MLS teams add Tournament

Add the Pan-Pacific Championship to a growing number of tournaments MLS teams are involved in before, during and after the seven-month regular season. The new event, to be played Feb. 20 and 23 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, will feature teams from M.L.S. (Houston Dynamo and Los Angeles Galaxy), Japan (Gamba Osaka) and Australia (champion of the A-League). The Galaxy will play Gamba Osaka in the opener of a doubleheader, followed by a game between Houston and the Australian club. Another doubleheader three days later will feature a third-place and championship match.

I know why they put Galaxy in the tournament, because of becks. But they so don't deserve to be there. They have failed to make the playoffs the last 2 years. They are not even close to the best team in the MLS. Unfortunatley, without them, no one would be interested in this tournament.

This doesn't seem like a very important tournament for me, or at least a tournament that teams will care much about. It is preseason practice for the MLS and J-League and the Australian team will have just played a championship game and will be preparing for the AFC Champions League (as will the J-League team). Obviously the main attraction of this event will be Becks. Unless there is good prize money, like the SuperLiga, I wouldn't count on this being all too important.
