The Los Angeles Football Club, the MLS expansion team set to begin play in 2018, has hired Legends to provide multiple services for developing the most expensive stadium project in the league’s 20-year history.

The $250 million, privately funded complex covers a 22,000-seat facility and more than 100,000 square feet of restaurants, office space, a conference center and an international soccer museum. Pending city approvals over the next several months, the star-studded ownership team — which includes Magic Johnson, Nomar and Mia Hamm Garciaparra, Golden State Warriors co-owner Peter Guber and motivational speaker Tony Robbins — plans to build the stadium on the site of the Los Angeles Sports Arena. The targeted opening is 2018, the team’s first MLS season.
