The construction of this masterpiece started on November 17, 2016, and was completed four years later, on September 8, 2020. This stadium and entertainment complex in Inglewood, California, was passionately engineered by Henderson Engineers Inc. and creatively designed by HKS Inc.

SoFi is the fourth stadium and second to be in current use since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger to be shared by two NFL teams, the Rams and the Chargers. And is the largest NFL stadium sitting at 3.1 million square feet with the biggest video screen in the NFL. It is also the first indoor-outdoor stadium to be constructed. And the stadium is surfaced with Matrix Turf.

St. Louis Rams were the first ones to be approved by the NFL to commit to the stadium, as they relocated to Los Angeles in 2016. And the stadium was then built by the Rams’ Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenke.

The future belongs to SoFi Stadium

This marvelous state-of-the-art stadium redefines the spirit of sport to an extreme level. SoFi is said to accommodate up to 70,240 spectators, which is expandable up to 100,240 people during major events like the Super Bowl. This place gave the fans the ultimate experience when it hosted its first-ever NFL game in the first preseason clash of Rams vs Chargers.
