Home Depot Center to be renamed StubHub Center in June

The place that has been a home to the Los Angeles Galaxy, Chivas USA and the U.S. national team is getting a name change.

The Home Depot Center will be renamed the StubHub Center starting this June, ending a 10-year run for what has become a household stadium name across the U.S. soccer community. Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the venue and the Galaxy, announced the changing of the naming-rights guard on Monday.

Located in Carson, Calif., The Home Depot Center has hosted five MLS Cup finals -- the most of any venue -- including the last two, which were both won by the Galaxy. The soccer-specific stadium at the facility has also been the home for Chivas USA since the club's inception in 2005 while being a regular January home for the U.S. men's national team's annual training camp.

According to AEG's announcement, the first match in the re-branded venue will be the June 19 clash between the Galaxy and Portland Timbers.
