“Banc of California Stadium is an unprecedented success story,” LAFC Owner and President Tom Penn said in a statement. “Our stadium will provide one of the best fan experiences in the world, and I am grateful to everyone who is helping us open the stadium nearly a month ahead of schedule and on-budget, guaranteeing we play every home match at Banc of California Stadium.
“I cannot wait to see and feel the electric atmosphere at Banc of California Stadium on April 29. There will not be a sports experience like this in Los Angeles.”
The $350 million Banc of California Stadium is a state of the art, world-class venue located in Exposition Park. It is the first open-air stadium built in the city in over 30 years, and will have an intimate atmosphere with the steepest seating bowl in MLS (34 degrees), seats only 12-feet away from the touchline and an 86,000-square foot field of natural Bermuda grass.
