The LA Galaxy announced today that more than 60,000 tickets have already been sold for the club’s international friendly against Spanish power Real Madrid on Saturday, August 7 at the Rose Bowl. The match, which is presented by Pechanga Resort & Casino, kicks off at 7:30 p.m. in Pasadena.
The General Admission, Sideline and Fieldside sections are sold out, but individual tickets are available starting at just $40, giving you the chance to see the Galaxy take on one of the world’s most storied and recognized clubs.
A nine-time European champion and 31-time champion of Spain’s La Liga, Real Madrid named in late May two-time Champions League winner José Mourinho as the club’s new head coach. For this game, Mourinho will have his full roster of international stars available for selection, including 2008 FIFA Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo, 2007 FIFA Player of the Year Kaka, and the Spanish trio of Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso, who will each be playing their first game with the club since helping Spain defeat Holland 1-0 in the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final on July 11.
New signings Angel Di Maria and Sami Khedira are also expected to be in uniform for the game and could make their Madrid debut in the match against the Galaxy.
