The LA Rams are on track to play at the new $5 billion Sofi Stadium in 2020

The LA Rams are moving on up in 2020. Well, let’s debate the success of the team in 2020 later. For now, the team is set to move to the new $5 billion Sofi Stadium located in Ingelwood, California. Anchoring the successful return of NFL football to Los Angeles, California, the design of Sofi Stadium complex is like no other NFL stadium in the US.

Despite the 2019 setback of missing the playoffs, the LA Rams continue to field one of the most competitive teams of the NFL heading into the 2020 season.  Now the team will boast playing at one of the most impressive stadium complexes as well.

By now you likely have plenty of details about the site.  Since breaking ground in 2016, the amount of media coverage on the project has been phenomenal.  There is an incredible Business Insiders online article featuring a lot of great written and visual information about the complex.  There is a website set up exclusively for Sofi Stadium as well. But my favorite feature of the project is the incredibly ambitious expectations set with its construction.

Sofi Stadium is not just a sports stadium.  The complex covers 298 acres and will feature an entertainment “district”, a sports “district”, as well as host a hotel and house lots of retail shopping and restaurant dining.  This will host both indoor and outdoor sporting events, and is the marquis feature for the 2028 International Olympics.

This is the brainchild and is being developed developed by Los Angeles Rams Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenke.  While the facilities will be the home of both the Los Angeles Chargers and Los Angeles Rams, the Rams have greater expectations to fill the seats upon the start of the 2020 NFL season.

Sofi could be the perfect cure for the LA Rams in 2020.

The raw excitement and positive energy from the wonderment of the new facility and all of the attention to detail will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for fans.  And all of that energy will translate onto the field too. It’s all set to open this year, in the summer of 2020.  Sofi is also scheduled to host Super Bowl LVI in 2022 and the College Football national championship game in 2023.
