In just four short years, the NFL’s presence in Los Angeles went from nonexistent to vibrant with the arrival of the Rams and Chargers, and in 2020, the two teams get a new playground in SoFi Stadium, which promises to set a new standard in live football-watching.
Located in the L.A. suburb of Inglewood, near the Los Angeles International Airport, SoFi Stadium was constructed on the site of the old Hollywood Park race track, across the street from The Forum (former home of the L.A. Lakers and Kings).
Coming in with a price tag of $5 billion, making it the most expensive stadium ever built in the NFL, SoFi Stadium promises to usher in several technological enhancements to the live viewing experience — foremost among them being the oculus videoboard that will hang over the playing field.
The facility will also have a transparent roof, which doesn’t seem to make much sense in sunny Southern California until you consider all of the other events the stadium has already booked. Super Bowl LV in 2022, the College Football Playoff national championship game in 2023 and events during the 2028 Summer Olympics are already coming. And in addition to NFL games, a new college football bowl, the Los Angeles Bowl, will begin play in December 2020.
The Rams and Chargers are moving into their new stadium after spending several seasons at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Dignity Health Sports Park, respectively. For both, the arrival is long-awaited after decidedly different stadium experiences. The NFL is also expected to move its media operation, including its NFL Network studios, to the Hollywood Park campus from its current home in nearby Culver City.
Look out for our full guide to SoFi Stadium after the facility opens in the fall of 2020.
