The National Football League (NFL) team Los Angeles Rams recently announced that they will be moving their practice facility to Woodland Hills, California (US) in advance of the 2024 NFL season.

‘LA Rams’ stated that the facility will be located at the corner of West Oxnard Street and Canoga Avenue, part of the nearly 100-acres in Woodland Hills acquired last year by the Los Angeles Rams Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenke.

New York (US)-based the National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league that consists of 32 teams, divided equally between the American Football Conference and the National Football Conference.

The Los Angeles Rams are a professional American football team based in the Greater Los Angeles area (US). The Rams compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member of the National Football Conference West division.

The SoFi Stadium is a 70,240-seat sports and entertainment indoor stadium in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood, California, United States. The SoFi Stadium occupies the former site of the Hollywood Park Racetrack, three miles from the Los Angeles International Airport and 0.5 miles Southeast of the 17,505-capacity The Kia Forum. It serves as the home ground of the NFL teams Los Angeles Ram and Los Angeles Chargers.

‘LA Rams’ further stated that the above announcement took place during a celebration at the adjacent Topanga Village in Los Angeles, an indoor-outdoor shopping and dining destination that also is part of the 100-acres. Los Angeles Rams Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff was joined by Council Member Bob Blumenfield to announce the above move.

Said Demoff, “This is a monumental day for the Los Angeles Rams as we can now call the Woodland Hills and the City of Los Angeles our home. We are grateful to Councilman Blumenfield for his support and to this wonderful community for welcoming us to their neighborhood. Since bringing the Rams home to Los Angeles, Stan Kroenke’s commitment to this region is unmatched and we are excited to expand our footprint and deepen our impact across the City.”

This celebratory moment culminated the Rams Community Blitz Day of Service in Woodland Hills, which included stops at the West Valley Food Pantry as well as Holiday for Heroes military appreciation events at the two local schools – Calabash Charter Academy and Woodlake Elementary Community Charter.

Stated Council member Blumenfield, “I am thrilled that Stan Kroenke and the Los Angeles Rams are investing in our community and calling Woodland Hills their home. I look forward to partnering with the Rams and the Kroenke Group as they develop plans for their footprint and investments in the Warner Center and deepen their local relationships.”

The Warner Center is a master-planned neighborhood and business district development in the Canoga Park and Woodland Hills neighborhoods of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, California.

Over the next few months, the Rams will set up a facility on this land consisting of modular trailers that will include office space and meeting rooms for coaches, players, scouts and staff, a weight room and training room, locker room, media room, and meal room. Adjacent to the trailers will be two football fields where the team will train and practice.

This is the first step of Kroenke’s long-term vision for the land, which is part of the tremendous development envisioned for Woodland Hills under the Warner Center 2035 plan. Once the practice facility is set up, the organization will begin exploring a larger development that will include the permanent headquarters and practice facility for the team, as well as a plan to include residential, commercial and retail uses along with green spaces and other community-serving amenities.

The Topanga Village is one of the premier shopping and dining destinations in the West Valley with over 70 shops and restaurants ranging from popular national brands to unique local businesses. The outdoor shopping center features a playground for children, pet-friendly areas and water features that are perfect for the hot Summer days. The Topanga Village serves as a community gathering place and hosts a wide range of events throughout the year including Summer live music, a pumpkin patch, outdoor workout classes, and holiday events. Future improvements to the center will prioritize creating a space where people can come together to shop, dine and socialize in a beautiful environment.

Much of Kroenke’s professional life has been dedicated to real estate and community development. In 1983, he founded the Kroenke Group, a leading national firm that builds and manages shopping centers and apartment buildings across the United States. The Kroenke Group owns and operates shopping centers in 39 States that amount to 40 million square feet. Throughout his career, he has launched and transformed dozens of business ventures, including television and radio stations, warehouses and renowned vineyards and ranches in North America and Europe. In a confluence of his areas of expertise – sports, retail, commercial, and residential development – Kroenke constructed the SoFi Stadium and continues to develop the Hollywood Park in Inglewood, California.

Spanning nearly 300 acres, Hollywood Park is the largest urban mixed-use development under construction in the Western United States. Being built by the Los Angeles Rams Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenke, this unprecedented and unparalleled project is transforming the site of the former Hollywood Park racetrack into a year-round sports and entertainment destination. The dynamic campus offers modern, sophisticated residences, public parks, creative, open office space, and a highly curated, diverse shopping experience with many local, minority and women-owned businesses.
