Shirak football team to play away match with LA Galaxy

Armenia’s football champion team, Gyumri-based Shirak, will have a training session in the United States this winter.

On February 15, Shirak, as an away team, is scheduled to play with the Los Angeles Galaxy (LA Galaxy) at the StubHub Center stadium, in Carson, California.

The LA Galaxy team includes Landon Donovan (who played in the German Bundesliga and English Premier League), goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini and Robbie Keane, one of the most talented forwards in MLS and captain of the team.

Aleco Iskandaryan, a soccer of Armenian descent, used to play for the team as well. 

Shirak may play other test matches in the USA. 

The Armenian community in California is the largest in the USA, and numerous Armenians are expected to watch the Shirak-LA Galaxy match at the StubHub Center stadium, which is designed for 27,000.
