Galaxy move up September game against Colorado

The Los Angeles Galaxy will play the Colorado Rapids at home on

Sept. 14, two days earlier than originally scheduled.

The game, which was scheduled for Sept. 16, will begin at 8 p.m.

at Home Depot Center.

Galaxy Vice President Chris Klein says the team sought the date

change for ”purely competitive reasons.” Major League Soccer and

the Rapids supported the move that was announced Tuesday.

Klein says the Galaxy want to put themselves in the best

position to win their CONCACAF Champions League game in Puerto Rico

on Sept. 19 and the two extra days of rest and training beforehand

will better prepare them.
