STAPLES Center and AEG unveiled the brand new 7,00 square foot TEAM LA store at STAPLES Center. The new store features more space, more Lakers, Clippers, Kings and Sparks gear and less waiting in line.

Additions to the store include a brand new in-store jersey customization station for Kings, Lakers and Clippers jerseys.
“We are incredibly excited to open the brand new TEAM LA Store for all of the southern California sports fans, tourists and anyone that stops by STAPLES Center year round,” Lee Zeidman, President, STAPLES Center. “The new store is twice the size of the old location and provides fans with more space, more merchandise and we are able to get fans in and out quickly.”
