ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Rams have filed an application to relocate to the Los Angeles area after 21 seasons in the Midwest.

The franchise currently has a year-to-year lease with the Edward Jones Dome. Owner Stan Kroenke is part of a group planning a $1.8 billion stadium in Inglewood, California, and the team said on its web site that it sought to relocate to the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area, where the team played from 1946-94.

The Chargers and Raiders have teamed on a joint venture for a stadium in Carson, California.

Los Angeles, the nation's second-largest market, hasn't had a team since the Raiders and Rams left after the 1994 season.

Kroenke has ignored efforts by a St. Louis task force that is proposing a $1.1 billion stadium along the Mississippi River, not far from the Rams' current stadium built in 1995.
