Rams owner joins L.A. stadium venture

Published Jan. 6, 2015

INGLEWOOD, Calif. — A development group that includes a company controlled by the owner of the Rams announced plans Monday to build an 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles suburbs that could become home for an NFL team.

The proposal that could see a stadium rise on the site of a former horse track again raised the hopes of fans that Los Angeles could end its two-decade drought without a team. It becomes the latest of numerous NFL stadium plans in the Los Angeles area since the 1994 exit of the Rams and Raiders from Southern California.

The proposal stands out, however, because of the involvement of Rams owner Stan Kroenke, whose company has entered a joint venture with Stockbridge Capital Group.
