MLS Cup tickets go on sale

No guarantee, of course, that the Galaxy will be there, but if you want to see MLS Cup 2011 in person, tickets are now on sale.

The Nov. 20 match at Home Depot Center is sure to sell out before we know who will be battling, but the Galaxy -- which at 12-2-9 have the league's best record -- aren't a bad bet for Major League Soccer's annual showcase.

MLS's championship has been played in L.A. on four previous occasions -- 1998 at the Rose Bowl and 2003, 2004 and 2008 at HDC -- and the Galaxy has fallen short each time.

Tickets, previously available only to Galaxy season ticket-holders, start at $30, with $250 field seats for those with lots of cash. They can be bought through Ticketmaster.
