LA Stadium is projected to be ready for the Rams' 2020 season after delays stalled initial development.
The Rams relocated back to Los Angeles from St. Louis in 2016, when owner Stan Kroenke received approval from 30 of 32 NFL owners for his ambitious plan to move his team to California, where a new multi-billion dollar stadium would be built for the franchise.
While the Rams have played in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum since returning to the City of Angels in 2016, the franchise will finally relocate to the new Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, which is currently under construction as part of a new entertainment district, once it is finished in the summer of 2020.
The Inglewood, Calif., facility was originally supposed to be ready in time for the 2019 season, but construction was delayed by an unusually rainy winter after breaking ground.
Initial cost projections for the NFL stadium were set around $2.6 billion, but the estimated price tag of the entire stadium project is now close to $5 billion, which covers construction of the stadium, nearby parking, a 6,000-seat performance theatre, infrastructure and other aspects of the larger 298-acre retail, office and entertainment district the stadium will anchor..
The San Diego Chargers joined the Rams in Los Angeles and will share the new facility come 2020.
