West Bromwich Forced to Call Off Tour

WEST BROMWICH, England - West Bromwich Albion has been forced to call off a two-game series in California later this month.The English Premier League club said Friday the Los Angeles Galaxy had canceled a preseason game with West Brom to play an exhibition against Spanish power Real Madrid on July 18. West Brom said it had tentative plans to face the Galaxy on July 20 and Chivas USA on July 26.
West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace was upset with the decision.
"I am angry and disappointed at the treatment of our club and we will be reporting all the circumstances to FIFA, and other relevant football authorities," he said. "We strongly believe we had a firm commitment from LA Galaxy who, on June 8, confirmed by e-mail that they had finalized their local arrangements to take West Bromwich Albion to their area."
Peace said the team hoped instead to play two preseason games in Europe.
Galaxy general manager Doug Hamilton had a different take on what took place between the parties.
"We were, in fact, talking to them, but we never reached an agreement," he said. "It was simply a discussion that took place and it never came to fruition."
