The Los Angeles Galaxy is a soccer franchise that plays in the Western Conference of the MLS. The Galaxy was one of the eight charter teams in the MLS, which began playing its games back in 1996. Originally the club played at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena but moved to their own stadium in 2003, the StubHub Center, Carson, California. Over the history of the franchise, their chief rival has been the San Jose Earthquakes in what has been dubbed the “California Clasico” any time those teams meet. Between 2001 and 2005, the rivalry was at its apex as they too franchise combined to win four MLS Cup titles. The “California Clasico” is one of, if not the, best rivalry that the MLS has.
The Galaxy is one of the most storied franchises in the MLS, appearing in a league record nine MLS Cups for which they won five. Those five MLS Cups are the most of any team in the league. They have also won the Western Conference regular-season title eight times and won four Supporters Shields for having the best regular season record based on the points. Along with all of that success in the MLS, the Galaxy have also won two Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cups which is a knock-out cup competition that is the longest ongoing national competition of its kind in America.
What has separated the Galaxy from other teams in the MLS is their ability to land star international players such as when they signed English superstar David Beckham from Real Madrid back in 2007. Bringing Beckham to the MLS is still one of the most high-profile additions in league history. Aside from Beckham, the Galaxy has also welcomed players like Ashley Cole, Robbie Keane, Luis Hernández, Giovani dos Santos, Jonathan dos Santos, Jorge Campos, Steven Gerrard, and most recently Zlatan Ibrahimović from overseas to join their team. Despite all of the success of international players with the Galaxy, the best player in franchise history is American Landon Donovan. Donovan scored more goals than any player in the history of the MLS during his career with the Galaxy with 113.
