Event Details

Join SPIRE on October 24 for an early look at the future home of the - Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) - Banc of California Stadium. LAFC is building a 22,000-seat soccer-specific stadium, bringing $350 million in private investment to South Los Angeles. SPIRE members will get to walk the walk like the players, including stepping onto the 86,000 sq. ft of natural bermuda grass that makes up the playing field and strolling through the locker rooms of the first open-air stadium built in the city since 1962. 

We will put on hard hats for a top-to-bottom tour of this construction site and get special access to the Founder's Club Level, the concessions and security spaces, the nightclub and more premium spaces. We will learn about the 5 million pounds of steel that will go into the construction of the LEED Silver certified stadium building that boasts 140,000 sq. ft. of improved public open space. Opening in 2018, the Banc of California Stadium is so much more than a stadium and you will get to see why. Stadium ownership includes Stanford's own Goodwin Gaw (MS '94), Kirk Lacob ('10), Mark Leschly (MBA '95) and Jason Sugarman ('94).

The tour will end up in the stadium's mock-up yard where members will have the opportunity to view raw and finished forms of the stadium design and ask questions of the LAFC Leadership Team. You won't want to miss the opportunity to see the work the LAFC is doing to develop a world-class, forward-thinking sports organization to bring the fastest growing professional sport, soccer, in America to one of the largest and most diverse markets in the world, Los Angeles.

After the tour, we will gather at the nearby Lab Gastropub for gourmet comfort food and beverages on the patio. If you plan to attend the Fall ULI Conference (10.23-10.26) and will be in the Los Angeles area, it would be great to have you attend.
