50 Yard line tickets to the Coliseum to watch the LA Rams. Good game, not the best Stadium, ok venue to watch a game. Probably better if you go to USC football game and tailgate before hand.

An old venue but s proud one. Needs rebuilt and needs more and better concessions. Parking is poor.

The LA Coliseum is a historic landmark not far from downtown and just across the way from USC. It's home to the USC Trojans and LA Rams and swells to the size of a small town during games (70k or so).

It's definitely worth the experience to watch a football game in this stadium. On the end with the torch that was used in the Olympics, there's an area for the Trojan band. The acoustics are great and the band music fills the stadium.

To the left of the band area is the student section for the USC games; keep an eye out for them to do a card show, wave around towels, and do other rituals. Oh, and make sure you use a clear bag if it's larger than a small purse or you may not make it past security.

It was LA Rams home opening game of the season. Need to expect the crowds and hot weather, bring water. Expect long line to use restroom or buy beer.

LA Coliseum is a historic football stadium that been use in many event but mostly use as football stadium and home of USC Trojan and temporary home for the NFL Rams.

Olympic was held twice in here and has a lot of history. The stadium js outdated and despite need a major remodel.

I've been there for both soccer and USC matches. The stadium is really outdated and the access a bit hard to get. I hope it gets remodeled soon for an NFL team in LA.

The Site of two Olympics, and one time home for the Rams and Raiders, this is the stadium for USC and centerpiece of Exposition Park.

This is a great venue for all kinds of events. It is one of my favorite ones. I have been to a number of places around the country but this has locked up a lot of my memories.

However some parts of this place are beginning to fall apart. The concrete in areas is visibily chipping and needs to be repaired. The bathrooms are atrocious.

However this place has character and beauty that few other stadiums can match. The peristyle east end is iconic and a symbol of LA athletics.

Others have stated the History specifics so I wont repeat, but it is a great venue. I have sat all over this place and love the views. When sitting higher up you get a great overview, when at the very top you get a great view of the LA basin, down low you get a great view of the field.

I can't say I have been here for a sporting event but I have definitely been here for an awesome music festival called FYF Fest! I give this stadium and it's surrounding area FIVE STARS for being a great site to host these. Bountiful real bathrooms are available which is rare at festivals.

Sure the coliseum is home to many great events but one of my favorite things about this place is that you can run all around it once and that's a mile. After your run there are usually several soccer pickup games that you can join. It's free, you're getting good exercise and you get to meet fun people in the process.

You don't have to enjoy sporting events in order to appreciate the Coliseum, which opened in 1923. Although it has hosted two Olympiads (1923 and 1984) and sporting events ranging from football, baseball, boxing, tennis, ice-skating to motocross it has also featured appearances by the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd, John Kennedy, Dwight Eisenhower, Franklin Roosevelt and Charles Lindbergh. In 1967 the First Super Bowl was played here (to a less than capacity audience). The football scene in the movie Forest Gump was shot here.

Amazing to go to an event in such a historic venue. You can feel the past's ambience, and it's beautiful architecture adds to its glory.

Home field of the USC Trojans. Stadium is very old and steep but has held Olympic Games as well. Great place for watching football with a lot of history. However, outside of the stadium is not so nice..

Home of the USC Trojans & many historical events such as the Olympics & Electric Daisy Carnival. Very nice facility, huge stadium with so many seats. Watch your step in the nosebleeds as the stairs are so steep! Oddly, the stadium & this renowned university are located in a pretty rough part of LA, but you'd never know it while your enjoying yourself inside!

I've come here numerous times for USC football games. With rundown facilities and lackluster food options, the stadium needs some TLC, but at least the seats are actual seats, not benches, like at some college football stadiums. The Coliseum held two Olympic games in the past: 1932 and 1984. The Olympic rings can be found at the East end of the coliseum and the torch is used to signal the fourth quarter during USC football games.

Wear cardinal and gold when you're here...it will make the whole experience better for you. Also, keep an eye out for some bacon-wrapped hot dogs before or after a game.
