    I have recently heard from many credible sources that LA Galaxy MLS are going to remove their name from their alliance clubs very soon. They can’t control the brand image with the geography being so spread. I feel this would further damage their brand with all the families that have supported them and played in the alliance clubs. All the MLS club have wanted to do is gauge more and more $$$ from the youth organizations every year.

    Who picks up LAGSB, LAGOC, LAGSD?
    Slammers, Surf or Pats?
    Or is the finally the chance for Blues to expand?

    LAGSB=Beach FC, FRAM
    LAGOC=Pats,Slammers, OC Surf et al, (And any other club training at OCGP)
    LAGSD=This is a good one...all those parents that bought Carlsbad United FC kits in 2014 only to be told they had to buy new kits in 2015 with LAGSD on the front get to dust those CUFC kits off and get some more use out of them!! ;)

    Interested in your prediction for who would absorb LAGCV. We are going to the LA Galaxy Summer Cup that they are hosting this weekend in Thousand Oaks.

    This would seem to be in line with the DA splitting the boys u18/19 into two tiers. LAG with both tier 1 and 2, probably not.

    At least the CUFC kits were better looking.

    There is no need to sell. Just pay for a similar deal with another pro club.

    Why limit yourself to a 2nd/3rd tier league like MLS? PSG Los Angeles sounds better than LAGSB IMHO. Probably can't get a deal from Manchester United, but I'm sure the newly promoted Aston Villa wouldn't mind getting some extra money.

    Bring back the Laguna Hills Eclipse! I always liked those kits for girls. And what has happened to that Strikers OC that was once Eclipse? Maybe LAGOC can go strikers and revilatize that girls program. Or go back to being Irvine Slammers.

    I call bs. No way this happens anytime soon IF true. Kits have just been issued for all of the above mentioned teams. I could see next season, at the absolute earliest. Do you work for Steel "Steal" United by chance?

    Nice drive by... I think you may need a more credible source.

    Unfortunately, this happens every season but not at this rumored magnitude. I am we have seen kids wearing XYZ kits from their old club but the canopy is from the ABC new club. Something similar just happened to a smaller club. Instead of an MLS club it was the city that abolished their club system. This is leaving teams that just bought new kits for the upcoming season scrambling to affiliate themselves with nearby clubs. I hope it all works out for LAG affiliated teams and any other teams caught up in similar situations.

    *I don't wear pink and black or sponsored by Puma. I do have Yokohama tires though.

    Actually they should go back to FC Blades....

    Glad this is the LAST year of youth club soccer for us. Our youngest is a senior in HS.

    Think this is wrong. It’s called renewal. And those clubs that are signed up have some deciding to do...

    we had a great first year with our galaxy affiliate. the second not so much, probably our worst year of soccer ever. Best thing that happened was leaving the club because I got a pay raise not paying the crazy fees for 2 kids :)
