Construction of SoFi Stadium is more than 85% complete, according to Los Angeles Rams COO Kevin Demoff, who touted the project’s progress in a letter to fans on Thursday.
The Rams will be joined by the Los Angeles Chargers at the upcoming SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, which is on track to open prior to the 2020 NFL season. With the Rams ending their 2019 season last Sunday, the organization published a letter from Demoff on its website Thursday that provided a look ahead at what is to come in 2020, including the debut of SoFi Stadium.
In that letter, Demoff said that construction on the project is more than 85% complete. Additionally, he noted some of its design features and planned amenities in the stadium, which is part of a project led by Rams owner Stan Kroenke:
Stan Kroenke’s vision to transform both the fan experience and our region will come to life this fall, reimagining gamedays for Angelenos and the entire NFL. SoFi Stadium will be a destination that will welcome Rams fans from around the world and is more than 85% complete, with the roof panel and seat installations underway. The Oculus, a first-of-its-kind 70,000 square foot double-sided display board with 4k video, is being assembled within the stadium. Our culinary experience, which will be uniquely Los Angeles and feature food made to order in front of your eyes, is being finalized. Additionally, we continue to focus on making this the best fan experience in the world with the latest technology, amazing partnerships, operational ease and our diehard fans. Last Friday, I toured 17 of our Season Ticket Members who make up our Rams Fan Council around the building and it was powerful to see first-hand their reaction to the stadium and invaluable to hear their ideas for what gamedays at the Rams House should be.
The Rams finished third in the NFC West this season with a 9-7 record, putting them short of qualifying for the postseason. That means the team has ended its temporary run at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which has served as the franchise’s home since it returned to Los Angeles from St. Louis prior to the 2016 season. After relocating from San Diego before the 2017 campaign, the Chargers played home games at Dignity Health Sports Park in suburban Carson.
SoFi Stadium will be the anchor of the larger Hollywood Park development, a sprawling 298-acre sports and entertainment destination that is expected to draw crowds on a year-round basis. The stadium naming-rights agreement with SoFi, a digital personal-finance firm, was announced in September.
