Looks like LAFC will be getting a nice 250 million 22000 seat stadium at sports arena site in 2018.

Who do they get as their head coach? I am putting my money on Jurgen Klinsmann. Jurgen could appoint an interim manager until after the 2018 WC, and then take the reins over at LAFC.

Ehhhh Galaxy are building one of the Top Academies in the World right now. They will always rule LA who cares how many old stars they bring they will still suck. Just look at nycfc. And 22K ??? Really thought they would be the next big team here. LA Galaxy has 30K capacity stadium and will always attract the best.

Somebody is getting nervous. Galaxy doesn't even have the best academy in MLS.

Galaxy already brings in old stars. So I don't understand that nonsensical comment.

Yea yea.... They are the next chivas USA #2.. people will go to their games the first couple years heck even me then it will decline... No matter what everyone says LA Galaxy is still the longest more consistent supported club in MLS... And even tonight a huge crowd came out to see women's USA v Mexico with about 95% supporting USA... Where else do you get such a diverse crowd ??? Only in LA/south cali... You can get 80k plus fans for USA, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, top euro teams, el Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Colombia, Japan, China, south Korea, ect..... Any sports event... The best part In Soccer LA Galaxy will always have the main support... Just like all other 2nd LA teams and I been a huge Clippers fan for most of my life but I know we will never compete vs Lakers...

I don't know enough about LA to comment but I thought they wanted a downtown stadium and this doesn't look all that close to downtown.

For people with more knowledge of the LA area, what is this location like? Do you think this is a good place for a new stadium?

It's right next to the LA Coliseum and USC campus. Not far from downtown. They have more than enough public transportation feeding into the complex. And then you have College students right there to go to LAFC games. It's actually a very good spot.

Great location. And if one of the NFL teams move nearby with there big stadium 22k is enough as they can play on the football field to get the 60-80k games if they build a need for that.

One big problem will be the Parking!!! There is very little parking around the coliseum and Usc campus. Unless they build a parking structure or something people will have a hard time getting there. But 22k seems fairly small. With the amount of soccer fans here a 30k plus should be made with the option to expand.

The young soccer careers of Rubio Rubin and Brady Scott are headed in completely opposite directions.
