Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum USC Football Coliseum Aerial Drone Footage South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, California, United States/The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum opened June of 1923; some 5 months later, on October 6th, the first football game was played in the stadium, with the University of Southern California defeating Pomona College 23-7 before a crowd of 12,836. It was a modest beginning for a venue that would later play a very prominent role in college and professional football, and become the greatest stadium in the history of America.In addition to serving as the home field for the USC Trojans since 1923, countless historic events have taken place inside these venerable walls during nine decades of celebrated history. It is the only facility in the world to play host to two Olympiads (X and XXIII), two Super Bowls (I and VII), one World Series (1959), a Papal Mass and visits by three U.S. Presidents: John F. Kennedy, Richard M. Nixon and Ronald Reagan.The Court of Honor, located at the Peristyle end of the Coliseum and comprised of 54 commemorative plaques at present, got a thorough refurbishment as well. Chronicling outstanding persons or events, athletic or otherwise, that have had a definite impact upon the history, glory and growth of the Coliseum, the plaques were restored to their former glory. www.lacoliseum.com DJI Phantom Copter Drone Footage of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Music Credit: Blood Diamonds- Ritual
