STAPLES Center History

Los Angeles is kind of a city known for having plenty of options for entertainment, but locals know that one of the places to be remains the STAPLES Center, as it's a spot where you can catch world-class athletes, unbelievable concerts and more throughout the course of the year. There is nothing quite like being there when the game is on the line and the Lakers or Kings are digging in with a passionate crowd at their back, but the history of the STAPLES Center is also packed with memorable non-sporting events that make this a multifaceted venue that has a little something for everybody. From public memorials to Michael Jackson to top-tier boxing matches to plenty of other events, you never know what's going to come up next at the STAPLES Center.

But no matter what else goes on, many consider this primarily a basketball venue for a reason, as the Staples Center is home to two NBA teams, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers, the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL, and the Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA. There is much more going on each year at Staples Center outside of those teams as the arena also hosts college basketball games and tournaments, boxing matches, WWE events, concerts, ice shows, award shows, the X Games, and much more. Once you're there in the stands watching the big show the way it was meant to be seen, you'll understand loud and clear what all the buzz is about.


STAPLES Center Events

There is perhaps no other venue in the United States that offers as wide a range of events as does the Staples Center. Not only does it host the home games of the Lakers, Clippers, Kings, and Sparks but it also has hosted the Pac-12 College Basketball Tournament, the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, the Summer X Games, the U.S. Ice Skating Championships and much more. If star studded award shows are more up your alley Staples has those needs covered to as it has hosted both the Grammy Awards and the Latin Grammys along with the 2000 Democratic National Convention.

Don't forget about concerts, though, as Concerts are also a big part of the annual schedule at Staples Center. Over the years, superstar acts like Jay Z, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, John Mayer, Bruce Springsteen, and many others have played here and the calendar of events is always absolutely loaded with unbelievable shows that have fans coming in from all over.


Trivia

Did you know that the STAPLES Center has already hosted two NHL All-Star Games and the Stanley Cup Finals?

Basketball may be a huge part of the calendar from year to year, but the NHL also reigns supreme at the STAPLES Center. As host to the 2004 and 2011 NHL All-Star Games and the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals, which ended in a Kings championship, this is a place that always seems to have one memorable hockey game or another about to face-off.


The Fan Experience

The Staples Center is impressive in and of itself but it is also part of a four million square foot plot of land in downtown Los Angeles known as L.A. Live. The area is dedicated to bring top of the line entertainment, restaurants and bars to Los Angeles' visitors and residents and makes a trip to Staples Center much more exciting as you have a plethora of places to visit before and after the event you attend at Staples Center. But mainly it all comes down to the entertainment that goes on inside the arena, as there are so many options in different categories that it tends to have a little bit of something for everybody.
