LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles 2024 has added the Honda Center in Anaheim; Long Beach’s Arena, Convention Center, Waterfront and Pier; and the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles as part of its new Games Plan. These existing world-class sports venues were added following months of consultations with the international sports federations and local communities as part of LA’s fiscally responsible and innovative bid to bring the Olympic and Paralympic Games back to the United States for the first time in 28 years.
The Honda Center in Anaheim will host Volleyball, bringing the sport to a professional sports arena that seats more than 18,000 fans and is the home of the NHL Ducks franchise. In Orange County, the sport will be played 10 minutes from Disneyland and in a Volleyball hotbed, drawing the highest possible interest from spectators and creating the greatest legacy for the community. The arena is quickly accessible to Southern California’s residents and visitors, conveniently located next to the Anaheim rail station with regional trains connecting Downtown Los Angeles in 40 minutes. Driving time from UCLA’s Olympic and Paralympic Villages takes 55 minutes.
