About
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"!

    Amazing Tour
    Do the tour. It’s amazingly informative plus you get the added bonus of fantastic views of the LA skyline and Hollywood sign (off in the distance) from the top level. Tours are only on Mondays and Tuesdays so plan accordingly.

    Absolutely incredible experience
    My son and I were visiting LA to take in a couple baseball games and decided at the last minute to tour the LA Memorial Coliseum. The tour was truly extraordinary. Our tour "guide" was actually one of the organizational leaders, which allowed for an amazing experience. Tina first took us up the Scholarship Tower and to the 1923 Club level. The view of the city and the stadium was incredible. We visited the suites at several levels, the outdoor seating and walked about the Peristyle. No wording I provide here can capture how impressed we were with the experience. Thanks Tina for sharing all the history, the stories about lighting the torch and much more. I highly recommend any true sports fan visit this institution!

    Great Tour but beware about Will Call tickets
    I booked online and had to pick up the tickets at Will Call. However, Will Call only operates on game days. You have to go to the box office at Gate 29 to get your tickets. Beware the box office does not open until 10 am so if you are on the first tour at 10 am you have to get your tickets first. In my case the guide very helpfully called the box office and we went round there and I got my ticket. The tour was great, we started at the bar at the top of the grandstand. We saw a box that costs $10 million for ten years and then went into one of the suites which are $40 million. We then went down onto the field and into the home and away team locker rooms.

I had the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum tour on my to do list when visiting LA because of the long history of the venue, and my tour with Leah did not disappoint.

The recent upgrades just add to the already spectacular venue, the tour is thorough and a decent length of time. Leah showed us all the ins and outs of the place and knows her stuff. My family with me walked away very impressed even though I dragged them along.

Do arrive early, we had the old arrival gate on the tickets instead of the new tour entrance but thankfully Leah was waiting for us there just in case. 10/10 would do again.

Not everyday you can walk into a two times Olympiad venue. But thanks to Richard, front gate opens and it was pretty much a private viewing of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The 1920's construction style is certainly imposing. The great entrance flanked with the stones from Coliseum Rome and Altis Olympia Greece. The placards of the Olympians of the 1932 and 1984 Games. It's all history. Don't forget this is also home of Super Bowl, NFL, MLB, USC and a memorial to Los Angeles veterans of World War I.

But it will become a 3 times venue in 2028 when the Games return.

The Coliseum is a huge and legendary venue, home to two Olympics, two Super Bowls, and a number of other historic sporting events. I hadn't been there in many years, so when I went to see the USC-Fresno State game this season, I was pleasantly surprised with the many recent renovations. It is still very much a classic stadium, but the seats, sound system, and jumbotrons are all new. Parking can be difficult and expensive, but you can easily take the Metro E Line to the Expo Park/USC station. From there it's a quick and safe walk to the Coliseum. Overall, a great place to see a football game.

Excellent concert venue. We recently visited LA to see Ramstein at this lovely open air facility. Lots of gates made getting in a breeze. The venue staff were friendly, and the facilities were clean. The historic feel was cool too.

We attended a USC football game. We purchased on campus parking through a link on the USC website - a short walk to the stadium. The food concessions were limited. Although hot dogs were listed on the menu at two stands that I visited, neither had a hot dog.

Even though we lost the game and our QB, we really enjoyed the atmosphere. Fans, security, vendors and pretty much everybody was SUPER nice, both before and after the game. I was glad I got to go to a game there while it was still standing and before the new one opened!

It’s probably the last time I will see the Rams at their original home. At the end of 2020 they move to play at their brand new multi-billion dollar home in Inglewood. Where the sound of “Whose house is this...? RAMS HOUSE!!!” will be a chant that makes absolute sense. Built as a memorial to veterans of the First World War in 1921; it will get the opportunity to do what it was designed to one more time in 2028... to host a Summer Olympics. I went along on a beautiful LA Winter’s evening to see the Rams take on the Ravens. Not the result we hoped for. The Ravens looked unstoppable all evening and the Rams were effectively out of play off contention by the end of the evening. But the atmosphere was superb nevertheless and the $14 cans of beer were being washed down in healthy quantities before those cans are recycled and turned into RSJ joints for Inglewood’s new retractable root. Los Angeles Tycoonary at it’s beautiful, lovely, American Dream best. Everyone coming together with smiles on their faces to see a quality of show that only Americans know how to host. Aloe Blacc put on a superb half time show and despite the result already sliding away; the crowd were on the feet with premium beer in hand. The chilli dogs were superb and made out of pure premium 100% beef. They were half the price of the can of beer so I guess everything evened itself out... apart from Jared Goff still hasn’t married me. See you in Inglewood... shout it loud and proud: “RAMS HOUSE!!”... Howay the Lads and we are Geordies!! See you soon Los Angeles or should I say (Geordie Shore)...
