Rams are rugged, naturally stubborn creatures, never giving in and yet never staying still for that long. The St. Louis Rams match the personality of their namesake, having had two other major cities act as their home in previous incarnations before going to St. Louis, the Rams parking in Edward Jones Stadium. Under the moniker of the Trans World Dome, the Rams’ stadium opened for business in November 1995 at a cost of $280 million, designed by stadium architect Populous. The stadium was renovated in 2009, which upgraded the scoreboards to LED displays, as well as adding LED ribbons to follow the curvature of the dome. Along with a rebuilt locker room for the Rams, premium lounges for fans were added.
The Edward Jones Dome is located north of Busch Stadium and directly to the west of the Mississippi River, but its reputation is more like the latter - it is muddied, constantly in flux and opaque in terms of its future. Despite the relatively recent construction, the Rams are unsatisfied with their stadium, demanding that it be either brought up to their specifications, or else will attempt to leave their contract with the facility as soon as possible. Negotiations between the Rams and the St. Louis Convention and Visitor Center are ongoing, and both parties are in arbitration proceedings while the details are worked out. One problem that the Rams don’t seem to be too upset about is the Edward Jones Dome parking situation, but then again they don’t have to park there. If you love the Rams, do the smart thing and book your Rams parking spot ahead of time with ParkWhiz.
Prior to being St. Louis’ NFL team, they began at first as the Cleveland Rams for the short-lived AFL. When they joined the NFL in 1937, only four players from the AFL team followed. Despite technically being a different team, the NFL’s Rams stayed in Cleveland for eight years, winning the NFL Championship in 1945. In 1946, the Rams relocated to Los Angeles. The Rams’ first Super Bowl appearance came in 1979, when they faced the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Rose Bowl stadium, where the Rams lost 19-31. In 1980, the Rams relocated to Anaheim due to falling attendance in the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. In 1994, the Rams moved again to St. Louis, with a clause in their deal stipulating that the St. Louis stadium must be in the top 25% of NFL stadium revenue, which is the reason why the team has been in negotiations with the St. Louis CVC. The Rams still won the 1999 Super Bowl against the Tennessee Titans, 23-16. The Rams never give up, and neither should you in your quest for convenient Edward Jones Dome parking.
