"Our previous matches against MLS opposition have proved popular with fans and players alike and we are delighted to be returning to the US."

Republic of Ireland international Robbie Keane currently leads the LA Galaxy attack and Landon Donovan, Robbie Rogers and Carlo Cudicini also feature on their roster.
