The Los Angeles Galaxy are an American professional soccer team, based in the Los Angeles suburb of Carson, California, which competes in Major League Soccer (MLS), the top professional soccer league in the United States and Canada. It is one of the ten charter clubs of MLS, and the league's second most-decorated club, after D.C. United.

Los Angeles is the reigning MLS Supporters Shield champions. The Galaxy have won the MLS Cup twice (2002, 2005), the MLS Supporters' Shield three times (1998, 2002, 2010), the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup twice (2001, 2005), and is one of just two MLS teams to win the CONCACAF Champions Cup (now called the Champions League) championship, which they accomplished in 2000.

Initially, the Galaxy played their home games at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, but since 2003 they have played at The Home Depot Center in Carson, which they share with their rival, Chivas USA. The Galaxy's current head coach is former US national team coach Bruce Arena.

In January 2007, the club made international headlines by signing English superstar David Beckham from Real Madrid in a deal potentially worth $250 million, which was the highest-profile signing in the history of MLS.
