St. Louis submits NFL stadium proposal to keep Rams
Tuesday December 29th, 2015

The city of St. Louis have submitted a stadium proposal to the NFL to keep the Rams in their city, reports Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times.

The NFL asked for St. Louis, Oakland and San Diego to submit stadium proposals before a Dec. 30 deadline if the cities wished to keep their respective teams from moving to Los Angeles.

Oakland failed to meet the deadline but will update the NFL on the city’s effort to keep the Raiders.

Last week, the St. Louis Board of Aldermen approved some public financing for the $1.11 billion stadium plan. The plan to keep the Rams in St. Louis calls for a city funded backing of $150 million for the $1.1 billion project. The rest of the money would be provided by the state, the NFL and the team owner.

A decision by the owners on the Los Angeles move is expected when they meet on Jan. 12 in Houston to consider proposals
