Rams, Chargers to stay put as opening of new NFL stadium in Inglewood delayed to 2020

Quote:Excavation of the site, which formerly housed the Hollywood Park racetrack, started in November, but the teams said that weather delays in January, February and March have made it infeasible for the stadium to open for the 2019 NFL season, as scheduled.

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

The announcement could have far-reaching ramifications beyond some frustrating logistics issues for the two clubs. It could also mean Los Angeles losing out on hosting the Super Bowl in 2021.

By league rule, a new stadium must be open at least two full regular seasons to be eligible to host a Super Bowl.

But by delaying the Inglewood stadium’s opening by one year, that means the NFL might have to bend some rules to enable Los Angeles to host the Super Bowl in 2021 or lose the game all together.

Building a stadium in LA was bound to have issues. I doubt this will be the only delays that occur. Even the new Falcons stadium won't be ready at the start of the season due to over ambitious designs. The facility in Inglewood I think will have the same thing happen

the chargers move to Los Angeles was a questionable move to begin with, but was considered worth it because of a potential long term payoff, which could justify moving to city without a certain fanbase and having to play in a 25k soccer stadium for 2 years.

now that potential long term benefit is being kicked even farther out in the future.

They're not gonna move the Super Bowl from LA. It'seems not Indianapolis or even DFW for goodness sake.
