The SuperClasico, formerly known as the Honda SuperClasico for sponsorship reasons, and also known as the L.A. Derby[1] or El Clásico Angelino,[2] is a sports rivalry that exists between Major League Soccer teams LA Galaxy and Chivas USA. The rivalry is considered as the only "true" local derby in MLS as both teams are based in the Greater Los Angeles city of Carson, California.

The word "SuperClasico" is an allegory to the Mexican Súper Clásico between Club América and Chivas USA's parent club Chivas Guadalajara. The term "Clásico" is commonly used to refer to other rivalries in Spanish-speaking countries, most prominently, Argentina's Superclásico between Boca Juniors and River Plate or Spain's El Clásico between Barcelona and Real Madrid. The derby is sponsored by auto company Honda.[citation needed]

From 2005–2007, the derby was four league matches (with a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup match in 2005). In 2008–2009, the derby was played three times (plus a two-legged playoff series in 2009). For 2010-2011, the derby was been played twice each season. All games are played at StubHub Center which serves as the local venue for both teams. However, in 2012, the league reverted to a more American-style format that sacrificed equity for divisional rivalries which resulted in the teams facing each other 3 times again. So far, the Galaxy lead Chivas in the derby, having won six of seven cups all time.[3]
