Engineering firm AECOM and Turner Construction have been chosen to oversee the development of the future home stadium of NFL American football franchise the Los Angeles Rams.

The 70,000-capacity venue will be located in Inglewood, California and act as the focal point of the 298-acre multi-purpose Hollywood Park space.

Turner and AECOM, which have teamed up to construct a number of NFL venues in the past, will join forces on the development having been selected by the Hollywood Park Land Company (HPLC).

“After a competitive review of a number of outstanding construction firms, we have hired the best team to build the largest and most technologically advanced sports stadium in the world for the Los Angeles Rams," Terry Fancher, HPLC president, said.

"These firms also offered a well-developed plan for meeting Hollywood Park's commitment to provide substantial employment opportunities for local Inglewood residents and meaningful economic participation in the stadium construction process for minority-owned business enterprises.”

The franchise, formerly known as the St. Louis Rams, has relocated to Los Angeles ahead of the 2016-17 NFL season. The team will spend the next three years at the LA Coliseum, with a move to Inglewood proposed for 2019.
