The Galaxy, which has clinched a playoff berth, said its opponent is yet to be determined because there are still three weeks left in the regular season.
The conference semifinals consist of two games, with the winner decided by the aggregate number of goals over the two matches.
The Galaxy's first game in the semifinals will be either Nov. 1 or 2 at the opponents' home venue. The Galaxy then will host the second game Nov. 9 at StubHub Center in Carson. The games' start times have yet to be determined.
