CARSON, Calif. (AP) The home of the Los Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA could have a new name by the end of the year.

The $70 million, 10-year naming rights agreement for the Home Depot Center expires in May, and Jean Niemi, a spokeswoman for the home improvement company, tells The Associated Press it will not be renewing the deal. Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the Galaxy, says it's in the ``final stages'' of negotiations with a new naming rights partner for the sprawling complex.

The 125-acre Home Depot Center includes facilities for tennis, track and field, baseball, basketball and other sports. It's also an official training site for U.S. Olympians.
