The Los Angeles Kings ice hockey team plays its home games at Crypto.com Arena (formerly called the STAPLES Center) in downtown Los Angeles, California.
Since the team’s founding in 1967, the LA Kings played for 32 years at the Great Western Forum in the LA suburb of Inglewood, before moving to their current home at the start of the 1999–2000 season. The Kings played their first regular season home game at the new arena, then called the STAPLES Center, against the Boston Bruins on October 20th, 1999, which ended in a 2-2 tie after overtime.
The LA Kings share Crypto.com Arena with the Los Angeles Lakers NBA basketball team, the Los Angeles Sparks Women’s NBA basketball team. The LA Clippers NBA basketball team will continue to use the Crypto.com Arena until their new home arena, the Intuit Dome in Inglewood, is ready in 2024.
