Events would occur at both the Coliseum and future NFL stadium in Inglewood, with most of the opening ceremony held at the new stadium and the closing ceremony held at the Coliseum—which has hosted the games twice before.
The city of LA and the newly returned Los Angeles Rams took a while deciding who would foot the bill for security at home games while the team plays at the Coliseum. After an embarrassing loss to start the season, the Rams have agreed to pay.
The Rams played a (pre-season) game at the Coliseum Saturday for the first time in more than 35 years. Some 90,000 people showed up for the event, but parking was a nightmare, with some lots charging as much as $100 per vehicle.
New renderings and a video show how the venue would be converted from a college football field into a place where track and field events would happen. There's also venue shuffling that's moving swimming events away from the new soccer stadium.
