The Los Angeles Rams are set to usher in a new era at SoFi Stadium in the 2020 NFL season with defensive tackle Aaron Donald as the main headliner.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke has spared no expense for the construction of this $5 billion, 70,000-seat venue. They have even revealed some of the new features that will be included such as a state-of-the-art Oculus scoreboard hovering below a translucent roof.
It is a stadium worthy of serving as a platform for household names like Donald. It appears he has finally started to get acquainted with his future stomping grounds.
Donald recently visited SoFi Stadium to check out all the latest developments, via the team’s official Youtube channel:
The Rams have experienced some significant turnover to their roster this offseason that has left Donald feeling indifferent about the departures of running back Todd Gurley, defensive tackle Michael Brockers and linebacker Cory Littleton, among others. Fortunately, he still has something to look forward to leading up to the 2020 campaign.
Although Los Angeles may have parted ways with some serious star power in an effort to shore up some much-needed cap space, they can take solace in the fact that Donald continues to be worth every penny. It is safe to say that all their hopes for a potential resurgence next season will begin with his dominant performance upfront.
Of course, it remains to be seen whether or not the construction will remain on schedule due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Recent reports suggest that despite the state of California taking precautions in order to help curb the outbreak, the construction will continue.
The last update on SoFi stated that the stadium was about 85% complete, and it is expected to be ready in time for the 2020 season.
