The Los Angeles Rams are a professional American football team that play in the Los Angeles metropolitan region. In the National Football League, the Rams compete in the National Football Conference West division.
The Cleveland Rams football team was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, for the first time in 1936. Before moving to Los Angeles in 1946 to make place for Paul Brown’s All-America Football Conference Cleveland Browns, the team won the 1945 NFL Championship Game. They ended up being the only NFL winners to play in a different city the next year as a result.
The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum served as the team’s home venue up until 1980, when it moved to the recently constructed Anaheim Stadium in Orange County, California. The Rams participated in their first Super Bowl at the end of the 1979 NFL season, where they were defeated by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
After the 1994 NFL season, the Rams moved to St. Louis, Missouri, and adopted the moniker St. Louis Rams. After the 2015 NFL season, the franchise asked the other owners for permission to move back to Los Angeles in time for the 2016 NFL season, and they agreed. The Rams competed in Super Bowl LIII but were defeated by the Patriots. Being the only NFL club to have won championships while representing three different cities—Cleveland in 1945, Los Angeles in 1951 and 2021, and St. Louis in 1999—the team holds this distinction.
