Rams owner announces plans to build Los Angeles stadium

The St. Louis Rams could be headed back to Los Angeles.

Rams owner Stan Kroenke announced plans to build an NFL stadium in Inglewood, Calif.

Kroenke bought 60 acres of land last year.

The stadium would be adjacent to Hollywood Park.

The stadium will have 80,000 seats.

"We are excited to unveil an expanded plan that will bring a world-class sports and entertainment district to Hollywood Park," Terry Fancher, founder of Stockbridge, said in a statement. "We are committed to working with [the Kroenke Group] to build a project that will put Inglewood back on the map as home of the truly great sports and entertainment venues."

For Kroenke to move the Rams, he would likely need to wait until 2016.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said last month that no teams would be moving to Los Angeles for the 2015 season.

For Kroenke to announce plans to build a stadium is a bold move. And it's unlikely the billionaire would do so without assurances that he can move the Rams out of St. Louis and back to California.
