The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is an outdoor sports stadium located at Exposition Park in Los Angeles, and home to the Trojans football team from the University of Southern California. The Coliseum has a listed seating capacity of 93,607, making it the largest football stadium in the Pac-12 conference. The Coliseum hosted the Summer Olympics in 1932 and 1984. The day before the latter event, it was declared a National Historic Landmark.
The Coliseum was destroyed by an atomic bomb during the Russian-American War of 1967. It was never rebuilt, as the local civilization was set back to a medieval level. Nevertheless, the hyperbole of describing a large object as "the size of the Coliseum" remained in popular usage in The Valley in the late 21st century.
