About the event

ABOUT THE COLISEUM: Home to the USC football team since 1923, and a designated National Historic Landmark, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has the most diverse and all encompassing history of any stadium in the world. It has hosted two Super Bowls (I and VII), a World Series (1959), two Summer Olympics (Xth Olympiad in 1932 and XXIIIrd Olympiad in 1984) and soon a third: XXXIVth Olympiad in 2028.

Along with the adjacent Sports Arena, which closed its doors in 2016, the Coliseum is credited with helping to start the migration of professional sports teams to the West Coast. The complex provided a home for the Rams (1946-79, returning again in 2016), the Dodgers (1958-61), and the Lakers (1960-67), and has also been home to a variety of Southern California teams, including: the Raiders (1982-94), UCLA Football (1933-81), and the Clippers (1984-99).

The Coliseum has also welcomed legendary events, such as entertainer Evel Knievel (1973), a Papal Mass by Pope John Paul II (1987), Nelson Mandela’s “Crusade against Apartheid” (1990), and visits from several U.S. Presidents (FDR, JFK, and Reagan, to name a few).

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Marina Foté is the Assistant to the General Manager of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. She plays a part in every facet of the business, including administration, Public Relations, contract management, event management and operations, marketing, employee experience, and more! Prior to her time at the Coliseum, Marina worked with the Kansas City Royals and MLB's Office of the Commissioner, and currently also works part-time for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Marina is also currently working toward her M.S. degree in Public Relations Innovation, Strategy & Management at the University of Southern California.
