Ramblings of a Soccer Junky

  Empty your wallet here
Galaxy fans aren't too happy at the Galaxy decision to milk their fans for every drop with their ticketing for their friendly against Real Madrid. In order to buy a ticket for the big game (at twice the price of a regular ticket) they must also buy a ticket to either the July 4 game against New England (fireworks thrown in for good measure) or the July 16 game against Chivas.

How big a PR problem would this be if Beckham, Zidane, Raul et al pick up minor knocks just before the game and only the Real reserves play? After all, "Players are subject to change".

Of course, all that money could end up at the Hawthorns if WBA sue. Seems they aren't too happy that LA are now playing Real two days before their scheduled match at the HDC.

Great going Mr. Hamilton.

They may be upset but online sales are through the roof for that game. Last I heard from someone at the company that runs the websites is that they shattered all online records with this package.
 
I never doubted it would be a huge money-spinner.
