The crowd of 30,510 fans for Saturday's final set a Home Depot Center record. MLS Cup 2011 drew a crowd of 30,281. That record was broken when the Galaxy drew 30,317 fans for its friendly against Real Madrid in August.

Robbie Keane's goal gave him six in the 2012 playoffs, tied him for second place with Raul Diaz Arce (D.C. United) and Roy Lassiter (Tampa Bay) for the most playoff goals in a season behind Carlos Ruiz's eight goals for the Galaxy in 2002.

Donovan's won his fifth MLS championship, tying him for the most in MLS history along with Jeff Agoos with whom he played on the San Jose Earthquakes' championship teams in 2001 and 2002. Donovan also won with the Galaxy in 2005 and 2011.

4
The Galaxy tied D.C. United for the most MLS championships with four. The Galaxy also won in 2002, 2005 and 2011.

Bruce Arena added to his MLS record with his fourth MLS Cup title. He also won with D.C. United in 1996 and 1997 and the Galaxy in 2011. No other coach has won more than two.

The Galaxy became the third MLS team to win back-to-back titles. D.C, United won in 1996-97 and the Dynamo won in 2006-07.
