The naming rights to the Carson, Calif., soccer complex will be changing this summer, 10 years after it opened as home of the Los Angeles Galaxy.The place that has been a home to the Los Angeles Galaxy, Chivas USA and the U.S. national team is getting a name change.
The Home Depot Center will be renamed the StubHub Center starting this June, ending a 10-year run for what has become a household stadium name across the U.S. soccer community. Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the venue and the Galaxy, announced the changing of the naming-rights guard on Monday.
Located in Carson, Calif., The Home Depot Center has hosted five MLS Cup finals -- the most of any venue -- including the last two, which were both won by the Galaxy. The soccer-specific stadium at the facility has also been the home for Chivas USA since the club's inception in 2005 while being a regular January home for the U.S. men's national team's annual training camp.
According to AEG's announcement, the first match in the re-branded venue will be the June 19 clash between the Galaxy and Portland Timbers.
