The Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers will have to wait an additional season before moving into their new Inglewood facility.
The Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers will have to wait an additional season before moving into their new digs in Inglewood, CA. Rams fans will endure an additional season in the cavernous Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, while Chargers fans will continue in the StubHub Center.
Yes, the StubHub Center.
The Inglewood facility has been delayed by of all things, rain.
For those who don’t know the Albert Hammond classic, “It Never Rains In Southern California”, you’ll be disappointed to know that precipitation has delayed a significant date in the Rams return to southern California.
Like, by a year.
Also, the Rams might possibly lose one season of new uniforms.
According to Alden Gonzales at ESPN:
"“The Rams were planning to roll out a redesign of their new uniforms for 2019, in line with the opening of their new stadium. They may now push it back to 2020, but remain in talks with Nike and are still open about keeping it for 2019.”"
It’s also rumored that the Rams could lose an estimated $80 million by the one year delay. Additionally, the league was looking for Rams owner Stan Kroenke to host a Super Bowl in 2021.

The “LA Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park” is a big deal, not just in Los Angeles but for the National Football League. With an estimated 70,000 seats and a 6,000 seat entertainment venue that is adjacent to the stadium, it becomes what is not unlike what Cowboys owner Jerry Jones enjoys in Arlington: a multi purpose stadium that hosts everything from concerts to college bowl games, AND Super Bowls.
The former Hollywood Park racetrack venue is a huge project for the Rams and the league. One lost season will have a considerable ripple effect for LA and the NFL.
2020 can’t get her soon enough.
