NEW YORK (AP) – Representatives from three cities where NFL teams are in the hunt to move to Los Angeles are set to give presentations next week in New York.
St. Louis and San Diego have previously discussed their proposed stadium projects with the league, but the Nov. 11 meeting will be the first time Oakland gives a presentation.
The Raiders and Chargers have been taking preliminary steps in anticipation of getting approval to move to Los Angeles. They announced plans for a joint stadium in Carson in February after St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke said he wanted to build a new stadium in Inglewood.
The STLNFL task force released the following statement:
“We are ready to represent St. Louis next week and present our stadium and riverfront development project to the Los Angeles, Finance and Stadium committees. We thank the NFL and its owners for the invitation and look forward to walking through our plan and answering any questions the league and its owners may have. St. Louis is a spectacular NFL market, with loyal and passionate fans, yet our best days as a football town are still ahead of us with a new stadium anchoring a revitalized north downtown riverfront.”
The league said there will be no votes at the committee meeting. The NFL could decide in January whether it will place a team in L.A. for 2016.
