LA Galaxy II TicketsThe LA Galaxy II is the official reserve club for its owner and operator, the LA Galaxy. The roster is comprised of players who have graduated from the academy level but are not yet ready to join the main team. Players like Jack McBean and Ariel Lassiter have split time between the the Galaxy and Galaxy II. LA Galaxy II was originally founded in 2014 as a member of USL, which is now the Division II tier of American soccer behind the MLS. LA Galaxy II got off to a hot start. In its second ever season, the team reached the league championship game, where it lost to the Rochester Rhinos by 2-1. The Galaxy came within moments of winning the match, but Asani Samuels scored two goals for Rochester — the first in the 92nd minute to tie the match and the second in the dying minutes of overtime to clinch the victory. LA Galaxy II tickets are available at StubHub, a leading source for live events.
