The Los Angeles Rams will son move into a new facility that has passed the $4 billion mark in costs. That’s good, as the soon to be newest Jewel in NFL stadiums will host everything from the Super Bowl to the NFL Draft.
Sticker shock being what it is, the Los Angeles Rams new stadium in Inglewood definitely shocks the senses when you read the number: $4.25 billion.
That’s “billion” with a B.
Los Angeles, Inglewood to be exact, will soon be home to what most believe will be the newest centerpiece for a league slated to open another big stadium project in Las Vegas to commence with the kick-off of the 2020 season. That project has already passed the $2 billion mark.
After all, the cost of doing business in the NFL is never on the cheap.
As for the Inglewood project, the Rams and Los Angeles Chargers will play host to NFL Media, as well as a ton of other events as the entertainment district will be a top destination for all manner of sporting and music events.
Most importantly, and certainly most logical, is that the new stadium should serve as the NFL gateway to the West. It’s the next step that should be taken by a league who has been too New York and East Coast centric. The new facility should be a host for everything from the Super Bowl, to the NFL Draft, and the NFL Combine.
When completed, the newest Crown Jewel of NFL facilities should also serve as the centerpiece for all things the National Football League wants to showcase.
I mean let’s be honest, if the cost of doing business is north of $4 billion, then Roger Goodell should be doing more of that NFL business in Los Angeles.
With the Rams on the rise, the commissioner finally has that footprint he so long had pined for. The facility will be a reflection of what could never have happened in St. Louis, and what the league desperately needed to happen in Los Angeles.
