Members of the task force looking to build a $1 billion NFL stadium along St. Louis’ north Mississippi riverfront will present to a handful of team owners on November 11.

National Football League officials confirmed that representatives from St. Louis, Oakland and San Diego will present in front of a joint meeting of the Los Angeles, stadium and finance committees next week in New York City to discuss proposed stadium projects.

The committee, made up of six league owners and chaired by Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney III, oversees the entire relocation process as it relates to the NFL and the three teams that have expressed interest in moving to Los Angeles — the St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league expects each city to make a 45 minute presentation followed by a Q&A session with owners. McCarthy said he expects team representatives to be in the room as well. No vote on relocation is expected to be taken during the meeting.
