Stan Kroenke, owner of the St. Louis Rams, says that he plans on building an 80,000 seat NFL stadium in Los Angeles. Inglewood to be exact.

The billionaire and paramount shareholder of the English soccer club Arsenal has already bought 60 acres next the the Forum. According to the Los Angeles Times, Kroenke is partnering up with the owners of the former Hollywood Park horse racing track which made up 238 acres next to the Forum.

The Rams have yet to reach a deal to fund renovations for the 19-year-old Edward Jones Dome, meaning that the Rams can terminate their lease with the city of St. Louis.

The Rams are a former Los Angeles NFL team, having left the city in 1994, and they could return as early as 2016. However, the new stadium wouldn’t be complete until 2018. If the league’s owners approve the relocation, the Rams would most likely play at the Rose Bowl or the Los Angeles Coliseum.
