Brisbane Match Postponed

The LA Galaxy announced today that the club has postponed its international friendly against the Queensland Roar that was scheduled to be played on Thursday, December 11 at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.

Here is a statement from Tom Payne, the club's newly promoted President of Business Operations, on the Postponement:

“We were not in a position to absolutely guarantee David Beckham’s availability for our game against the Queensland Roar on December 11.”

“To avoid disappointment for the many fans that were expected to travel to Brisbane from all parts of Australia for this event, it was decided to postpone this game before tickets went on sale to the general public. Those fans with tickets as a result of a priority pre-purchase this week will receive a full refund. We are very hopeful that we will be able to re-schedule the game in Brisbane in the near future and will make this a priority for our organization.”

“The game to be played on December 6 in Auckland, New Zealand against an Oceania All-Star Invitational Team will take place as scheduled against a full Galaxy squad."
