Rams owner planning NFL stadium in Los Angeles County
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) A newspaper reports the owner of the St. Louis Rams plans to build an NFL stadium in Los Angeles County, boosting the chances that pro football could return to the region.
The Los Angeles Times says (http://lat.ms/1BA13Ye ) Stan Kroenke has partnered with Stockbridge Capital Group, owners of the 238-acre Hollywood Park site in Inglewood.
Kroenke and Stockbridge say they plan to add an 80,000-seat NFL stadium and 6,000-seat performance venue to a massive development of retail, office, hotel and residential space.
The plan will add to pressure on St. Louis to either strike a deal for a new stadium or watch the team return to Southern California, where it played from 1946 to 1994.
It's the latest of numerous Los Angeles-area NFL stadium proposals over two decades.
