Calif. group boosts bid for Rams

September 18, 1994|By Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES -- With St. Louis and Baltimore knocking hard at the Los Angeles Rams' door, the Orange County contingent trying to keep the team in Southern California upped the stakes Friday, presenting the Rams with a package that would assure the team revenues of between $15 million and $20 million a year.

For the first time, the new proposal also includes all-important PTC season ticket and luxury box guarantees similar to ones being offered by other cities wooing the team.

In a two-hour meeting at the Rams' Los Angeles headquarters Friday, members of the Save the Rams task force promised the Rams sales of 45,000 season tickets and the income from roughly 100 luxury boxes -- mostly from within the Orange County business community.

The group also boosted the renovation package for Anaheim Stadium from the $40 million offered last month to $60 to $70 million, and included a definite timetable for completion of the renovations.

The new package also more than doubles -- from about $5 million to $12 million -- the budget for a proposed state-of-the-art training facility and corporate headquarters in Orange County.
