Venue Description

The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles & Exposition Park is the greatest stadium in the world with a history, legacy & connection like no other. The Coliseum is truly one of the most venerable sports monuments in America today with countless historic events & milestones taking place inside its walls during nine decades of celebrated history. We are very pleased to exclusively offer this incredible space to lucky couples interested in getting married at one of the most recognizable sports cathedrals in the world.

The Coliseum has served as home field for the USC Football team since 1923 and is the only stadium that has played host to two Olympiads (X and XXIII), two Super Bowls (I and VII) and a World Series (1959). It was declared a National Historic Landmark on July 27, 1984, the day before the opening ceremony of the 1984 Summer Olympics. The signature Peristyle, grand arches, Olympic rings and streamline modern architecture provide a breathtaking backdrop for any wedding ceremony or reception and boasts over 50,000 square feet. The Peristyle and Court of Honor include 15 arches and a timeless gold leaf zodiac mural in the center arch which was used as the Olympic Gateway during the 1984 Summer Olympiad. Finally the Olympic torch provides the ultimate final touch which can be lit during the ceremony representing the wedding couple’s "eternal flame of love". In addition to the Peristyle, the field, press box, USC home locker room and Olympic offices offer a unique collection of spaces for your wedding party.
