The plan to bring an NFL team to Los Angeles is in the works. On Tuesday, Los Angeles City Council voted to approve a nonbinding agreement with a developer to build a $1.2 billion stadium. The stadium called “Farmers Field” would be privately funded and have more than 72,000-seats. The location they’re talking about is just south of Staples Center, which would open in 2016. The new stadium would create 14,000 construction jobs and 6,300 permanent ones. Now the NFL must decide if there will be a team. Under the agreement, if no team, no stadium.
