Three NFL Teams Submit Applications to Relocate to L.A.

In what’s being called an “aggressive move” to return the NFL to Los Angeles, three NFL teams — the Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams — filed relocation applications with the league Monday, the first day they were eligible to do so, the Los Angeles Times reports.

“The development was unprecedented since the Raiders and Rams left the country’s second-largest market after the 1994 season,” the paper reports. “Dozens of stadium proposals and renderings have come and gone, but this is the first time any teams have formally requested to fill the L.A. vacancy.”

Two competing plans have long been in the works to bring teams to L.A., with the Rams involved in a $1.86 billion Inglewood stadium project while the Chargers and Raiders are part of a proposal to build a $1.7 billion venue in Carson.

  1. This is interesting, as winning is all that counts in LA. If these teams don’t win conference championships quickly, they will be forgotten in LA just as the Raiders were before. There are too many entertainment options in LA to spend money on tickets for a team that isn’t a big winner. And if people aren’t in the stadium, ad and sponsorship rights lose value quickly.
