Why the Home Depot Center?
The CrossFit Games move to a world-class sporting facility!
In less than two months, the world’s fittest athletes will descend upon the city of Carson California to compete in the 2010 CrossFit games. There are certain aspects of this brutal weekend competition that everyone anticipates. The past three years of the Games have produced gut-wrenching tests of fortitude and amazing feats of strength and endurance. The athletes and spectators traveling the world over to be a part of the Games know they can expect a weekend of heart-stopping performances.
This year, however, will be the first departure from "The Ranch." The rough, rural property in the city of Aromas that has been the site of the Games for the last three years. Amidst zoning issues and logistical concerns for a rapidly growing audience, the CrossFit games have been thrust from a back-yard fitness throw-down to a major sporting event.
The Home Depot Center in Carson is a state of the art 125-acre sports complex. The 150 million dollar development is equipped with four separate sports stadiums, and serves as home to the US Soccer Federation, two Major league soccer teams, and the US Tennis Association. Officially designated as an “US Olympic Training Site,” the HDC will host the CrossFit Games in both a world-class outdoor Tennis Stadium and an Olympic sized Track Stadium, each equipped with about 8,000 seats.
Before the CrossFit Games, the HDC hosted the X Games, the FIFA Women’s world cup, and epic tennis matches between the greatest in the sport.
This year, there will be no poison oak, dusty air, or the giant hill that gave the Ranch in Aromas its rugged reputation. Instead, the stadium will offer spectators a 360 degree view of the competition, along with 19 VIP suites. There will be three giant screens in two stadiums plus closed-circuit TVs showing the competition in the giant tent city. Food, concessions, drinks throughout. Parties Friday and Saturday nights.
Competitors, on the other hand, will have a host of air-conditioned facilities, including locker rooms, showers, ice baths and massage therapy. Even with these lush amenities, it takes only a little imagination to see the Stadium for what it really is: A Colosseum-like battleground, ready and waiting for the gladiators to arrive.
