In LAFC terms, today is the start of 2019.
Monday marks the start of preseason training for the Black & Gold. A year after opening camp in the then unfamiliar surroundings of UCLA, LAFC will take to the pitch at its own Performance Center for this year's preseason camp.
While there are a lot of familiar faces here - LAFC returns 18 players from its record-setting squad of 2018 - a group of 11 players including draftees has also arrived for preseason camp.
It's important to note though that like the draftees, those invited to camp will be competing for a spot on the roster before the start of the MLS season. Below is the full list of LAFC training camp invitees (previous club in parentheses):
F Ricky Lopez-Espin (Real Salt Lake)
M Peter-Lee Vassell (Harbour View)
M Javier Pérez (Univ. of Pittsburgh)
M Kevin Mendoza (Liberty University)
D Lamar Batista (Portland Timbers 2)
M Alejandro Guido (Club Tijuana)
G Wade Hamilton (Galaxy II)
M Conor O'Brien (Charlotte Independence)
F Adrien Perez (Ontario Fury)
M Baggio Husidic (Galaxy)
G Phillip Ejimadu (Nacional Atlético Clube)
The full list of LAFC players signed for the 2019 season can be found on the LAFC roster page.
