Los Angeles, California
BMO Stadium (formerly Banc of California Stadium) is the home of Major League Soccer’s expansion team, the Los Angeles Football Club. Gensler designed the 22,000-seat facility for L.A.’s Exposition Park, anchoring the Figueroa corridor and capitalizing on great views of the downtown skyline as the home of “L.A.’s Team.” An emphasis on an exciting game-day experience captures a more personal relationship between players and fans by creating an intimate European-style character in this state-of-the-art facility. Significant ancillary programmatic elements offer entertainment, retail, and dining opportunities to stadium-goers, as well as for visitors to the park, the nearby museums, and the University of Southern California campus. The stadium opened in April 2018.
