LAFC breaks ground on new stadium, announces naming rights deal


Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) has broken ground on its new 22,000-seat soccer-specific venue, which will be named the Banc of California Stadium as part of a strategic partnership with Banc of California.

In a statement on the club’s website, it’s estimated that the new development, on the site of the former Los Angeles Sports Arena, will bring more than US$350m in private investment to South Los Angeles. This includes a district that will be active on non-game days, 365-days of the year, that will feature a large public plaza, restaurants, a retail store, and a conference and events center, and will serve as a sports, entertainment, civic, and cultural landmark for Los Angeles.

Designed by LA-based architectural firm Gensler, the stadium will maximize both fan and player experiences, incorporating elements and best practices from entertainment and sports venues from around the world.
