Billion for the dream of Football in L. A.

Some of the dream was fulfilled, but many more burst. Suddenly. Los Angeles, the metropolis of the Pacific ocean, is a place of longing and a curse at the same time. Many are drawn from all over the country to find happiness. As during the Great Depression is one of the Farmer from the Midwest, from Oklahoma, Iowa, Missouri, whose lives dangerous escape of John Steinbeck in the novel "grapes of wrath" impressive remedy. Or later, all the hopeful young actor: To to California to make money and career.

An uncertain fate A. L. sports teams.From Minneapolis in 1960, was a responsive Basketball Franchise there, but only in Los Angeles Lakers world the glory they had acquired. The baseball player the Dodgers won in California more titles than in their original home of Brooklyn, New York. The ice hockey team, the Los Angeles Kings even with the influx of a century of striker Wayne Gretzky was, however, not a part of the championship team. For Franchises such as the Anaheim Angels or Ducks hardly someone to be interested in today. The Los Angeles Galaxy? Since the departure of David Beckham, a wallflower.

No sports but the region was doing in this Major as difficult as Football. Ironically, the most popular sports in the country after New York's second most important TV market in the country. Over two decades, Los Angeles had home least once a Franchise of the National Football League. That changed in 2016, as the Rams out of St. Louis returned to the old Olympic stadium. And now the result is: If, tomorrow, Sunday, is wrong, for 53. Superbowl meet these Rams on the series winner of the New England, sees the League their longings after a successful L. A. Team met.

The vexing stadium question

in 1946, there were the rich tradition of the reined Rams in the city and home to become as the first professional sports team ever. From Cleveland they came. However, in 1994 they went up again, because of the stadium question frustrated, this time in the Midwest to St. Louis. Because in the same year (and for the same reasons), the Raiders, the city left and in Oakland, a place to Stay found, was in Los Angeles again suddenly without a football team.

In the 20 years since then have been rolling around in L. A. again and again, the stadium plans. Only The Teams shied away from the move. They believed, because Los Angeles is an immigrant city, you would struggle to find a football identity. In L. A. millions of Zuzügern life from all over the country, Fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers or Dallas Cowboys. And his Team to keep, no matter where you live. Add to this the population of Latin America, preferably Baseball and football.

How this assumption is applied to get the Los Angeles to feel Chargers. A year after the Rams, they moved out of the only 200 kilometres South of San Diego in the city. However, because for both Teams it is a suitable stadium must be finished, chose the Chargers the football stadium of the Galaxy as a temporary home. Only 30’000 spectators, however, have space, and usually the away fans are in the Majority. Sometimes, in a ratio of 2:1.

With the arrival of the Rams in the Final of the morning in Atlanta, a step is made to establish Football in Los Angeles again. Such success attracts more Fans. In addition, the Rams have with the 24-year-old Quarterback Jared Goff has a Talent at the most important Position, the can pins as a Californian identity. But Goff must confirm on the big stage. The same is true for head coach, Sean McVay (33), the youngest coach in the NFL history. Seasoned chunks of face in Defensive the New England Patriots: the scary defender Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh.

The gigantic stadium

The most important stage is Los Angeles basically. In 2020, Rams and Chargers should refer to the joint stadium in the suburb of Inglewood, and this project is in the vicinity of the airport of Los Angeles is huge: in addition to the football stadium, an entertainment and media complex as well as the living room. Nearly five billion dollars are estimated, but it is already clear: The prestigious about it from Rams-owner-Stan the, the Arsenal, the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche, is significantly more expensive. For comparison: In Las Vegas, where currently the Raiders are building their new home, the cost of the stadium 1.8 billion.

Because of the higher costs, the rest of the NFL owners had to bend the rules on private financing of a stadium. They did it gladly. Commissioner Goodell has the goal with the NFL in eight years, 25 billion dollars per year to implement – compared to almost 14 billion. This is only possible, if at the time of renewal of TV contracts in the year 2022, a significant increase from the currently around 5 billion a year is achieved. Two successful Teams in the city of angels would not hurt since.
