About Dignity Health Sports Park
Dignity Health Sports Park, home of the LA Galaxy, is southern California’s home of world-class competition and training facilities for amateur, Olympic, collegiate and professional athletes. The $150 million, privately financed facility was developed by AEG on a 125-acre site on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) in Carson, California.
Dignity Health Sports Park features an 8,000-seat tennis stadium, a 27,000-seat stadium for soccer, football and other athletic competitions and outdoor concerts; a 2,000-seat facility for track & field and a 2,450-seat indoor Velodrome – the VELO Sports Center – for track cycling. Dignity Health Sports Park is home to Major League Soccer’s LA Galaxy, the five-time MLS Cup Champions. Dignity Health Sports Park is also home to the United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) High-Performance Training Center, and the national team training headquarters for the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF).
Since opening on June 1, 2003, with the inaugural Home Depot Track & Field Invitational, Dignity Health Sports Park has hosted some of the best national and international competitions in the world. In the facility’s 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, Dignity Health Sports Park 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 and the World Series of Football. Dignity Health Sports Park hosted the LA Women’s Tennis Championships presented by Herbalife, a Tier II Sony Ericsson WTA Tour event, showcasing tennis’ most elite female athletes, from 2004 to 2009. The facility is also home to the nation’s premier indoor velodrome and hosted the UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classics 2005-2007, and, in 2005, hosted the World Championships. In 2017, 2018 and 2019, Dignity Health Sports Park will hosted the Los Angeles Chargers in their first three NFL seasons since returning to Los Angeles.
Dignity Health Sports Park'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 perimeter 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 decade, including new donations targeting the local Carson community established by the ASCSC Community Foundation.
Dignity Health Sports Park is southern California’s legacy to sports, building character through competition.
