Beginning Jan. 1, the home stadium of the LA Galaxy will be named Dignity Health Sports Park. The naming rights are a part of a 10-year deal, according to the LA Times.
This is the third official name for the Stadium since 2003, which opened as the Home Depot Center and has been StubHub Center for the last six years.
In a statement released by the club, Dan Beckerman, President and CEO of Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the stadium, said, “Dignity Health is dedicated to providing excellent care for those in need, and as the new naming rights partner for one of AEG’s marquee facilities, we look forward to working with them to amplify our efforts to make a positive and lasting difference for all our fans. Sports has the power to bring people together, and Dignity Health is the perfect partner to help us highlight and support the LA community that surrounds the LA Galaxy and Dignity Health Sports Park.”
The deal will also include first aid services at the stadium and support for the Galaxy’s youth soccer outreach programs, including local soccer tournaments LA Galaxy Cup and Copa LA.
The LA Galaxy also will make regular visits to Dignity Health hospitals to meet with patients and hospital staff, and the club will host viewing parties for patients at Dignity Health hospitals for select LA Galaxy matches throughout the season. Dignity Health will also be involved in the LA Galaxy Foundation.
