Titan Stadium is a 10,000 seat multi-purpose stadium on the campus of California State University, Fullerton in Fullerton, California.

History[edit]

Scheduled to open in time for the 1991 football season, delays caused the opening date of Titan Stadium to be pushed back until 1992.[1] Despite originally being planned as the home stadium for the CSUF Titans football program, the delays in stadium construction put in question the possibility of the team actually taking the field.[2] Budget cuts and strict NCAA regulations eventually signaled the end of the football program in 1992, making Titan Stadium one of the most lavish soccer stadiums in Southern California.

Amenities[edit]

Titan Stadium has 2,000 chairback seats and 2,500 bleachers seats with backrests on the western side of the stadium. In addition, there are concrete steps on the opposite side which can hold nearly 5,000 extra people. The pitch features an underground drainage system that allows it to be almost perfectly flat. The main press box seats over 50 people and features 10 separate booths used for broadcasting, hospitality, etc.

Tenants[edit]

CSUF Titans[edit]

The stadium is home to the CSUF Titans men's soccer and CSUF Titans women's soccer teams. It was formerly host to the CSUF Titans football team before it disbanded in 1992.

Other teams and events[edit]

Titan Stadium was one of the hosts to Los Angeles Salsa, a former professional soccer team in the now defunct American Professional Soccer League between 1993 and 1994. The Los Angeles Galaxy used the field as their home ground during their run to the 2001 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. In addition to professional soccer, NCAA Tournament games were also hosted in 1994, 1996, 1998, and 2005. The United States men's national soccer team has used Titan Stadium to host international soccer matches as well.

In addition to being a soccer stadium, Titan Stadium has been featured in television programs and commercials due to its proximity to Los Angeles. The UCLA Bruins have previously used the stadium as a practice field for their football program, once again bringing the sport to the CSUF Titans campus.

The Los Angeles Blues soccer team of USL Pro also play their home games at Titan Stadium.
