SEOUL, South Korea -- David Beckham will make what may be a farewell tour with the Los Angeles Galaxy over the coming week in a trio of Asian games that have spawned local discussion about ticket prices.

The Galaxy will play an Indonesian Select XI in Jakarta on Wednesday, followed by a meeting with the Philippines national team in Manila on Dec. 3, then a game against Australian club Melbourne Victory three days later.
Beckham is contractually obliged to appear in all three, and they may be his last appearances in a Galaxy shirt, with speculation about a move back to Europe.
The cost of tickets for the upcoming games had raised eyebrows in local markets, with fears they will be out of reach for poorer fans.
