Stadium for Rams, Chargers delayed; won't open until 2020

Sunshine, beaches and movie stars: That's usually what L.A.is known for (besides riots, traffic and droughts).

National Football League rules have long held that a new stadium can't host the Super Bowl in its first season, and the Inglewood stadium is slated to host the Super Bowl in February 2021. That caused deep pools of water on the construction grounds, some as high as 15 feet, and stopped construction work for nearly 2 months, thus delaying the project.

The Rams made project officials available to discuss the delay in response to a request by The Times. The teams announced Thursday that construction complications will delay the stadium opening to 2020.

Other planned timetables pushed back?

The opening of the new joint-use stadium for the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers has been delayed until 2020.

The Rams are likely to stay in the Coliseum for the 2019 season.

The Inglewood stadium is also a lynchpin in Los Angeles' bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.

Also, the National Football League awarded L.A. the 2021 Super Bowl.

The stadium is now expected to open for the 2020 season. Undoubtedly, more details will surface soon.

McCarthy noted there is a precedent for owners waiving rules for hosting a Super Bowl.

Alas, big plans don't go well with unwelcomed surprises, and the project got a big one when California saw record rainfall this winter season (the National Weather Service said that December was the wettest month in downtown L.A. in six years).

Not a bad deal if you ask me.
