The L.A. Galaxy and Chargers won’t be playing at StubHub Center next year. As of Jan. 1, the stadium on the campus of Cal State Dominguez Hills in Carson will have its name changed to Dignity Health Sports Park, thanks to a sponsorship agreement announced Thursday by AEG, the company that built and manages the facility.
Dan Beckerman, CEO of AEG, said in a statement the company looks forward to working with Dignity health “to amplify our efforts to make a positive and lasting difference for our fans.”
“Sports has the power to bring people together, and Dignity Health is the perfect partner to help us highlight and support the L.A. community that surrounds the L.A. Galaxy and Dignity Health Sports Park.”
Financial details of the naming-rights agreement were not disclosed. According to AEG, Dignity Health will become the Galaxy’s officials health care partner, and the agreement also includes the “implementation of a wide range of health and wellness programs.”
Lloyd Dean, president and CEO of Dignity Health, said the company hopes to “promote greater health and wellness for all” with the agreement, through efforts such as sponsoring youth sports leagues, offering health services or donating to charitable organizations.
The stadium is primarily home to the Galaxy Major League Soccer team, but it is also serving as a temporary home for the Chargers while a stadium for the team and the Rams is being built in Inglewood.
