The Nick Green South Bay Soccer Collection documents soccer events in the South Bay and Los Angeles covered by the reporter and columnist Nick Green. The bulk of the material is devoted to soccer related events held in the stadium located at CSU Dominguez Hills, formerly known as Home Depot Center, which opened in 2003 and is now called Dignity Health Sports Park. The stadium hosts soccer games by the LA Galaxy of Major League Soccer, U.S. men's and women's national soccer teams, and men's and women's college soccer. It was also home to two defunct clubs, the MLS team Chivas USA and Los Angeles Sol of the women's professional soccer. The extent of the collection consists of media guides, game programs, gameday information distributed to the media only, MLS official programs, press clippings, books, DVDs, magazines, and other related items.
Nick Green was born in England and graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle. He is a former Daily Breeze newspaper reporter, columnist, and blogger based in the South Bay of Southern California. Green spent over two decades with the Daily Breeze newspaper covering soccer in Torrance, Lomita, Carson, and the Palos Verdes Peninsula as the South Bay evolved into the hub of American soccer. The CSU Dominguez Hills multi-use sports complex, Dignity Health Sports Park, hosted two Major League Soccer franchises (LA Galaxy and Chivas USA) and the National Training Center, used by the U.S. men's and women's national teams.
