Los Angeles Galaxy II’s formation through the USL PRO allows the Galaxy to have a fully completed in-house player development program, from the Galaxy’s Under-12 Academy all the way to the LA Galaxy’s first squad. ” For the LA Galaxy II project, the investment of AEG and the Galaxy will allow us to continue to produce the top players in Southern California while also reducing the gap between our academy and the Galaxy.” MLS’s LA Galaxy announced on January 29th that they would field a USL Pro side to serve as their reserve squad beginning with the 2014 season.
For reasons that remain unclear, the Galaxy decided to construct their own team rather than affiliating with an existing USL Pro franchise. Reservists coach Curt Onalfo will take over as senior team’s assistant manager. 1,200-seat Track & Field Stadium at the Dignity Health Sports Park would be the club’s home ground for home games. Prior to this, the Galaxy’s last reserve squad was led by Onalfo to back-to-back West Division MLS Reserve League titles. The LA Galaxy became the first MLS club to own and run a USL Pro team as a result of this move.
There is a track and field facility at Dignity Sports Park in Carson, California, where the team now competes. There are 2,000 permanent seats on the pitch, although it can accommodate up to 20,000 spectators if necessary. LA Galaxy’s first team plays in the main stadium at Dignity Health Sports Park, which seats 27,000 people.
