Three National Football League teams proposing new stadiums in the Los Angeles area will present their plans on April 22 to a six-owner committee in charge of Los Angeles stadium process.

St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke and the owners of the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers will present their most recent plans, including detailed information about financing, architecture and political ramifications.

NFL Executive Vice President Eric Grubman also will update the owners committee on progress by all three of the teams’ current markets to keep the teams.

In early January, a group including Kroenke announced plans to build a stadium as part of a larger redevelopment in Inglewood, Calif. In March, the Raiders and Chargers announced that they were developing plans to build a two-team stadium in Carson, Calif.

A St. Louis group led by former Anheuser-Busch President Dave Peacock and St. Louis attorney Bob Blitz have has proposed proposed a new, 63,000-seat stadium on the Mississippi River. The project has met some political opposition, and funding for the close to $1 billion stadium remains a major hurdle.
