Analysis

諦めた is the ta-form of 諦める meaning “give up”. Ta-form of a verb followed by ら means “if”, “when”, or “after” depending on the context. So, 諦めたら means “when you give up”.

そこで means “at that point” in time. It’s used in response to the statement mentioned before or the situation that happened before. 

試合 means “a game” or “a match”.

終了 means “an end”. It’s the same meaning as 終わり but 終了 is more technical and official than 終わり and 試合終了 is often used as a word meaning “the end of the match”.

だよ is combined with だ attached to a noun or na-adjective and the sentence ending particle よ used to make the listener aware of the information.

Quote

When you give up, that’s when the game is over.

たら (if, when or after)

If we get a dog, let’s build a dog house in the garden.
When you grow up, you will understand.
After you graduate from university, what are you going to do?

Note

You can add もし in the beginning of the sentence to make it specifically mean “if”.

If I won the lottery, I would buy a house.

そこで (“at that point” in time)

After studying for another 20 minutes, let’s take a short break then.
Because it started to rain, the game was called off there.
Hey, is that where you laugh?
