Rams, CVC Go to Arbitration Over Dome Upgrades

Edward Jones Dome

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The St. Louis Rams and the Convention and Visitors Commission have been unable to reach an agreement over upgrades to the Edward Jones Dome. Now the issue will go to arbitration.

The CVS’s $124 million plan called for better amenities and a massive new scoreboard, but it required the team to contribute $64 million towards the project.  The Rams counter-proposal was more elaborate. It called for a new roof with a sliding panel, replacing most of the brick exterior with a glass front and even re-routing a nearby street.

The Rams did not provide a cost estimate, but an aide to Mayor Slay believes it would cost about $700 million.

Arbitrators could endorse either plan or come up with one of their own.
