Galaxy to host AC St. Louis in Open Cup

The LA Galaxy will host AC St. Louis of the USSF Division 2 Pro League in a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Third Round game on Tuesday, June 29 at The Home Depot Center. The Galaxy are one of eight MLS teams that will enter the tournament in the Third Round, while AC St. Louis qualified for the game by defeating the NSC Minnesota Stars 1-0 earlier on Tuesday night.


All sections on the West side of the stadium will be open for this game. Sections 107-109 and 113-115 will be General Admission with tickets costing $10 with Reserved Seating in Sections 110-112 for $50.

This will be the first-ever game between the Galaxy and AC St. Louis and LA’s first Open Cup Third Round game since 2007. The Galaxy, who won the Open Cup in 2001 and 2005, have played in the Third Round of the tournament five times, going 4-1 in those games, winning in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 but falling in 2007. From 2003-2006, the Galaxy entered the Open Cup in the Fourth Round.

In addition to winning the Open Cup in 2001 and 2005, the Galaxy reached the Final in 2002 and 2006 while reaching the tournament’s semifinals in 2000 and 2003.

On Saturday, the Galaxy begin the second half of their season when they travel north to Canada to take on Toronto FC. That game kicks off at 4:30 p.m. (PT) and can be seen live on Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Sports en Espanol. The game will also be available locally on the radio in English on KTLK 1150 AM and in Spanish on ESPN Deportes Radio 1330 AM.
