Takeoffs and Landings: LA Galaxy head to El Salvador for CONCACAF Champions League

CARSON, Calif. – It’s a travel day for the LA Galaxy as they’ll head to El Salvador in preparation for Thursday’s match against Isidro Metapán.

A year ago, the Galaxy traveled commercially to El Salvador ahead of their clash with Isidro Metapán, but with the team facing a pair of vital matches this week, LA will once again travel to Central America via charter.

“We’ll be chartering so it takes two and a half hours off the trip,” said midfielder Michael Stephens. “Also, it helps us so we can leave immediately following the game in El Salvador and focus right away on Seattle.”
