Galaxy Exhibition In Minneapolis Back On For November 11

The previously postponed Los Angeles Galaxy exhibition match, called the Copa Minnesota, at the Metrodome in Minneapolis is now set to be played on Sunday November 11.

Sadly, the opponent will be our Minnesota Thunder. When the match was first announced we were promised a top international opponent. Why we are getting this match up I don't know. But it's not a good solution in my mind. (I wonder who will even play for the Thunder since the team is in their off-season and scattered all over the world?)

As for tickets, they have added a new cheaper set of tickets for just $15 each, and then the same pricing as before going up to $125. Here are the details.

I will have details for you to buy special tickets in a supporters section in the front rows behind the north end goal.

I had thought the "top international opponent" referred to future Copa America matches. As I understand it, the host team is always going to be the Thunder. Tony Sanneh is not busy right now, maybe the Rapids can send him this way on a one game loan.

The only involvement the Thunder were supposed to have with Copa Minnesota was that the organization was gonna host it. It was always publicized that the Galaxy would play a top international opponent and each year following other international teams would be brought in to play for the Copa Minnesota.

what I think is worst about this whole thing is the blow the team will take among the soccer public in Minnesota. They have been taking hits for the past few years and this one is gonna be a doozy.

I hope Dean and Henk have deep pockets.

It is a friendly. Does the Minnesota soccer public really care that much about a friendly? I think the Thunder have been taking hits because they have put a boring team out to play on a really bad pitch. The vast majority of the people buying tickets for the Galaxy match will be doing so to see Beckham. Fair play to them, but we will not be sitting among them. Regardless, what top international side is available for a friendly in November?

I kind of suspected the opponent would fall through. If there was actually some relevant team they would have had some idea back when they announced it.

I'd have liked to see them hold it off until spring through. This isn't a good time to host the game and if the best opponent they can come up with is the second to worst USL team, it won't be nearly the hype it could have been.
