About Dignity Health Sports Park
Dignity Health Sports Park
The big arena with the strange little name, Dignity Health Sports Park - formerly StubHub Center - is one of the jewels of the Dominguez Hills campus of California State University. Part of a massive sports complex, the big draw for this park is a massive, purpose-built soccer pitch for Major League Soccer’s LA Galaxy, but there is a lot to learn about this world-class sports complex.
History of Dignity Health Sports Park
Built in 2003, this venue has gone through a couple of names in its relatively short existence. When it opened its doors, it was originally known as the Home Depot Center. A decade later, naming rights changed hands, and the arena became known as the StubHub Center. This changed yet again in 2019 when it earned its current name. Naming rights agreements being what they are, it’s almost guaranteed this venue will have a few more names as the years go by.
What Makes Dignity Health Sports Park So Special?
This arena complex is unique in that it provides opportunities to take in not just pro athletes going through their paces but also amateurs, Olympic, and Collegiate athletes as well. Yes, the biggest draw will almost always be the LA Galaxy, but its location on CSU Dominguez Hills and its ability to host tennis, track and field, and even track cycling events makes this multi-purpose arena complex truly special.
