SoFi Stadium, the future home of the Los Angeles Chargers and Rams of the NFL and future venue to countless entertainment events and the 2028 Summer Olympics, is starting to see more and more fallout from the current health crisis.
Most recently, Taylor Swift canceled all of her live performances for the rest of the 2020 calendar year, including the very first concert set to take place in the $5 billion stadium.

The actions taken by Swift and her people likely spell more decisions in the future for large-scale events taking place in Los Angeles and at SoFi. If things aren’t starting to look brighter by the end of July, and if the Stadium isn’t finished by mid-August, I’m really going start worrying about the possibility of football not being played in the new stadium this year. If that were to happen, God help us all as we navigate a full calendar year without the NFL.
