The push to bring NFL football back to Los Angeles took another step forward on Tuesday night.
According to Nathan Fenno of the Los Angeles Times, the Inglewood City Council unanimously voted to approve the stadium project at Hollywood Park bring championed by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke.
The vote allows officials to avoid putting the project to a vote and skips potentially lengthy environmental reviews. Kroenke has been behind the efforts to build the $2 billion stadium on the former site of the Hollywood Park horse racking track.
With Carson, Calif. also in the running to develop a stadium to house the Chargers and Raiders if those teams can’t get new stadiums in their respective markets, the options for the NFL to return to Los Angeles are more real than ever.
