Rams stadium opening pushed back to 2020

Rams stadium opening pushed back to 2020

Developers are blaming the delay on the massive amount of rainfall that California had this past year, much of which fell during excavation for the site.

No doubt those figures played heavily into the construction timetable announced for the opening of the Inglewood stadium.

"If getting it right means pushing back the completion date, then I think the extra year is well worth it", he said in a statement on the Chargers website.

Instead, the Rams will remain in the Coliseum that season and the Chargers will remain at Stub Hub Center in Carson.

San Diego lost the Chargers to Los Angeles amid a almost decade-long stadium spat. Rivers' contract runs through the 2019 season, so the Chargers will need to extend the veteran quarterback's contract if the team's wants the North Carolina product to christen the new facility. At times, the site looked like a lake, with water standing 12 to 15 feet deep. "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 venue is exceptional from the day it opens". Spanos noted that construction "is our family business, " and such challenges can occur with "a project of this magnitude". The delay will allow construction to proceed at a more conventional pace, according to a statement issued by the Chargers.

Los Angeles was granted the 2021 Super Bowl last May soon after the Rams were approved for relocation to Los Angeles from St. Louis. The complex also includes plans for a hotel, retail space, office space and a 6,000-seat entertainment venue.

The stadium is now expected to open for the 2020 season. The Chargers exercised their opportunity to join the Rams in Los Angeles four months ago.
