Home to the USC football team since 1923, and a designated National Historic Landmark, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has the most diverse and all encompassing history of any stadium in the world. It has hosted two Super Bowls (I and VII), a World Series (1959), and two Olympiads (X and XXIII). Along with the adjacent Sports Arena, which closed its doors in 2016, the Coliseum is credited with helping to start the migration of professional sports teams to the West Coast. The complex provided a home for the Rams (1946-79, returning again in 2016), the Dodgers (1958-61), and the Lakers (1960-67), and has also been home to a variety of Southern California teams, including: the Raiders (1982-94), UCLA Football (1933-81), the Chargers (1960), Clippers (1984-99), USC Basketball (1959-2006), UCLA Basketball (1959-65), the Cobras (1988, Arena Football), Ice Dogs (1995-96, IHL), Sharks (1972-74, WHA), Stars (1968-70, ABA) and Kings (1967, NHL). The Coliseum has also welcomed a wide range of diverse and legendary events, such as entertainer Evel Knievel (1973), a Papal Mass by Pope John Paul II (1987), Nelson Mandela’s “Crusade against Apartheid” (1990), visits from several U.S. Presidents (FDR, JFK, and Reagan, to name a few), and endless sold-out concerts from such iconic artists as Pink Floyd, U2, The Who, Metallica, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, and many more. Come find out why we are known as the "Greatest Stadium in the World"!

Went to the Real Madrid v Man City game there July 26. Was amazed at the sheer size of the stadium. We had very good seats, but this stadium does lack simple things like cup holders. But then again, that is how 93,098 fit inside....More

The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is just west of downtown LA and is easy to get to and offers an interesting spot to enjoy a very historical site which will be home to another Olympic games soon.

Even though it is a pretty old stadium and the facilities could be greatly improved there is no better experience than going to the Coliseum to watch an SC game. Everyone is cheering and it is honestly an amazing experience

Hello. We went for a free event so not sure on ticketing. Parked on site in the underground garage just few meters from the stadium.
