A team renowned for their international stars will be opening up their 2014 preseason campaign with international opposition.

The Los Angeles Galaxy announced on Monday that they will play their first match of the 2014 calendar year in a friendly at the StubHub Center on Feb. 8 against FC Shirak of Armenia. Shirak are the defending champions of the Armenian Premier League and currently sit in second place in this year’s standings.

It will be the first-ever meeting between the two sides and the first time ever that the Galaxy have hosted a team from Armenia. Shirak are located in the Armenian city Gyumri, not far from Armenia’s western border with Turkey.
