Home to the USC football team since 1923, and a designated National Historic Landmark, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has the most diverse and all encompassing history of any stadium in the world. It has hosted two Super Bowls (I and VII), a World Series (1959), and two Olympiads (X and XXIII). Along with the adjacent Sports Arena, which closed its doors in 2016, the Coliseum is credited with helping to start the migration of professional sports teams to the West Coast. The complex provided a home for the Rams (1946-79, returning again in 2016), the Dodgers (1958-61), and the Lakers (1960-67), and has also been home to a variety of Southern California teams, including: the Raiders (1982-94), UCLA Football (1933-81), the Chargers (1960), Clippers (1984-99), USC Basketball (1959-2006), UCLA Basketball (1959-65), the Cobras (1988, Arena Football), Ice Dogs (1995-96, IHL), Sharks (1972-74, WHA), Stars (1968-70, ABA) and Kings (1967, NHL). The Coliseum has also welcomed a wide range of diverse and legendary events, such as entertainer Evel Knievel (1973), a Papal Mass by Pope John Paul II (1987), Nelson Mandela’s “Crusade against Apartheid” (1990), visits from several U.S. Presidents (FDR, JFK, and Reagan, to name a few), and endless sold-out concerts from such iconic artists as Pink Floyd, U2, The Who, Metallica, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, and many more. Come find out why we are known as the "Greatest Stadium in the World"!

Home of the Olympics and a stunning facility that is iconic in Los Angeles. I have done several large "live" projects in this space and it has a unique feel all it's own. Worth a visit....they do have guided tours.

Old stadium in downtown LA. Parking during football games is expensive. Overall it is well maintained and the atmosphere is awesome. Right next to Metro station.

We went to see the rams and the saints play. Easy to park about a 10 minute walk to the collisuem. Plenty of food options. Many rest rooms. Seats are just fine we were in row 19 , section 20. A great game and experience.

Came to watch my Texans play the Los Angeles Rams and it was a tough loss but the coliseum is awesome. Full of history you cannot go wrong visiting this place. It is truly breathtaking in some way.

It's a great place to take pictures and watch a football game. However, parts of it is in decay, especially the bench section. I've never been to a professional stadium where there are benches. They are old with peeling paint, and prices are not cheap...More

Hello. We went for a free event so not sure on ticketing. Parked on site in the underground garage just few meters from the stadium.
