The NFL has come to a decision, and it has decided that Los Angeles will now be the new home of the St Louis Rams.

NFL owners decided, according to, by a vote of 30-2 to approve the Rams' relocation application for an immediate move to Los Angeles. They will eventually play on a stadium site in Inglewood owned by their owner Stan Kroenke, in 2019. This will be the first time an NFL franchise will be in LA since 1995.

The Rams might not be the only team to play in LA in 2016, as the San Diego Chargers have a one-year option to decide if they want to join them. They have by the conclusion of the owners meetings near the end of March to decide where they will be.

With the opportunity to sell season tickets, you would think they would make a decision sooner rather than later in order to optimise the amount of money the franchise can make.

There has been a mixed reaction to the move on Twitter, as not everyone agrees with the transition. Obviously, the main benefactors of the move to LA are not only the team, but their financial investors as well. The people who are losing out the most are the fans based in St Louis and the city itself.

If the Chargers decide that a move to LA is not what's best for their franchise, next in line will be the Oakland Raiders, who will also have a one-year option to decide if they want to join the Rams in 2016.

Whatever happens, there will definitely be an NFL team in LA next season.
