The Cal State Los Angeles Golden Eagles (also Cal State LA Golden Eagles, CSULA Golden Eagles, and California State-Los Angeles Golden Eagles) are the athletic teams that represent California State University, Los Angeles, located in Los Angeles, California, in NCAA Division II intercollegiate sports. The Golden Eagles compete as members of the California Collegiate Athletic Association for all 10 varsity sports. CSULA previously competed in Division I and was a founding member of the Pacific Coast Athletic Association in 1969. It left the conference in 1974.

Cal State L.A.'s more than 11 acres (4.5 ha) of athletic facilities is named the Billie Jean King Sports Complex. The sports complex—designation which was approved by the CSU Board of Trustees Sept. 21—features the Eagles Nest Gymnasium, the University Stadium, Jesse Owens Track and Field, Reeder Field (baseball), the swimming pool, and tennis and basketball courts.[1]

History

The Eagles Nest is home to the Cal State L.A. basketball and volleyball teams. The arena seats just over 3,200 fans at full capacity. In 1984, the Eagles Nest hosted the Summer Olympics judo competition. In July 1984 the Olympic Mural, “Olympic Fantasy,” a mosaic tile work by muralist Guillermo "Bill" Granizo, was installed on west side of the arena in remembrance of the event.[2][3][4]
