INGLEWOOD, CA (KCAL/KCBS/CNN) – Could an empty lot in Los Angeles be the site of a new NFL stadium?
The Los Angeles Times confirmed the owner of the St. Louis Rams bought the 60-acre plot.
According to the report, it could be used for an NFL stadium. Billionaire Stan Kroenke's organization told the Times they haven't decided what the land will be used for, but maintained they're keeping all options open.
The idea has support among some in L.A.
"I'm dying for a football team to come back here, and I'm hoping it's the Rams," said Inglewood resident Tony Scott.
The Rams haven't been able to work out a new stadium deal in St. Louis. Under the terms of their current lease, the team can move after the 2014 season.
There are currently two other NFL stadium proposals in L.A.: one at Farmers Field next to the Staples Center in downtown, and another in the "City of Industry" led by a co-owner of the L.A. Kings.
The city has been without an NFL team since 1994.
