NFL Media Will Move Operations to New Rams/Chargers’ LA Stadium in 2021
The league's media operation will depart Culver City for the new Hollywood Park Development
NFL Media will move to the new LA Stadium and Entertainment District (The District) at Hollywood Park in the summer of 2021, Los Angeles Rams owner/Chairman Stan Kroenke and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced today. The NFL will develop a 200,000-sq.-ft. space for headquarter operations housing hundreds of employees at NFL Network, NFL.com, the NFL app, and NFL RedZone. In addition to office and studio space, the facility also will feature NFL Media’s first outdoor studio and space to host studio audiences. NFL Media’s operations have been located at its current facility in Culver City since NFL Network launched in 2003.
The District at Hollywood Park will feature sports and performance venues; office, retail, and residential spaces; and more than 20 acres of parkland. The centerpiece of The District is the new $2.6 billion, 70,000-seat open-air LA Stadium, the future NFL home of the Los Angeles Chargers and Rams set to open in 2020.
“This is a tremendous partnership that will bring new business and jobs to Inglewood and throughout Greater Los Angeles,” said Kroenke. “The NFL is the most-watched programming in the country, and having NFL Media in our district is an important step in creating a global destination at the center of the world’s entertainment capital. The interest in this development and the stadium has been incredible, and NFL Media’s presence will further revitalize a proud and historic part of the Los Angeles landscape. I would like to thank my fellow NFL owners and Commissioner Goodell for believing in our mission and vision for this entire development.”
In February, NFL Media extended the term on its existing lease in Culver City to 2021. As NFL Media has continued to expand both its linear cable and digital efforts, so too has its footprint in Culver City. The new Hollywood Park location is expected to offer the league’s media arm further ability to grow its production operations.
“As home to the Rams and Chargers, and now NFL Media, the LA Stadium and Entertainment District will be an attraction for NFL fans year-round,” said Goodell. “Thanks to Stan’s vision, we know Hollywood Park will be the place to be — not just for football but for entertainment and events, for living, and for working. We are excited for NFL Media to join this transformative project.”
