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"!

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.

Built for the 1932 summer Olympics, the Memorial Coliseum is a great place to take in a football game (ideally a USC match against a rival like UCLA). It gets loud, there's a great selection of food on the lower perimeter of the stadium and...More

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

I've been in stadiums all around the USA. This one is just greater - the experience is heightened by the Olympic structure. And there is nothing like the sound of the Trojan Marching Band (saw Utah vs USC). Great game. People were extremely friendly when...More

A very different type of stadium than what I'm accustom to. We attended the Rams vs. Seahawks and I'd never seen such a structure for sports with all of the vendors outside of the stadium. Way too hot for me with way too much sun....More

The stadium is still nice for such an old place. The seats were comfortable. My main complaint is the parking and the dangerous areas surrounding the coliseum (but the LAPD did a good job of having officers on virtually every relevant corner when the game...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.
