The National Football League announced Monday night that three teams had submitted applications to relocate their franchises to the Los Angeles area.
The Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams and San Diego Chargers all submitted paperwork to move their teams to L.A. starting with the 2016 season.
The NFL said in a statement that each application will be reviewed this week and that three league committees will meet in New York on Wednesday and Thursday.
"The applications will be presented for consideration at next week’s league meeting in Houston on Tuesday and Wednesday," the statement said. "The relocation of a franchise requires the affirmative vote of three-quarters of the NFL clubs (24 of 32)."
