Club León’s preparations for the game were significantly affected by a mechanical problem with the charter plane that was supposed to transport the team to Los Angeles. They were traveling after beating Vancouver Whitecaps FC in a shootout at BC Place to start West 3 play.
“We sincerely thank Club León, its players, members of the technical team and the delegation for their patience, as well as LA Galaxy for understanding the circumstances surrounding the rescheduling of the match,” Víctor Guevara, Leagues Cup vice president of competition, said in a statement. “We prioritize the integrity of all participants at all times.
Tickets originally purchased for the July 25th game will be honored for the July 26th taped game.
