The NFL has voted to relocate the St. Louis Rams to Los Angeles, and the San Diego Chargers have also been given an option to join them in that respect, according to league Commissioner Roger Goodell.
A stadium that will house the Rams has yet to be built in Inglewood, Rams owner Stan Kroenke announced earlier this month plans to build a stadium in the Los Angeles area. The Rams have been tied to a possible relocation to Los Angeles since January 2014, when Kroenke purchased a piece of land in Inglewood.

The Rams, Chargers and Oakland Raiders all filed paperwork with the NFL earlier this month requesting permission to relocate to the Los Angeles region.
The Oakland Raiders will remain in the Bay Area, but if the Chargers don’t move to Los Angeles, the Raiders will have an option to go. If neither the Raiders or Chargers move to L.A., they’ll receive $100 million to improve their stadiums.
