The $2.6 billion sports complex is set to open in 2020 and will host Super Bowl LVI in 2022. Privately financed by Rams owner Stan Kroenke, the stadium will be owned and operated by the Rams franchise and will be leased by the Chargers.
Chris Hibbs, chief officer of the L.A. Stadium and Entertainment District told the Los Angeles Times:
“This is on a different scale because everything about what Stan is doing is on a different scale, this project is big and different in all positive ways.”
The stadium is a centerpiece of an attempt to renovate the Inglewood area. Kroenke and his business group have planned a revitalization of the area that includes new businesses, restaurants and other facilities that will make it attractive to fans and residents.
