Whilst the City of Angels is best known for its glitz and glamour, it’s also a sporting mecca.

With a team in every major league, Los Angeles is bursting at the seams with more live action than you could possibly imagine.

Grab tickets to a basketball game at the Staples Center and see the likes of Lonzo Ball, Julius Randle and Blake Griffin tear up the court (be sure to keep an eye out for the Kiss Cam!), take a stadium tour at the StubHub Center, grab a hotdog and watch the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium, or delve deep into the world of college football and catch a game at UCLA.
