StubHub Center is southern California’s home of world-class competition and training facilities for amateur, Olympic, collegiate and professional athletes. Managed by AEG Facilities, the $150 million, privately financed facility was developed by AEG on a 125-acre site on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) in Carson, California. StubHub Center features an 8,000-seat tennis stadium, a 27,000-seat stadium for soccer, football and other athletic competitions and outdoor concerts; a 2,000-seat facility for track & field and a 2,450-seat indoor Velodrome – the VELO Sports Center – for track cycling. StubHub Center is home to two Major League Soccer teams, the four-time MLS Cup Champion LA Galaxy and Chivas USA. StubHub Center is also home of the United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) High Performance Training Center, the national team training headquarters for the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) and EXOS, an international training center for elite and professional athletes.
Since opening on June 1, 2003, with the inaugural Home Depot Track & Field Invitational, StubHub Center has hosted some of the finest national and international competitions in the world. In the facility's first year of operation, it hosted the 2003 MLS All-Star Game, 2003 MLS Cup game and the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup championship match. Since then, StubHub Center has hosted major soccer tournaments and matches, including the qualifying for the prestigious Copa Libertadores - InterLiga, SuperLiga, CONCACAF Men's & Women's Gold Cup matches, the World Series of Football and the annual Super Clásico, featuring Los Angeles' intra-city rivalry, the LA Galaxy versus Chivas USA. StubHub Center hosted the LA Women's Tennis Championships presented by Herbalife, a Tier II Sony Ericsson WTA Tour event, showcasing tennis' most elite female athletes, from 2004 to 2009. The facility is also home to the nation's premier indoor velodrome and hosted the UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classics 2005-2007, and, in 2005, hosted the World Championships.
StubHub Center's commitment to athletics and training also extends to the surrounding communities. Tennis courts, soccer training fields and a three-mile jogging trail with 12 fitness stations around the perimeter of the development is available to local residents as well as other facilities and amenities. Through foundations established by AEG-operated entities such as the Galaxy, the Los Angeles Kings (NHL) and STAPLES Center, more than $5 million has been pledged to community organizations in the last seven years, including new donations targeting the local Carson community established by the StubHub Center Charitable Foundation.
StubHub Center is southern California's legacy to sports, building character through competition.
