The St. Louis Rams have not been very successful since they moved to St. Louis from Los Angeles in 1994. The lowest point, perhaps, came in 2009 when the team went 1-15. But the team’s record of 30 wins against 67 losses since then, a rapidly aging stadium, and low fan turnout had stadium owner Stan Kroenke thinking long and hard about what to do with the team.
Then suddenly in 2014 Kroenke announced the purchase of a 38-acre parcel in Hollywood Hills, in Inglewood, California, adjacent to a 260-acre parcel owned by Stockbridge Capital Group. Kroenke, who had worked for the St. Louis Cardinals when they left St..Louis for Phoenix, Arizona, then announced plans to build an 80,000 seat stadium in Inglewood.
The stadium Stan Kroenke is planning is pictured above.
