LA Galaxy cancel German tour

The MLS side were set to face Kaiserslautern in a friendly on Thursday in their planned post-season German tour.

“We are very disappointed to announce the cancellation of our 2009 Postseason Tour due to a lack of communication and performance by the tour’s organizer and promoter IMC Group, Incorporated,” Galaxy President of Business Operations Tom Payne said in a statement released Wednesday night.

“Unfortunately, IMC Group has not performed their obligations of the agreement thus far, nor do we have faith that they will be able to do so in the future.

“With MLS Cup 2009 this weekend in Seattle, we feel that it is important to make this decision now and remove the potential distractions to our team, rather than continue to hold out hope that the tour will indeed take place.”
