The Galaxy never announced it, but WBA had and had even booked flights and reserved hotel rooms for a trip to LA to play the Galaxy and Chivas in friendlies. However, the trip is now off and I’m sure Doug Hamilton could be getting a call from UEFA, FIFA or USSF to explain their version of events.
Obviously, Hamilton went after the big money Real Madrid would bring in over playing a friendly against a decent WBA team. I’m sure it’ll eventually blow over, but somehow I have a feeling that other teams in England will be hearing from WBA management if they are considering a trip to LA.
Either way, it’s not a great way to build relationships. Way to go Mr. Hamilton.
