. LA Galaxy

10:00 PM New York Red Bulls vs. Real Salt Lake

Saturday, February 25

8:00 PM LA Galaxy vs. Real Salt Lake

New York Red Bulls vs. New England Revolution

Wednesday, February 29

8:00 PM Real Salt Lake vs. New England Revolution

10:00 PM LA Galaxy vs. New York Red Bulls

Saturday, March 3

8:00 PM MLS 3rd Place vs. MLS 4th Place

10:00 PM MLS 1st Place vs. MLS 2nd Place
