The USL Championship announced the league’s home openers for the 2021 season on Tuesday, and we now know two of LA Galaxy II’s games for the season ahead.
Los Dos will start their season at home, Apr. 30 against Sacramento Republic FC. The game will be played at Dignity Health Sports Park.

The other game we know of is also on a Friday, May 14, when LA will be on the road to face Real Monarchs in Utah.
Los Dos are coming off another strong campaign, in which a very young squad under Junior Gonzalez reached the playoffs in a very difficult division, even with a season shutdown and coronavirus outbreak on the team. They were exciting to watch last season and should be a competitive team once again, with much of the core of the team expected to return.
It is possible there will be another game or two played between the two games announced, and we have to wait to hear about the rest of the schedule this season, hopefully soon. But we know of a couple dates now, and we can gear up to see some of the stars of tomorrow on Galaxy II this season.
