In Game

Similar to being an incredible basketball venue, Staples Center is also a fantastic place to see a hockey game.

The area around Staples Center is great and is home to plenty to do before and after games. Before even entering Staples Center you’ll be able to enjoy one of the best neighborhoods near any arena. LA Live is located right next door, which offers endless choices of pre and post game entertainment. The Grammy Museum and ESPN Los Angeles studio are also nearby meaning you’ll without a doubt bet able to find something to do before the game.

Inside the arena, you’ll experience a lively atmosphere that can match just about any in the league. You’ll be greeted with the “Go Kings Go” chants, and after every Los Angeles goal, the entire arena erupts in elation. Don’t let the fact that Southern California is a rather relaxed fool you these fans live and die with their team.

No matter where you’re sitting you’ll have an excellent view of the game even in the nosebleeds. The cheap seats also allow you to experience all the action alongside some of the most diehard Kings fans out there.

Kings tickets can be a bit pricey, although you’ll get your entertainment dollars worth when attending a Kings game at Staples Center.

Fight Songs

  1. I Love LA

    Kings goal song

    Hate New York City
    It’s cold and it’s damp
    And all the people dressed like monkeys
    Let’s leave Chicago to the Eskimos
    That town’s a little too rugged
    For you and me, you bad girl

    Rollin’ down the Imperial Highway
    With a big nasty redhead at my side
    Santa Ana winds blowin’ hot from the north
    And we was born to ride

    Roll down the window, put down the top
    Crank up the Beach Boys, baby
    Don’t let the music stop
    We’re gonna ride it till we just can’t ride it no more

    From the South Bay to the Valley
    From the West Side to the East Side
    Everybody’s very happy
    ‘Cause the sun is shining all the time
    Looks like another perfect day

    I love L.A. (We love it)
    I love L.A. (We love it)

    Look at that mountain
    Look at those trees
    Look at that bum over there, man
    He’s down on his knees
    Look at these women
    There ain’t nothin’ like em nowhere

    Century Boulevard (We love it)
    Victory Boulevard (We love it)
    Santa Monica Boulevard (We love it)
    Sixth Street (We love it, we love it)
    We love L.A.

    I love L.A. (We love it)
    I love L.A. (We love it)
    I love L.A. (We love it)
