The Los Angeles Galaxy announced that they will host perennial Argentine contender Boca Juniors at the Home Depot Center on Sunday, May 23rd, with tickets going on sale this Friday.

Similar to many of the other Super teams coming to North America in late May and Early June, many of the stars that have booked their tickets to South Africa for the World Cup will not be present, but aging Argentine heroes (and one-time Major League Soccer targets), such as Martin Palermo and Juan Roman Riquelme are expected to be present.

Boca is arguably the most famous and successful club in the Western Hemisphere, having won the Argentine League 24 times, the Copa Libertadores six times and the World Club Cup 3 times, most recently in 2007. Though the club hasn’t won a major title since 2008 and are currently languishing in 15th place in the Argentine Clausura, Boca is a well suited addition to a North American summer schedule packed with friendlies. Some of the World’s most famous teams including AC Milan, Manchester United, Celtic, Rangers, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Paris-Saint Germain and Club America are all expected to play in North America between May and August.
