Football stadium proposals in the Los Angeles area
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A snapshot of stadium proposals in the Los Angeles area that could become home for an NFL team.
—Farmers Field. The city of Los Angeles has been hoping to lure an NFL team to a proposed downtown stadium. Its aspirations are hitched to Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings and the downtown Staples Center, home of the NBA’s Lakers and Clippers. Under its deal with City Hall, the company, led by billionaire Philip Anschutz, has until April to sign a football team.
—City of Champions Revitalization Project. An 80,000-seat venue proposed in Inglewood, in the Los Angeles suburbs. A joint venture that includes a company controlled by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke would build the field as part of a sprawling redevelopment project on the site of a former horse track, Hollywood Park.
—City of Industry. Developers have proposed building a 75,000-seat stadium on a hilly strip of land in this city, which is devoted almost exclusively to warehouses, manufacturing, food makers and other light industry east of Los Angeles.
