The NFL Back in Los Angeles? The Los Angeles Rams May Seek Come Back!

Unless you haven’t been following the local news, you’ve probably heard that Los Angeles may be getting its NFL team back and a new football stadium to boot!

For years, rumors have been spread only to later be squashed that Los Angeles would be building a brand new stadium and either creating or buying back an NFL team.

This weekend, it was confirmed on LA Curbed that 60 Walmart-owned acres between the newly-reopened Inglewood Forum and the recently-shuttered-for-massive-redevelopment Hollywood Park, sold to the owner of the St. Louis Rams. A representative confirmed the purchase of the property, but stated that they have not yet decided what to do with the property.

So for those of us who didn’t grow up in Los Angeles, or who did but possibly arrived after the Los Angeles Rams were no more, here’s a little history about the team, courtesy of Wikipedia.

The team currently known as the St. Louis Rams previously played in the Greater Los Angeles Area from 1946 to 1994. The Los Angeles Rams played home games at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum between 1946 and 1979 but later moved to the Anaheim Stadium from 1980 to 1994.

Before the Rams played in St. Louis and Los Angeles, they called Cleveland Ohio home, originating from and playing games there between 1936-1946.  The team, however, opted to move to Los Angeles after the Cleveland Browns of the All-America Football Conference was formed.
