TORRANCE, Calif. (Monday, Jan. 3, 2022) - Today, the LA Galaxy and City of Torrance announced a new partnership to keep the Torrance Multi-Use Sports Complex open to the community. Under the new City lease, the State of California-owned 6.2-acre complex will be renamed LA Galaxy Sports Complex and will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony in April.
"Keeping the Sports Complex open was very important to the LA Galaxy," said LA Galaxy President Chris Klein. "The LA Galaxy is committed to the advancement of the sport of soccer at the youth level, and these fields have been home to a significant soccer community in Southern California. We look forward to continuing to build the sport of soccer as part of this new partnership with the City of Torrance for years to come."
"Youth services and support in Torrance have long been a priority of the community. As stewards of the City, it's our collective responsibility as Mayor and City Council to promote the physical fitness and wellness of our youth, and we are appreciative of the partnership with LA Galaxy and the Judicial Council of California for working with us to keep this popular field open," said Torrance Mayor Patric J. Furey.
Located across the street from Kinecta Soccer Center, powered by LA Galaxy, the state-of-the-art, 6.2-acre facility features high-quality synthetic turf and energy-efficient sports lighting for year-round soccer, football, lacrosse, rugby and other sport playability. The complex is centrally located at 555 Maple Avenue, near the Torrance Civic Center.
The Judicial Council of California following significant negotiations and broad community support agreed to renew the lease with the City under new terms which began Jan. 1 and will run until dec. 2028. Under the new agreement, the City will make significant capital improvements including new synthetic turf while the LA Galaxy will cover the monthly agreement allowing the fields to continue to be open and accessible to the overall community.
In additional to hosting youth organizations, new LA Galaxy Sports Complex programming will feature Galaxy Juniors & Skills classes, soccer camps and clinics and an adult soccer league, among other programming. LA Galaxy II tryouts will also be held at the complex Jan. 13-14 and Jan. 27-28. LA Galaxy II tryout information is available here.
The LA Galaxy Sports Complex receives an average of 56,000 visitors annually and currently hosts 28 youth organizations including Beach Futbol Club, Southern California South Bay Soccer, Fram Soccer Club, and American Youth Soccer Organization regions 14 and 16.
