Orange County Soccer Stadium

This world-class soccer stadium in Orange County Great Park hosts Orange County’s lone United Soccer League professional soccer team. The warm evenings in Irvine, California make this cutting-edge stadium a fan favorite among both players and fans.

The first phase of the Sports Complex, which is destined to become Orange County’s preeminent recreation destination, includes the ALL-NEW Championship Soccer Stadium. There is a box office at the main entrance, a concession area, an interactive Fan Zone, a viewing deck on the Club Level Party Loft, and enough seating for up to 5,000 spectators.

After starting out playing at a number of different venues across Orange County, the stadium is now Orange County SC’s permanent home in the USL Championship league, the second tier of American soccer. This year marks the stadium’s debut as a shared facility, as the newly formed California United Strikers FC of the third-tier National Independent Soccer Association also made it their home. 

The City of Irvine owns Championship Soccer Stadium, and the Great Park manages it for the public. The stadium has a box office, a merchandise store, refreshment stands, and a fan experience zone. It has been said that the center has contributed to and sped up the growth of the youngsters of Orange County, South Carolina.

Formerly known as the Orange County Blues, this team won the Western Conference Regular Season Title in 2015 and advanced to the USL Playoffs Semifinals in back-to-back seasons.

In 2017, James Keston, Chief Investment Officer of LARO Properties and new team owner, bought the team and renamed it. Keston is heavily involved in managing the team’s day-to-day operations and is committed to creating a professional soccer pipeline and a top-tier soccer organization that serves the needs of Orange County’s soccer fans, players, and youth clubs.

The 2018 campaign was the best ever for the club. The team broke records for victories, points, and attendance and finished as the top seed in the West to play in the conference finals.
