Events at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
Although its glory days have passed, the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum remains one of the world’s most famous sports venues. The massive stadium’s list of major events is incredible - two Olympic Games, two Super Bowls and a World Series since opening in 1922. Although its current capacity is listed as 92,516, the Coliseum used to seat more than 100,000 and often exceeded that number by quite a bit before renovations, including some because of a 1994 earthquake, changed the configuration of the stadium.

The first Summer Olympics held at the Coliseum was in 1932, when many countries couldn’t afford to send a team because of The Great Depression. The Olympics returned in 1984 and the United States dominated as the Soviet Union, East Germany and several other countries boycotted the Games.
The Coliseum hosted the first Super Bowl in 1967 with the Green Bay Packers of the NFL defeating the AFL’s Kansas City Chiefs 35-10. Interestingly, the game was not a sellout (the only time that has happened in Super Bowl history) and it wasn’t even called the “Super Bowl” then, but rather the AFL-NFL World Championship Game. The Super Bowl name didn’t appear until the third year of the game. And no complete footage of the first Super Bowl even exists, as both CBS and NBC recorded over the original tapes.
Although not known as a baseball stadium, the Coliseum was home to the Dodgers before Dodger Stadium was completed and hosted the 1959 World Series.
