Coliseum History
The Coliseum opened its doors to Los Angeles in June of 1923. Some 5 months later, on October 6,1923, the first football game was played in the stadium, with the University of Southern California hosting Pomona College before a crowd of 12,836, with the Trojans prevailing, 23-7. It was a modest beginning for a venue that would later play a very prominent role in college and professional football.

The Coliseum has served as the home field for the University of Southern California Trojans since 1923. Additionally, countless historic events have taken place inside these venerable walls during nine decades of celebrated history. It is the only facility in the world to play host to two Olympiads (X and XXIII), two Super Bowls (I and VII) and one World Series (1959).

Along with the adjacent Sports Arena, the Coliseum is credited with helping to start the migration of professional sports teams to the West Coast. The complex provided a home for the Rams (from Cleveland, 1946-79 NFL), the Dodgers (from Brooklyn, 1958-61, MLB), and the Lakers (from Minneapolis, 1960-67, NBA), and has also been home to a variety of Southern California teams as wellthe Raiders (from Oakland, 1982-94, NFL), UCLA Football (1933-81) and was the expansion home of the Chargers (1960, NFL) the Clippers (from San Diego, 1984-99, NBA), USC Basketball (1959-2006, NCAA), UCLA Basketball (1959-65, NCAA), the Cobras (1988, Arena Football), the Ice Dogs (1995-96, IHL), the Sharks (1972-74, WHA), the Stars (1968-70, ABA) and Kings (1967, NHL).

In 1984, the State of California and the United States Government declared the Coliseum a State and Federal Historical Landmark for its contribution to the history of California, as well as to that of the United States as a whole.

On March 29, 2008, the Los Angeles Dodgers hosted an exhibition game against the Boston Red Sox in front of a crowd of 115,300, setting a Guiness World Record for largest attendance ever at a baseball game. Other historic events include Billy Graham's appearance in 1963 in front of 134,254 (still an all-time Coliseum record), Nelson Mandela's triumphant return to the United States, the first ever Papal Mass by Pope John Paul II in 1987 and the 1976 Bicentennial Spectacular,

The Coliseum has also hosted decades of memorable concerts, including a record five sold out nights of Bruce Springsteen in 1985 (total attendance, 322,986) four sold out nights for the Rolling Stones, U2, Metallica, The Who, Pink Floyd, Metallica, Kid Rock and more. It is also the site of the Electric Daisy Carnival - an electronic music festival that on June 28, 2008 drew more than 60,000 people to the Coliseum.

A new mark for the highest paid attendance (63,101) for a Latin music concert in the United States was set on March 18, 2006, as RBD took the Coliseum stage.

Known also for its place in International Soccer Competition, the Coliseum has been the site of many memorable matches. The all-time Coliseum (as well as National) attendance record for a soccer match was set on August 6, 2006, as 92,650 fans turned out to see a double-header featuring Chivas vs. Barcelona and Chivas USA vs. the New England Revolution. The crowd eclipsed the previous mark of 91,585, set in 1999 as Mexico took on Argentina.
