LOS ANGELES, CA – A plan to build a NFL stadium in downtown Los Angeles may be a non starter. Yahoo! Sports sources say that the Anschutz Entertainment Group’s plan to build a stadium called “Farmer’s Field” may be called off due to economic factors. It may be too hard for AEG to make money and pay the debt on the stadium.
Six months ago the LA City council approved AEG’s plan to build the stadium. A spokesman from the NFL said they are still monitoring the situation.
The league has been interested in a plan to build a stadium across from the Staple’s Center for years. They want the project to be successful when the NFL returns to Los Angeles.
