The Los Angeles Galaxy will play at the Dignity Health Sports Park next season after facility owner AEG signed a 10-year deal with hospital operator Dignity Health.
It will be the third name change for the stadium since opening 15 years ago. The arena in Carson, California, was originally known as the Home Depot Center before being branded the StubHub Center.
As part of the deal, Dignity will provide first-aid services at the complex, operate a health clinic during the Galaxy’s season and sponsor youth programmes.
LA Galaxy players will make regular visits to Dignity hospitals and the MLS club will host viewing parties for patients at Dignity Health hospitals for select matches throughout the season.
“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,” said Dan Beckerman, president and chief executive of AEG in a media release.
“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.”
Terms of the partnership were not disclosed.
