Home Depot Center in suburban Los Angeles will host MLS Cup for the fourth time, the league announced Tuesday.
The 2011 championship match will take place on a Sunday night, Nov. 20. Kickoff will take place sometime after 9 p.m. ET on ESPN and Galavision.
“MLS Cup has grown into a four-day celebration of the world’s game in North America,” Commissioner Don Garber said in a written statement. “We believe that Los Angeles and the Home Depot Center will be a superb stage.”
The 27,000-seat venue in Carson also hosted the finale in 2003, ’04 and ’08.
The past two years, MLS Cup was held in cool-weather sites, Toronto and Seattle, where imperfect conditions impacted the matches and fan experiences.
