The Auckland Regional Council and Oceania football heads expect to discover within the next two weeks whether plans to host David Beckham's Los Angeles Galaxy in Auckland later this year have been successful.

The ARC is leading a bid to attract the Galaxy to Auckland on the Major League Soccer club's end-of-season tour, with the Oceania Football Confederation keen to organise a regional All Stars team for the proposed match at Mt Smart Stadium.

The Los Angeles Galaxy are in negotiations with Football Federation Australia regarding a possible match in Australia, and a date in Auckland could be dependent on the success of those talks.
