The LAFC Performance Center embodies the culture of the club and the city, both aesthetically and functionally. Coinciding with the inaugural season of the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC), this 30,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility became the new home for the club in which to practice and train. The design emphasizes the integration of all LAFC personnel, creating a place for staff and players to work, plan, and collaborate as colleagues. Indoor/outdoor connectivity and transparency are at the root of the design. Every space that faces the practice pitch maximizes opportunities for players to live, work, and play in the optimum Los Angeles climate. Located in the heart of the city at Cal State LA, the LAFC Performance Center partnership with the University aligns with their mutual mission to engage directly with neighborhoods and communities in Los Angeles.
