Arena Arena

Since October 1999, Arena (previously STAPLES Center) has established itself as the world’s premier sports and entertainment center. It is home to four professional sports franchises — The NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings and the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks — and hosts over 250 high-profile national and international events annually, such as the NBA All-Star Games, NHL All-Star Games, World Figure Skating Championships, WWE, Disney on Ice, boxing, and the annual GRAMMY® Awards. Arena is also a top-tier destination for concerts including performances by some of the world’s most renowned artists such as Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Prince, Paul McCartney, The Who, Garth Brooks, Adele, Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Michael Bublé, Drake, Shawn Mendes, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, among others. A multi-year major refurbishment is underway to ensure that Arena remains one of the world’s most innovative entertainment venues.
