The LA Galaxy today announced that the club has reached an agreement with AC Milan that would allow David Beckham to remain on loan with Milan through the end of the 2008-09 Serie A season. That season culminates on May 31, after which Beckham would re-join the Galaxy. However, Beckham will not be eligible to play for the Galaxy in any league games until the international transfer window re-opens on July 15, 2009.
As part of the agreement to extend the loan, AC Milan will participate in an exhibition game against the LA Galaxy at The Home Depot Center on July 19. This game will necessitate the re-scheduling of the Galaxy’s MLS regular-season match against the New York Red Bull two days earlier to July 16 at Giants Stadium.
The Galaxy has also announced a rollback (10% on average) on ticket prices for the upcoming season. The team will be issuing refunds, in the amount of the rollback, for fans that have already purchased individual and season tickets, according to President of Business Operations Tom Payne.
