A venue for sports and music lovers alike, the Home Depot Center is one of the most popular places to experience high energy events in Southern California! Located just south of Downtown Los Angeles, CA, the Home Depot Center was opened in 2003 on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills. Boasting 27,000 seats, the Home Depot Center is home to a track and field facility, a cycling velodrome (the only one in all of the United States), a tennis facility, and, most notably, a state of the art soccer stadium. The Los Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA both call the Home Depot Center – the largest soccer stadium in Major League Soccer - home, and a wide variety of prestigious soccer events routinely grace the stadium, including the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup and the MLS Cup. Those visitors wanting a double dose of high octane sports experience can also set their sights on the ESPN Summer X Games, which the Home Depot Center hosts annually.
