Crypto.com Arena Earns WELL Health-Safety Rating

The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) has awarded its WELL Health-Safety Rating to Crypto.com Arena, home of the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers, the NHL’s LA Kings, and the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks.

“As an organization dedicated to delivering the most memorable sports and live entertainment experiences, Crypto.com Arena has been at the forefront of adopting stringent cleaning and safety protocols and was the first NBA, NHL, and WNBA Arena to receive the GBAC Star Facility Accreditation in June of 2020,” said Lee Zeidman, president of Crypto.com Arena.

“This [WELL] recognition is further evidence of our commitment to ensuring that Crypto.com Arena strives to not only be one of the safest arenas possible, but also promotes an environment that supports the health and well-being of our employees, tenant teams, artists, promoters, guests, and partners.”

To achieve the WELL Health-Safety Rating, AEG, owner and operator of Crypto.com Arena, met rigorous requirements related to its operational policies, maintenance protocols, and emergency plans. The WELL Health-Safety Rating includes more than 20 features designed to help organizations keep spaces clean and sanitized; provide essential health benefits and services; communicate health and safety efforts; ensure they have adequate emergency preparations and programs; and assess the facility’s air and water quality.

“Sports and entertainment venues like Crypto.com Arena anchor communities large and small, giving us places to cheer on our hometown teams or see our favorite performers,” said Rachel Hodgdon, president and CEO of IWBI. “By achieving the WELL Health-Safety Rating, AEG made sure it’s also a place that enhances our health and well-being. Thanks, AEG, and congratulations!”
