With the Caribbean Championship finishing up, CONCACAF could finally release the schedule for the 2012-13 edition of the Champions League. The Galaxy already knew one of the members of their group, Isidro Metapan of El Salvador, but learned last night that their other group member will be Puerto Rico Islanders. You may remember them from the Galaxy's quick exit from the 2010-11 Champions League.

The Galaxy don't begin play until the second week, but play three consecutive weeks once joining the fray. They then get a week off, and finish things in week six. Four matches overall, on weekdays, but that'll be enough to impact the schedule at large as the Galaxy look to make their playoff push.

For the whole schedule, look no further. Remember, unlike years past, there is no knockout round, and we go directly to groups of three with only the group winner advancing:
