The Raiders, San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams updated the NFL on stadium proposals in the Los Angeles area and their existing home markets during a Wednesday meeting in New York.
Stadium reports were given to the NFL’s Committee on Los Angeles Opportunities, a group comprised of six league owners. Commissioner Roger Goodell was also in attendance.
Raiders owner Mark Davis and Chargers owner Dean Spanos gave an hour-long presentation regarding a privately-financed stadium proposal in Carson designed to house both of their teams, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke presented updates on his proposal to build a stadium in Inglewood.
A committee from St. Louis updated efforts to build a stadium in their city. NFL executive vice president Eric Grubman, the front man for relocation opportunities, gave updates on stadium efforts in San Diego and Oakland.
Grubman visited San Diego officials on April 7 and met with Oakland-Alameda officials at the Raiders facility on April 15.
The Raiders and Chargers issued a joint stadium update about the meeting, which was obtained by CSN Bay Area on Wednesday night. The statement also acknowledged that investment firm Goldman Sachs was also in attendance to discuss the Carson project. The proposal was approved by the Carson City Council on Tuesday by a unanimous 3-0 vote.
Here is the update in its entirety:
“The Raiders and Chargers today made a joint presentation to the NFL's Los Angeles committee of owners. The goal of the presentation was to update the owners on the LA stadium site in Carson, which was fully entitled on Tuesday night. In addition, we presented a new stadium design for LA that is the result of two months of close collaboration between the teams. Goldman Sachs representatives were at the meeting to answer questions about the financing plan. And, finally, both teams updated the owners on the situation in our home markets.”
Owners with interest in Los Angeles relocation are expected to update the league further at next NFL owners meetings, which is set to begin on May 18 in San Francisco.
