About The StubHub Center
The StubHub Center is a 125-acre, $150 million development in Carson, featuring state-of-the-art stadiums and facilities for soccer, tennis, track & field, cycling, lacrosse, rugby, volleyball, baseball, softball, basketball and other sports. Designated as an "Official U.S. Olympic Training Site," The StubHub Center is the nation's most complete training facility for Olympic, amateur and professional athletes.

Created around a 27,000-seat soccer stadium, 8,000-seat tennis stadium, 8,000-seat track & field facility and a 2,450-seat indoor velodrome - The StubHub Center Velodrome - the complex is located on the campus of California State University, Dominquez Hills. The StubHub Center is home to two Major League Soccer (MLS) teams, the Los Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA. In addition, the site is the U.S. Soccer Federation's (USSF) national team training headquarters and the location of the United States Tennis Association's (USTA) USA High Performance National Training Center. The development is also designated as an official training site for USA Cycling and USA Track & Field.

Since opening on June 1, 2003, with the Inaugural Home Depot Track & Field Invitational, The StubHub Center has hosted some of the finest national and international competitions in the world. In the facilities first year of operation, it hosted the 2003 MLS All-Star game, 2003 MLS Cup game and the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup championship match. Since then, The StubHub Center has hosted major soccer tournaments and matches, including the qualifying for the prestigious Copa Libertadores- InterLiga, SuperLiga, CONCACAF Men's & Women's Gold Cup matches, the World Series of Football and the annual Honda Super Clasico, featuring Los Angeles' inner-city rivalry, the Los Angeles Galaxy versus Chivas USA. Tennis events at The Stub Hub Center include the annual East West Bank Classic tennis tournament, a Tier II Sony Ericsson WTA tour stop since 2004, showcasing tennis' most elite female athletes. The StubHub Center Velodrome hosted the UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classics 2005-2007, and, in 2005, hosted the World Championships. Across three disciplines (soccer, tennis, track cycling), more than 45 U.S. athletes who competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics trained at The StubHub Cetner in preparation for the Games.

The StubHub Center's commitment to athletics and training also extends to the surrounding communities. Tennis courts, soccer training fields and a three-mile jogging trail with 12 fitness stations around the permieter of the development is available to local residents as well as other facilities and amenities. Through foundations established by AEG-operated entities such as the Galaxy, the Los Angeles Kings (NHL) and STAPLES Center, more than $5 million has been pledged to community organizations in the last seven years, including new donations targeting the local Carson community established by The StubHub Center Charitable Foundation.

The StubHub Center is southern California's legacy to sports, building character through competition.
