The answer is “yes,” at least if the Los Angeles Football Stadium people have anything to say about it. The stadium is part of a 600-acre district that is designed and ready to break ground in Industry, Calif. Led by Ed Roski, part owner of the L.A. Lakers and L.A. Kings, the Los Angeles Football Stadium team has dotted almost every “i” and crossed all nearly every “t.” That is, except the big one. According to their website, www.losangelesfootballstadium.com, all they are waiting for is a team to sign.

But that’s not the only group trying to bring football back to Los Angeles. AEG, one of the world’s largest sports and entertainment presenters and owner of L.A.’s Staples Center, is also working hard to attract a team. Their location of choice would be in downtown Los Angeles, in order to complement their Staples Center property.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recently tossed a little cold water on the hopes, saying the NFL would not likely add a team until they are ready to add two teams to keep symmetry in the leagues. The Los Angeles Football stadium, part of the proposed Grand Crossing complex, is estimated to be able to bring 8,000 jobs and more than $400 million revenue into the local economy. •
