LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The Los Angeles Rams are going to have something the Dodgers and Lakers didn’t get — a victory parade.
Rams Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff said Monday a Super Bowl victory parade will be held Wednesday, although a time has not yet been determined.
Demoff said the parade will originate from the Shrine Auditorium and end a relatively short distance away at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where a rally will be held in the peristyle-end plaza outside the stadium.
The Rams played at the Coliseum from 2016-19 while SoFi Stadium was being built.
The exact route of the parade also was not immediately released.
The Dodgers and Lakers were denied victory parades following their 2020 championship seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Rams claimed the Super Bowl title Sunday with a 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Monday the Rams victory capped a triumphant NFL return to the Southland.
“The NFL needed L.A., and L.A. needed the NFL,” Garcetti told reporters in downtown Los Angles. “It was a broken-heart story. If it was Hollywood, it would have been maybe a rom-com. But at least some sort of romance. But it was our destiny to come back together.”
The mayor thanked NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, saying the league
“bet big on L.A., not just once but twice, with two great teams.”
