The Home Depot Center is a multiple-use sports complex located on the
campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills in Carson, California.
It is located approximately 13 miles south of Downtown Los Angeles. Its title
sponsor is major hardware retailer The Home Depot. The $150 million
complex was developed and is operated by the Anschutz Entertainment Group

The 27,000 seat main stadium was designed specifically for soccer, and as
the top soccer venue in the United States, is nicknamed “The Cathedral of
American Soccer.” It is home to both the Los Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA
of Major League Soccer, and was the second stadium designed specifically
for MLS teams.

When the stadium opened in June 2003 as the new home of the Galaxy, a
number of special events took place in celebration. Pelé, who is widely viewed
as the greatest soccer player of all time, was in attendance at the opening
match along with many dignitaries from the soccer world, and
L.A.-area celebrities.
Both the United States women’s and men’s national soccer teams often use
the facility for training camps and select home matches. It was the site of the
2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup final. It hosted the 2003 MLS All-Star Game
and the MLS Cup in 2003 and 2004, and will host the MLS Cup for the third
time in 2008.

The soccer and tennis stadiums of the Center are main venues each year for
ESPN’s Summer X Games. X Games events held each year at “the HDC” include
skateboarding, in-line skating, auto rally racing, motorcycle racing, and BMX
bicycle skills competitions.

The Home Depot Center hosted the first three editions (2004-06) of the USA
Sevens, an annual competition in the Sevens version of rugby union that is
part of the IRB Sevens World Series. It also is the location for the State
Championship Bowl Games for high school football in the state of California.
It also served as the host facility for the first two seasons of Spike TV’s Pros
vs Joes reality sports contests.

In addition to the soccer stadium, The Home Depot Center features a 2,500-
seat Olympic Velodrome, a 13,000-seat tennis stadium and an outdoor track
and field facility that has 20,000 permanent seats and has seated up to
22,000. The Los Angeles Riptide of Major League Lacrosse play their home
games at the track and field stadium. It is also the home of the adidas Run
ning Club, a member of the USA Elite Running Circuit, and the Adidas
Track Classic.

The Home Depot Center is also home to Athletes Performance which trains
elite athletes in a variety of sports.
