Los Angeles Stadium
According to the Los Angeles Times, the new Inglewood stadium being built for the Rams and Chargers will be delayed by a year and is now scheduled to be ready in time for the start of the 2020 season. The
The original scheduled called for the stadium to be ready for the 2019 season, but developers explained that a record rainfall has delayed the process from their ned.
“The continuing rains really knocked us for a loop,” Bob Aylesworth tells the L.A. Times. “It was a very unforgiving two months for the project. And speaking from a building perspective, it really couldn’t have come at a worse time.”
Rams COO Kevin Demoff explained that felt it was best to make this decision now, as opposed to waiting another year or so.
“There’s chance you could make up the time, but we felt it was better to make the decision now rather than approaching it in late 2018 or 2019, when we are well into the process of building the stadium,” Demoff said. “This is a stadium that Angelenos, visitors and world-class athletes will celebrate for years to come, and we are committed to making sure this amazing venue is exceptional from the day it opens.”
