St. Louis owner ready to show NFL new L.A. stadium plans

Sunday March 22nd, 2015

St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke will bring renderings of a proposed stadium in Inglewood, Calif., to the NFL owners' meetings this week, according to the Los Angeles Times

The stadium, if approved, would serve a new Los Angeles NFL franchise. Kroenke will bring to the owners, "finished schematic plans for the world's most interactive and integrated football stadium, a futuristic, $1.86-billion, privately financed venue proposed for the Hollywood Park site in Inglewood," the report said. 

The owners will decide if or when the city gets a team. A team that moves would likely requires a three-fourths vote of the league's owners, and such a vote would not take place before the Fall, the Times reported. 

• Los Angeles mayor: downtown NFL stadium 'not dead'

While entertainment corporation AEG announced earlier this month that it was no longer in discussion with the NFL regarding Los Angeles stadium development, L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti on Thursday said the stadium development is not dead. 

In an alternative deal, the Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers last month proposed a $1.7 billion Los Angeles stadium plan that would bring about a facility both franchises could share. 

The Times reported then that that venue would be in Carson, Calif., and be privately financed.
