The Los Angeles Galaxy are an American professional soccer team, based in the Los Angeles suburb of Carson, California, which competes in Major League Soccer (MLS). It is one of the ten charter clubs of MLS, and the league's second most-decorated club, after D.C. United.
The Galaxy are the reigning MLS Cup and MLS Supporters' Shield champions. They have won the MLS Cup three times (2002, 2005, 2011), the MLS Supporters' Shield four times (1998, 2002, 2010, 2011), the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup twice (2001, 2005), and is one of just two MLS teams to win the CONCACAF Champions' Cup (now replaced by the CONCACAF Champions League) which they accomplished in 2000.
Initially, the Galaxy played their home games at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, but since 2003 they have played at The Home Depot Center in Carson, which they share with their rival, Chivas USA. The club's current head coach is former US national team coach Bruce Arena. The team holds a fierce rivalry with the San Jose Earthquakes in the California Clásico, which is regarded by many as the longest-running rivalry in American soccer.
In January 2007, the club made international headlines by signing English superstar David Beckham from Real Madrid in a deal potentially worth $250 million, which was the highest-profile signing in the history of MLS.
