Galaxy to Host Inter Milan on August 7
The Los Angeles Galaxy today announced that they are going to host Champions League Cup winners Inter Milan at a friendly at the Home Depot Center on August 7. While only 18,000 people came out to see the Galaxy play Boca Juniors over the weekend, this game could probably sell 75,000 seats if the HDC was big enough. In fact, kudos to the Galaxy for letting the game stay at the HDC rather than moving it to the Rose Bowl or the Coliseum. The loyal Galaxy fans will have the opportunity to watch one of Europe’s great teams play in the friendly, intimate confines of their home stadium. Also, the game is long enough after the World Cup so that all of Inter’s great stars – Eto’o, Sneijder, Samuel, and of course, Milito – should be on hand.
