The huge anticipation over the possible return of an NFL franchise to Los Angeles has been making some serious moves over the last few months.
With rumours very strong that there are three franchises interested in moving to America's second city, everyone is wondering who will be the team to move.
With the St Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders the teams who are being rumoured for the move, two of the teams made a huge announcement on Thursday.
The owner of the Rams Stan Kroenke unveiled plans for an 80,000 seater stadium on land he owns near Hollywood Park in January.
But could the Rams now be at the back of the line following the joint announcement made by the Raiders and Chargers on Thursday.

The two franchises announced that they have collaborated on a proposal for a $1.7 million stadium to be built in Carson, California.
With the two franchises looking to share a stadium within the Los Angeles market, the two could certainly trump the Rams attempts to become the first LA team since 1995.
In a joint statement, both teams claimed to have faced issues with trying to find new stadium solutions in their current markets and that they both remain committed to finding suitable solutions.
There is set to be a petition drive for a ballot initiative to get voter approval to build the stadium that would house two NFL franchises.
All three teams the Rams, Raiders and Chargers can terminate their current stadium leases at the end of the 2015 season.
LA coming to the NFL
The NFL hasn't had an LA based franchise since 1995 when the Rams and Raiders departed for their newer markets.
It now seems almost certain that one of them will be back for the 2016 season and Thursday's announcement could even see the San Diego Chargers join the party.
There are currently three NFL teams based in California and the Rams moving from Missouri out West would make it the most populated state in the league.
