LA Galaxy II have announced the signing of 18-year-old defender Robert Castellanos. Castellanos joins Los Dos from Liga MX side Atlas FC, where he signed in August 2016, and will be officially added to the team’s roster pending the receipt of an International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
"We are excited to add Robert to our roster," LA Galaxy II Head Coach Mike Muñoz said. "He will continue to develop as a member of Galaxy II and we look forward to the contributions we believe he can make to this club."
Castellanos, of Palmdale, Calif, has spent time in the USYNT system, most recently being called in for U-20 training camp in July 2016. Prior to signing with Atlas, Castellanos was a member of U.S. Soccer Developmental Academy side Nomads SC.
Los Dos will kick off the 2017 campaign at StubHub Center Track & Field Stadium on Saturday, March 25 when they host Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2. Kickoff times for all LA Galaxy II matches will be announced on later dates.
LA Galaxy II Season Ticket Memberships are on sale now. With an additional home game added to the 2017 schedule, fans can still become a Los Dos Season Ticket Member for under $100. Season Ticket Memberships purchased prior to February 25th will include an invitation to LA Galaxy’s Annual Season Ticket Member Rally, February 26th.
