NFL to LA soon?
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mayor Eric Garcetti says an NFL team is “highly likely” to come to Los Angeles in the next year, in the strongest terms yet about the prospect of luring professional football back to the city.
Garcetti says that though the city doesn’t want to subsidize a stadium, he thinks the NFL is “finally interested” in Los Angeles again. He made his remarks during an “Ask the Mayor” segment on radio station KNX Thursday.
The Los Angeles Times reports team owners received an update on the LA situation from league executives at the NFL’s annual fall meetings in New York this week.
New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch tells the newspaper there were references to potential new locations, including a couple in the Carson area of south Los Angeles County.
