Just Another Day In SouthLA
The Banc of California Stadium will host its first LA Football Club Game against Seattle Sounders April 29th at 6pm. The recently completed $350 million, 22,000-seat, Gensler-designed stadium has been under construction since 2016. The site was previously occupied by the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. A ribbon-cutting ceremony held on April 18th marked the completion of the 20 months of construction. LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, City Council President Herb Wesson, Councilmember and Coliseum Commission President Curren Price, MLS commissioner Don Garber, and Co-Owner Ervin “Magic” Johnson were just a few present for the ribbon cutting ceremony. The new stadium is the newest landmark in Exposition Park, along with the LA Memorial Coliseum, the California African American Museum, the California Science Center, and the Natural History Museum of LA County and the under construction Lucas Museum of Narrative Art.
