SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles
Los Angeles is a booming metropolis that is widespread and the hub of Southern California. Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park is under brand new construction and will be known at it’s opening as SoFi Stadium. It’s a new development within the city of Inglewood, California, and is in the outskirts of Los Angeles. It’s approximately 3 miles away from the Los Angeles International Airport, and is southeast of The Forum. It sits at the former location of the Hollywood Park Racetrack.
SoFi Stadium is scheduled to open in 2020, and will be the home stadium for the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers (NFL Football teams.) It’s also scheduled to host the 2022 Super Bowl, as well as the College Football Playoff in January of 2023. During the 2028 Summer Olympics, it’s expected to host the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as other various sporting events associated with the Olympics.
SoFi Stadium is one of two stadiums in the United States and the NFL to be a shared stadium between two teams, the Chargers and the Rams. (The MetLife Stadium hosts both the Giants and the Jets.) However, the city has a history of successfully hosting multiple teams in shared stadiums, as their NBA teams share the Staples Center (the Clippers and the Lakers) and the soccer teams also both play in the same arena.
SoFi Stadium is located in an area known as Hollywood Park, and it was recently announced in September of 2019 that the very first event located inside the brand new SoFi Stadium will be Taylor Swift’s Lover Fest West Concert on July 25, 2020.
