Many stories have been written in those sports complexes in Los Angeles and they are a total must-see for any fan sport visiting L.A.
5 Best Places in Los Angeles for a sport fan you must visit :
1. SoFi Stadium
Address: 1001 Stadium Dr, Inglewood, CA 90301
Whether you’re into the NFL or not, SoFi is truly insane. One of the most recent in the United States, it is located a few kilometers from the heart of the city, in Inglewood. This stadium is considered an open space, since despite having a dome, many of the accesses are outside, so you can rest easy on your visit. This stadium has the peculiarity of being underground, that is, the field and part of the stands were built underground.
In addition to being the home of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers, this space has been the venue for concerts, other sporting events .It has more than 60,000 seats for sporting events, luxury suites, boxes and amenities that make your visit very entertaining. Special mention, the spectacular screen that covers 100 yards of the playing field and is circular so you can see it from any corner of the stadium.
2. Crypto.com Arena (formerly the Staples Center)
Address: 1111 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90015
It doesn’t matter if you like the NBA or not, the Crypto.com Arena is a MUST when you visit Los Angeles. At the time it was one of the largest and most spectacular in the entire league, in addition to being located in the Downtown of the city, very close you can see the Xbox Plaza or the Microsoft Theater, the restaurant corridor in the area and above all, If you’re a little lucky, you’ll run into the celebrities who hang out in the area before basketball games, especially when LeBron James’ Lakers play.
After your visit, we recommend you walk around the area a bit and enjoy the variety of restaurants that are there. My recommendation: Dine at Katsuya, LA , a Japanese restaurant with a California twist.
3. Memorial Coliseum
Address: 3911 S. Figueroa St., L.A
Memorial Coliseum is one of the most popular in the history of sports. Unforgettable Olympic sports milestones took place there, the Mexican national team has played countless times and the magic of college soccer happens every weekend with the USC Trojans, one of the most popular universities in the NCAA. Today, with a little less sports activities, it is a complex that is being renewed little by little but has not lost its essence and history.
You can search for tickets to musical events, NASCAR, NCAA and much more, in addition to having a tour of the facilities that will allow you to see the city of LA from the heights. An incredible experience in a complex whose design was inspired by the Roman Colosseum and from your arrival it will impress you with those walls that match the doors of the famous complex in Rome and that tell the story of those who left their mark both in American sports and in the two Olympic games that this magnificent stadium has hosted. Tip: Worth knowing about the 1923 club. It is a unique, premier space in which members can experience USC game day.
4. BMO Stadium
Address: 3939 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90037
The soccer market is growing little by little in the United States. With a city as big as Los Angeles, it is very easy to have a couple of teams in the same one, that is the case with the Galaxy and the FC, the only difference is that the first one plays more to the south of the city, towards Inglewood in Dignity Health Sports Park and FC is minutes from the heart of the city.
BMO stadium is one of the most recent additions to the list of sports complexes in the US and has just over 32,000 seats, a box area, a standing gallery and, of course, a VIP area where you can enjoy drinks , incredible views of the countryside, pool area and much more. BMO Stadium also has a field-level dining area to enjoy before kickoff. So, no matter how much of an MLS fan you are, you’re sure to have a good time in this stadium and, what’s more, it’s very likely that when you visit the official store, you’ll leave with a team souvenir.
5. Dodgers Stadium
Address: 1000 Vin Scully Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Above all because of the history it has in relation to Mexican baseball players, it is having a bit of that essence that was left over from the glory days of “Toro” Valenzuela, for example. Plus, it’s in the Echo Park area, one of the largest green spaces in the city, and it’s less than three miles from downtown LA.
Dining tip : You HAVE to sneak out for a french dip sandwich from Philippe’s which is minutes from Dodgers Stadium and a legend in the city.
Los Angeles has many attractions and places to visit that you cannot miss, this is just a taste of what you can experience if you are a sports fan and you like to remember those incredible moments that you have surely seen on television but that now, you could enjoy from the field level or in a bleacher at one of the world’s newest and most technologically advanced sports complexes.
