LA Times: Rams Owners Plans to Build LA NFL Stadium

(AP) – 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, according to a newspaper report.
Stan Kroenke has partnered with Stockbridge Capital Group, owners of the 238-acre Hollywood Park site in Inglewood, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday (http://lat.ms/1BA13Ye ).
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.
It is the latest of numerous Los Angeles-area NFL stadium proposals over two decades. But Kroenke’s move marks the first time an existing team owner has controlled a local site large enough for a stadium and parking, according to the Times.
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
