Home Depot Out, StubHub In

StubHub aims to expand with naming deal

Home Depot Center no more, now introducing the StubHub Center.  Home to LA Galaxy and LA Chivas Soccer Teams, the former Home Depot Center will now be known as one the most popular places to buy sports tickets online, StubHub Center.  I wonder if this has anything to do with the LA Chivas looking for a new home.  Before the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team takes the field Wednesday against the Portland Timbers, the sports facility that for the last decade bore the home improvement chain’s name will be re-christened the StubHub Center.

“Soccer is the key sport in the rest of the world,” StubHub spokesman Glenn Lehrman said. “Strategically, it made sense to put our name on a soccer stadium as we try to expand internationally.”
