The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, located in Exposition Park adjacent to the University of Southern California campus, is currently undergoing renovations meant to protect its landmark status and greatly improve the fan experience.

A joint venture of Hathaway Dinwiddie and AECOM will manage the project. Renovations on the 93,607-seat Coliseum will include the restoration of the Coliseum peristyle; all new seats with increased legroom; new box suites and lounges; a new press box; upgraded concourses; new concession stands, state-of-the-art audio, video, and WiFi technology; and the replacement of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems to meet current standards.

In addition to the renovations and beginning in August 2019, the Coliseum will be officially renamed the United Airlines Memorial Coliseum. The partnership with the airline was critical to funding the $270 million renovation project.

Originally opening in 1923, the stadium’s tenants have included the UCLA Bruins, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Summer Olympics, which it has hosted twice in 1932 and 1984.

The renovations, which are being designed by DLR Group, are scheduled for completion in time for the 2019 USC Trojans football season.
