WATCH: Behind-the-scenes tour of new Rams & Chargers stadium in Inglewood
HKS Architects know a thing or two about stadium design.
The firm is responsible for AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis and US Bank Stadium in Minneaspolis, the site of February’s Super Bowl LII.
HKS, along with the Rams and Chargers, allowed members of the media to get a first-hand look at the 300-acre construction of the shared NFL stadium site in Inglewood — scheduled to open for the 2020 season.
And it’s extremely impressive.
“There is no other venue like this in the entire world,” said Mark Williams, Principal at HKS.
The venue will be used for year-round events for sports and entertainment and will host Super Bowl LVI in Feb. of 2022, the College Football National Title Game in 2023 and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the 2028 Olympic Games.
