CARSON, Calif. – The LA Galaxy announced today that the club has added a game in the Philippines to their Asia Pacific Tour 2011. The Galaxy will face the Philippines National Team at Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila on Saturday, December 3.
Following the game in Manila, the Galaxy will head to Australia where they will conclude their tour against Melbourne Victory of the Hyundai A-League in the Hyundai Club Challenge Melbourne. Formally announced last month, that game will be played at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne on Tuesday, December 6. Local broadcast information for the entire tour will be announced at a future date.
This will be the Galaxy’s fourth trip to Asia, though it is their first since 2008. In nine all-time games in Asia, the Galaxy are 2-3-4, including a 1-0-2 record during the club’s preseason Asia Tour 2008 in which they played in Korea, China and Hong Kong. The Galaxy previously visited Australia in 2007 and 2010, losing both friendlies that they played there.
Herbalife, a global nutrition company and the Galaxy’s official presenting sponsor, will serve as an official sponsor for both games.
