Located in Exposition Park, the project sets a new benchmark for the premium soccer experience through its dynamic and engaging design, giving way to elevated experiences for fans, guests and players—from game day to special events.

This 22,000-seat venue is the first open-air professional stadium to be built in Los Angeles in over 30 years. The project has become a catalyst for future improvements to South Los Angeles and Exposition Park as a year-round cultural destination.

The goal of the project was to create a truly authentic experience for fans of the Los Angeles Football Club. The stadium’s contemporary design is open and dynamic, with an ETFE canopy that flies above the bowl like angel wings in the “City of Angels.” Embracing Tinseltown, the stadium was designed cinematically to stage moments to engage fans and build memories. Framed views of the Downtown Los Angeles skyline create a symbolic connection to the city by drawing on its cultural diversity.
