Los Angeles – Rose Bowl (Pasadena, CA)
The iconic Rose Bowl is emblematic of American football, being the venue for the sport's oldest annual college New Year's Day game, and also serving five times as the site of the NFL's Super Bowl championship. It also has a history as an international soccer destination. Starting in 1968 as the home of the Los Angeles Wolves in the old North American Soccer League, the Rose Bowl also has been the site of the 1984 Olympic final, the 1994 World Cup final, the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup final, the 2002 CONCACAF Gold Cup final as well as home to the Los Angeles Aztecs in the NASL and Major League Soccer’s LA Galaxy from 1996-2003. It is the only stadium in the world to have hosted both a men's and women's World Cup final and an Olympic gold medal match. Additionally, the Rose Bowl hosted the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup final between Mexico and United States that attracted a sell-out crowd of 93,420, the opening gameday for the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup and the historic sold-out 2015 CONCACAF Cup.
