Effective June 1, the Home Depot Center will be no more.
StubHub, one of the nation's largest ticketing companies, has entered into an agreement with AEG that will make it the new naming rights partner of The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills. The 125-acre multi-sport facility will become StubHub Center in June, with the first official game at the renamed stadium being the LA Galaxy's home match against the Portland Timbers on June 19.
The 27,000-seat Home Depot Center, the home of both the Galaxy and Chivas USA, was opened in 2003 and has hosted five MLS Cups. The final match scheduled to be played in the Home Depot Center will be on May 26 when the Galaxy host the Seattle Sounders.
Financial details of the multi-year agreement were not disclosed.
