History and description
Dignity Health Sports Park, until 2019 known as Stubhub Center and until 2013 as The Home Depot Center, officially opened on 7 June 2003 with a match between the LA Galaxy and Colorado Rapids (2-0).
Dignity Health Sports Park is part of a $150 million development that includes tennis, athletics, and cycling facilities.
Until 2014, Dignity Health Sports Park was the home of both LA Galaxy and Chivas USA, but then became the sole home of the former when the latter ceased operations. Los Angeles’ newest franchise, LAFC, does not play at Dignity Health Sports Park but instead at the new Banc of California Stadium.
Between 2017 and 2019, Dignity Health Sports Park was the home of NFL side Los Angeles Chargers while awaiting the completion of the new Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park.
How to get to Dignity Health Sports Park
Dignity Health Sports Park is located in the Los Angeles suburb of Carlson, just over 13 miles south of Los Angeles downtown.
If arriving from the north (LA Downtown, Pasadena, Glendale), take the 110 Freeway south, and, about 11 miles south of Downtown, the 91 Freeway east. A little over a mile later exit at Avalon Blvd. Turn left onto Avalon Blvd and again left on Victoria Street. The stadium and parking areas lie on the right side of the road.
If arriving from the north-west (LAX, Santa Monica, West LA), take the 405 Freeway south and exit for Vermont. Make a left onto 190th St. which becomes Victoria Street. Continue past Avalon Blvd. The stadium and parking areas lie on the right.

Reaching Dignity Health Sports Park by public transport is not easy. The best way is arguably to take the metro silver line to Artesia Transit Center and take a bus or taxi from there. Bus 52, 205, and 246 pass by the stadium on Avalon Blvd or Victoria Street. The bus ride from Artesia Transport Center will take just over 5 minutes.
Bus 52 connects the stadium directly with downtown Los Angeles, however the area the bus passes through some rough areas hence care should be taken especially at night.
