Stadium for Rams, Chargers Delayed Until 2020
(AP) — The opening date for the $2.6 billion football stadium under construction in Inglewood, California, has been pushed back one year to 2020. The stadium will be shared by the NFL's Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers and was scheduled to open before the 2019 NFL season.
The Rams are likely to stay in the Coliseum for the 2019 season, while the Chargers play that year at the 30,000-seat StubHub Center in 2019.
Meanwhile, the Las Vegas Stadium Authority board has unanimously approved a conditional lease agreement for what it hopes will be the Raiders' new home in 2020. The approval comes after months of negotiations that were affected by the sudden exit of an instrumental financial backer of the $1.9 billion project.
