About the Los Angeles Galaxy
The LA Galaxy, also known as the Los Angeles Galaxy, is an American professional soccer franchise based in the Los Angeles suburb of Carson, California, that competes in Major League Soccer (MLS), as a member of the Western Conference of the league. The club began play in 1996 as a charter team in the league.
The Galaxy was founded in 1994 and is owned by Anschutz Entertainment Group. In their early years, the club played their home games at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Since 2003, they have played at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. The team holds a fierce rivalry with the San Jose Earthquakes in the California Clásico, and used to play the SuperClasico against city rivals Chivas USA before they folded in 2014.
In Major League Soccer, the franchise is one of the league’s most-decorated clubs, having won the MLS Cup on five occasions—more than any other club—the Supporters’ Shield four times, the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup twice, and the old CONCACAF Champions’ Cup in 2000, being one of just two American clubs, along with D.C. United, to win the regional tournament.
