Rams Moving Back To Los Angeles

For the fourth time in team history, the Rams are on the move. Only this time, they’re going to a familiar place. The NFL owners approved the Rams to move from St. Louis to Los Angeles in time for the 2016 season. The Rams previously called L.A. home from 1946 through 1994. The NFL has sought a return to L.A. ever since, and the project gained additional momentum when Rams owner Stan Kroenke announced plans to build a stadium in nearby Inglewood, California. The Rams will need a temporary home before that $2 billion stadium is ready in 2019. They will most likely play at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, home to the USC Trojans football team and formerly used during the Olympics. And the Rams might not be the only team moving to the City of Angels. The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders both applied to move to Los Angeles as well. The NFL owners gave the Chargers a one year option to join the Rams in Inglewood, unless they can work out a stadium deal in San Diego. As for St. Louis, this move marks the second time the city has lost an NFL team, following the Cardinals’ departure for Arizona in 1988.
