The Clippers Are All In For Inglewood

Steve Ballmer’s $100 Million Donation To The City Of InglewoodDespite the legal and environmental challenges that continue to persist, the Los Angeles Clippers remain full steam ahead in their efforts to privately construct a brand new 18,000-seat arena in the LA County city of Inglewood, California.

Located on the same block as the soon-to-be completed Rams and Chargers stadium (and surrounding development), along with the remodeled Forum, the new Clippers pad is slated to include a team practice facility, basketball and business operational headquarters, a sports medicine clinic, as well as an outdoor public plaza.

Tuesday, LAC’s commitment to the city moved even further along when it was announced that Steve Ballmer intends to contribute $100 million to Inglewood housing, educational and youth initiatives, in addition to the $1 billion the former Microsoft bigwig plans to spend on the construction of his team’s future home.

If all goes as planned, the Clippers new palace will open for business in 2024, once the club’s Staples Center lease officially concludes.
