National Car Rental signs $158 million deal for potential new Rams stadium
Wednesday October 7th, 2015

National Car Rental has agreed to a 20-year, $158 million deal to sponsor a potential Rams stadium in St. Louis if the team remains in the city, reports SportsBusiness Daily.

NFL owners will meet tomorrow to discuss the Rams and a potential move to Los Angeles. Rams owner Stan Kroenke wants to move the team to Inglewood, Calif., but St. Louis is trying to keep the team in Missouri.

The deal with National Car Rental was made by the St. Louis stadium task force, and the formal agreement was drafted with the St. Louis Regional Sports Authority, who would own a new Rams stadium. Kroenke and the Rams were not involved in the deal.

The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders have also been involved in relocation talks, with a plan to house both teams in the same stadium in Carson. The NFL is expected to decide on relocation to Los Angeles by early 2016 at the latest. - Rohan Nadkarni
