The Home Depot Center
The Home Depot Center is a multiple-use sports complex located on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills in Carson, California. It is located approximately 10 miles south of Downtown Los Angeles. Its title sponsor is hardware retailer The Home Depot. The $150 million complex was developed and is operated by the Anschutz Entertainment Group.

The 27,000 seat main stadium was designed specifically for soccer. It is home to both the Los Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA of Major League Soccer. It was also home to the defunct Los Angeles Sol of Women's Professional Soccer. The Home Depot Center was the second stadium designed specifically for soccer in the MLS era. When the venue opened in June 2003 as the new home of the Galaxy, a number of special events took place in celebration. Pelé was in attendance at the opening match along with many dignitaries from the soccer world, and celebrities. Both the United States women's and men's national soccer teams often use the facility for training camps and select home matches. It was the site of the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup final. It hosted the 2003 MLS All-Star Game and the MLS Cup in 2003, 2004, and 2008. The Home Depot Center hosted the first three editions (2004”“06) of the USA Sevens, an annual competition in the Sevens version of rugby union that is part of the IRB Sevens World Series. It also is the location for the State Championship Bowl Games for high school football in the state of California. It also served as the host facility for the first two seasons of Spike TV's Pros vs Joes reality sports contests. In addition to the soccer stadium, The Home Depot Center features a 2,500-seat velodrome, a 13,000-seat tennis stadium and an outdoor track and field facility that has 20,000 permanent seats and has seated up to 22,000. The Los Angeles Riptide of Major League Lacrosse played their home games at the track and field stadium. It is also the home of the adidas Running Club, a member of the USA Elite Running Circuit, and the Adidas Track Classic. The Home Depot Center is also home to Athletes' Performance which trains athletes in a variety of sports. The soccer and tennis stadiums of the Center have also served as the main venues for ESPN's Summer X Games.
