Chivas-Galaxy stadium needs new name
CARSON, Calif. -- The home of the Los Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA could have a new name by the end of the year.
The $70 million, 10-year naming rights agreement for the Home Depot Center expires in May, and Jean Niemi, a spokeswoman for the home improvement company, tells The Associated Press it will not be renewing the deal. Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the Galaxy, says it's in the "final stages" of negotiations with a new naming rights partner for the sprawling complex.
The 125-acre Home Depot Center includes facilities for tennis, track and field, baseball, basketball and other sports. It's also an official training site for U.S. Olympians.
