International Soccer Kicks Rose Bowl’s ‘Party of the Century’ Out of Stadium, Forcing It to Reschedule

The Rose Bowl Stadium, in coordination with the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation, will be rescheduling the Rose Bowl Party of the Century presented by Western Asset, its 100th birthday celebration, to Saturday, August 13, 2022 after the addition of a new event to its Centennial event calendar.

The newly announced international soccer event will take place on July 30, which had been the original date for the party.

The soccer match will be one of the biggest international matches on United States soil this year and will be the first non-football related major event at the Rose Bowl Stadium since prior to the pandemic.

The Rose Bowl Party of the Century event is expected to be a sellout, featuring a red carpet, live entertainment, fireworks, a flyover and celebrity appearances while celebrating the generational moments of America’s Stadium – all under the lights on the venue’s iconic turf. For those that purchased a ticket for the previous July 30th event, a Legacy Foundation staff member will be contacting you shortly about your commitment to the new date of Saturday, August 13th.

“The Rose Bowl Stadium’s life and history has been built on iconic moments that have captivated fans and audiences from around the world and international soccer has always been an important component of our DNA,” said Chief Development Officer Dedan Brozino. “It is important that we continue to embrace these special opportunities to unite the Rose Bowl Stadium’s brand and its fans with the game that is so special to our past, present and future. We look forward to celebrating the Stadium’s centennial birthday on the new date of August 13, but also welcoming fans and viewers from around the world for this important addition to our major event calendar.”

The “Rose Bowl Party of the Century presented by Western Asset” will be the first fundraising event of its kind for the iconic America’s Stadium. It will be hosted on the signature Rose Bowl Stadium field to celebrate the life and moments of the venue’s global history, while generating support to protect, preserve and enhance its future as a National Historic Landmark. The event originally had to be postponed from April 2020 following the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and is now being rescheduled due to a major event happening on that date.

“Over the past almost-100 years, the Rose Bowl Stadium has touched not only our lives locally but those of millions of fans across the globe,” event co-chairs Angel Throop and Angie Miller said in a statement. “This historic venue has fulfilled dreams and created generational memories that will last a lifetime. We are excited, humbled and honored to be involved in the start of the Centennial Celebration of this historic venue, and to throw a birthday party deserving of its 100-year history, which has been and will continue to be a big part of our lives.”
