The Coliseum Commission is a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) between the City of Los Angeles, the County of Los Angeles, and the Sixth District Agricultural Association (referred to as the California Science Center), an institution of the State of California. The Commission Board consists of six voting members – two appointed by each of the three member entities. The Commission’s purpose is to provide for the ongoing operation and maintenance of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and the site of the former Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, now BMO Stadium.
Since 2020, the Coliseum Commission has also been supported by an affiliated public benefit corporation, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Foundation. The Foundation was established under IRS code section 501(c)(3) “to provide support to the Coliseum Commission…including financial assistance for the continued administration and operational expenses of the Coliseum Commission.”
