On the afternoon of this Friday, the Los Angeles Galaxy issued a joint statement with the MLS and LAFC where they specified the reasons for this decision.

Due to safety considerations resulting from weather conditions and forecast thunderstorms in the Los Angeles area, Major League Soccer, LA Galaxy and LAFC announced today that the 2023 MLS regular season game is scheduled for this Saturday, May 25. February between LA Galaxy and LAFC at the Rose Bowl Stadium has been rescheduled for a later date.”

The letter also highlighted that although the date on which the match will take place is unknown, it will be announced soon and fans who have already purchased their tickets will be able to keep them and use them for when the duel takes place.

This already suspended commitment would not only be the debut of both squads in the championship, but also the 17th meeting between the clubs in all competitions. The record goes to Greg Vanney’s team with seven wins, five draws and four losses.

LA Galaxy will travel to Texas to face FC Dallas on March 4 at Toyota Stadium, while LAFC will face off at home the same day against the Portland Timbers.
