History and description
Banc of California Stadium is the new stadium of Los Angeles expansion team Los Angeles FC. The stadium was part of LAFC’s proposal to join the MLS as a new franchise team.
Plans were announced in May 2015, six months after LAFC had been granted the MLS franchise. LA broke ground on the stadium in August 2016, and around the same time announced a naming rights sponsorship deal resulting in the name Banc of California Stadium.
Banc of California Stadium officially opened on 18 April 2018 with a ceremony but it took until the 29th for the first match to be played: a league match between LAFC and Seattle Sounders (1-0). The stadium came at a cost of $350 million.
The stadium hosted two first round group games during the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup. It will be one of the venues of the 2028 Olympics, hosting the soccer tournament.
