The Los Angeles Rams announced Thursday that the opening of the team's new 70,000-seat stadium had been delayed by roughly one year following a winter of record rainfall.
Southern California's heavy rains this year eased the drought but put a damper on the NFL's plans to build a stadium in Inglewood by 2019. According to Rams COO Kevin Demoff, also via the Times, the two teams didn't want to risk pushing the schedule and having to cut any corners. "Stan's decision on this was based on delivering a world-class stadium at the highest quality possible, and that was the only basis for this decision".
The Rams will probably play a fourth consecutive global game in 2019, because National Football League rules mandate them for teams playing out of a temporary stadium. "It was a very unforgiving two months for the project".
The stadium is part of a $2.6 billion entertainment complex that is proposed to include a 6,000-seat performing arts space, mammoth office spaces, 300 hotel rooms and residential housing. Construction crews have already "removed six million cubic yards of dirt", per the Rams.
Fourteen months ago, Demoff told The Times, "Our focus has always been on introducing new uniforms the year we open a new stadium". Nearby Los Angeles International Airport received 15.4 inches of rain from November through February.

McCarthy noted there is a precedent for owners waiving rules for hosting a Super Bowl.
That no longer is feasible for the Inglewood stadium due to the one-year construction delay. The Chargers will stay at the 30,000-seat StubHub Center in 2019.
The Rams will undergo a partial redesign starting with the 2017 season, but a full redesign, including their jerseys, was expected for 2019.
