Sunday, October 21 2007, 7:00 am - 9:30 am
The Los Angeles Galaxy are a professional football (soccer) team based in Carson, California that participates in Major League Soccer. The name "Galaxy" refers to Los Angeles being the home of many Hollywood 'stars.' The team's original colors were teal and gold; however the teal was changed to green from 2003 until mid 2007. In July 2007, to coincide with the arrival of David Beckham, the Galaxy unveiled a new "rebranded" logo, and a new color scheme of white, navy, and gold. The new home strip is white kit, shorts, and socks, with gold and navy accents. The away strip is navy kit, shorts, and socks, with gold accents. It was rumored that Beckham helped design the new logo and kits. Recently, the Galaxy have attracted extensive media attention for being the first MLS team to take advantage of the Designated Player Rule, also known as the "Beckham Rule," by signing the rule's namesake David Beckham to a contract worth $50 million over five years, although with outside endorsements and profit sharing, Beckham will likely make up to $250 million, primarily paid by Galaxy owner Philip Anschutz through his company, AEG.
