  • LA Galaxy Sign Swedish Midfielder Christian Wilhelmsson

    CARSON, Calif. (Wednesday, September 5, 2012) – The LA Galaxy announced today that the club has signed Swedish international midfielder Christian Wilhelmsson. The 32-year-old joins the Galaxy as the next step in a successful career that has seen him earn 78 caps for the Swedish National Team and play club soccer throughout Europe as well as in the Middle East. Wilhelmsson will officially be added to the Galaxy roster pending the receipt of his P-1 visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC).

    Wilhelmsson, who arrived in Southern California late last week and has been training with the club ever since, played 58 minutes for the Galaxy in a Reserve League game against the San Jose Earthquakes on Tuesday. He will be available to the local media for the first time as a Galaxy player on Thursday morning following the club’s 10 a.m. training session at The Home Depot Center.

    The Galaxy will be back in action on Friday, September 14 when they host the Colorado Rapids at The Home Depot Center. That game, which is presented by MetroPCS, kicks off at 8 p.m. and can be seen live on KDOC and Univision Deportes. For more information about this game or to purchase tickets, please visit
