On November 17th 2016 Rams’ owner Stan Kroenke and National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell along with Inglewood Mayor James Butts, Jack Youngblood and Eric Dickerson (the latter two, Hall-of-Famers) took part in the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the $2.6 billion L.A. Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park.
The first part of the project (the 70,000-seat open-air stadium) is scheduled to open in August 2019. In 2021 the new Rams stadium will host the Super Bowl. The completed project will feature impressive landscaping including lakes, public parks and recreation areas as well as entertainment venues, retail spaces and more!
In the words of NFL commissioner Goodell, L.A. Rams new stadium in Inglewood will be a place “not just for football but for entertainment, for events, for eating, for living, for working.”
Just like the Forum that helps to revitalize Inglewood since its reopening 2014, the new Rams stadium is expected to have positive impact on the area and its economy.
L.A. Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park according to Kroenke and his partners will become a “global entertainment destination”.
