After almost two decades without an NFL team in Los Angeles, officials in the most-populated California city are one step closer to being able to lure a team to the area. With the financial documents signed, L.A.'s NFL fans have a lot to anticipate these next few years.

Stating Los Angeles is "one giant step closer to bringing the NFL back," Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Anschutz Entertainment Group President and CEO Tim Leiweke signed off Wednesday on a deal for a football stadium and convention center hall in downtown L.A.

Standing outside the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center, which would be demolished to build the stadium, the mayor and AEG executive signed key financial documents authorizing the 72,000 seat stadium and new hall.
