BMO Stadium

BMO Stadium

Located within historic Exposition Park, the new BMO Stadium, formerly named Banc of California Stadium, provides home to the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC), the City’s own Major League Soccer team. Studio-MLA led the design of the site by exploring the unique historic context of Exposition Park and the Memorial Coliseum. To accentuate the connection of this urban park into its surrounding neighborhood we created distinctive edges for promenades, flexible plazas, and gardens. The series of entry plazas curates the arrival experience and contribute to the visual identity of the Stadium. The Northwest Plaza, which is the most proximate to the Memorial Coliseum provides a large flexible space for a variety of programmable events. The Stadium also includes a team store and new food commissary called Fields LA providing a distinctly Los Angeles based offering of food and beverage amenities year round and features a roof deck garden for additional event space and enhance the game day experience.
