    Reports: Clippers to host 2026 NBA All-Star Weekend at Intuit Dome
    • January 13, 2024

    The Clippers are finalizing an agreement with the NBA to host the 2026 All-Star Weekend at the new Intuit Dome in Inglewood. The Athletic was the first to report the plans.

    Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, who privately financed the $1.8 billion arena located near SoFi Stadium, will meet with reporters on Tuesday. He is expected to be accompanied by NBA commissioner Adam Silver, who will announce the site of the 2026 game.

    The 17,700-seat Intuit Dome is scheduled to open in August, ahead of the 2024-25 season.

    Los Angeles last hosted NBA All-Star Weekend in 2018 at Arena, which was then known as Staples Center. L.A. has hosted the midseason event six times (1963, 1972, 1983, 2004, 2011, 2018), more than any city in the league.
