24/7 Wall Street: Most Valuable Stadiums in America

2 of 15

13. Staples Center

Teams: LA Clippers, LA Kings, LA Lakers
Naming rights cost: $116 million
Deal term: 20 years
Starting date: 1999

The Staples Center, built in 1999, is one of the few arenas in the country to house three separate major sports teams under one roof. The NBA’s Lakers and Clippers, and the NHL’s Kings play there, but because of the basketball players dispute, the NHL team had the top billing to itself. In December, however, when the shortened basketball season will begin, the NBA teams finally will join the Kings. In the past 10 years, attendance for all three teams has increased. The stadium also houses an WNBA team, the Los Angeles Sparks. With more than 2,500 sports and entertainment events in its first 10 years of operations, the stadium had more than 38 million visitors. In 2009, Staples extended the rights deal indefinitely. The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.
