Just ten miles south of Downtown Los Angeles, in Carson, California, is the StubHub Center (previously known as the Home Depot Center from 2003-2013): an expansive multi-venue sports complex and Olympic training facility. The complex opened in 2003 and features the first stadium in the country to be built specifically for soccer. The stadium is home to the Los Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA, and is capable of holding up to 27,000 fans. It hosts international soccer, rugby, and lacrosse matches as well.
The StubHub Center also consists of a 20,000-seat track and field stadium, an 8,000-seat tennis center, and even a 2,500-seat Velodrome arena for track cycling. The velodrome at the StubHub Center is one of only two in the United States. The sports complex is one of the most expansive facilities in the country, and is frequented by many of the best Olympic athletes as they train throughout the year. Sporting events at the StubHub Center such as the Adidas Track Classic, World Tennis Association showcases, and boxing matches have all been held at the various venues.
Besides sporting events, there are often a variety of StubHub Center concerts and shows in the soccer and tennis stadiums. Rock shows from the Dave Matthews Band, Green Day, and The Cure, as well as the Vans Warped Tour rock festival, are just a few of the performances that have been held there.
