NEW YORK — Major League Soccer on Tuesday announced it has awarded The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. the MLS Cup, which will be played on Sunday, Nov. 20
It will be the fourth time in the league’s 16-year history the championship game will be held at the southern California venue, having hosted the match in 2003, 2004 and 2008.
MLS Cup will kick off at 9 p.m. ET (ESPN, Galavision;TSN2 in Canada).
The awarding of the cup to the HDC should not come as a big surprise since Anschutz Entertainment Group president and CEO Tim Leiweke let it slip out several weeks ago.
“We are proud and excited to bring Major League Soccer’s championship event back to the City of Los Angeles and The Home Depot Center, one of the finest sports venues in the United States,” MLS commissioner Don Garber said in a statement. “MLS Cup has grown into a four-day celebration of the world’s game in North America. We believe that Los Angeles and The Home Depot Center will be a superb stage for MLS Cup 2011.”
This game is included in Galaxy full season ticket plans as Bonus Game 1. A special ticket pre-sale will take place in the near future for all current Galaxy ticket plan holders wishing to add additional tickets at a discounted price to MLS Cup 2011.
