About STAPLES Center

L.A. LIVE is anchored by STAPLES Center, the world's most successful arena. Since its debut on Oct. 16, 1999, STAPLES Center has changed the perception of downtown Los Angeles and has completely transformed the adjacent South Park neighborhood. Home to four professional sports teams (Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Sparks and Los Angeles Kings) the 20,000-seat arena hosts 240 events and over 4 million visitors annually. STAPLES Center has presented virtually every major indoor sporting event in Southern California including ESPN's X Games, HBO Boxing, the Pac-10 Basketball Championship Tournament, U.S. Figure Skating Championships, the NHL and NBA All-Star Weekends and the WTA Championships.

In its relatively short history, STAPLES Center has also become the premier venue for musical performances, family entertainment, televised award shows and many major events in the region. Under AEG's management, STAPLES Center has welcomed such major touring acts as U2, Paul McCartney, The Eagles, Prince, Justin Timberlake, Garth Brooks, Cirque du Soleil, The GRAMMY® Awards and the Democratic National Convention, among others.
