Staples Center Arena lit up at night in Downtown LA

Staples Center

Home to the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers of the NBA—as well as the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL and the Los Angeles Spark of the WNBA—the Staples Center opened in the fall of 1999, finally replacing the Great Western Forum in Inglewood. The 5 million facility hosts over 250 events and over 4 million guests annually, with a range of events, from pro sports and live music to boxing and special events—including the GRAMMY Awards, twelve of the last thirteen years.
