Los Angeles Football Club participated in a community event on Friday, as they were formally welcomed to the Exposition Park community alongside the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art.
As part of the event, media and dignitaries were taken on a tour of LAFC’s venue, Banc of California Stadium, which is estimated to be 60 percent complete.

As of now, the stadium is apparently on track to open in the spring, in time for LAFC’s inaugural season in MLS.
All in all, it sounds like good news, and while “spring” could be any range of dates, it sounds like LAFC may get to open the stadium as close to the start of the season as possible, which is terrific news. In contrast, D.C. United are also in the midst of their stadium construction, but won’t be able to open Audi Field until next summer.
To be honest, there’s still about 40 percent to go, but it sounds like things are moving as smoothly as can be expected for the project, and that is great news indeed.
