Home Depot Center to potentially be renamed

Carson, Calif. -- A Friday report by the Associated Press said that the home of Los Angeles’ professional soccer team will likely be getting a new name.

The Home Depot Center, which also includes facilities for tennis, track and field, baseball, basketball and other sports, as well as serves as an official training site for U.S. Olympians, is nearing the end of the $70 million, 10-year naming rights period, and Home Depot spokeswoman Jean Niemi told AP that the retailer does not plan to renew the deal.

Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team, said it is in the "final stages" of negotiations with a new naming rights partner for the sprawling complex, said AP.
