RAMS NEW DOME HOME WILL NOT BE READY AS SCHEDULED
Published October 13, 1995
The stadium authority overseeing construction of the Trans World Dome in St. Louis is expected to announce today that the dome will not be ready for the Rams-49ers' game on October 22, according to this morning's ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. Stadium construction manager Lawrence Akley met Thursday with officials from FANS Inc., the Convention and Visitors Commission and the Rams. A source close to those talks said the authority and the Convention and Visitors Commission "probably will not be able to guarantee delivery of a 'football-ready' first-class facility." If the game is moved to Busch, the Rams will have to refund about 5,000 fans who bought single-game tickets for the dome opener. The team is also "weighing whether it will waive" the $1M penalty called for under the terms of their closing agreement if the stadium is not delivered by October 22 (Lorraine Kee, POST- DISPATCH, 10/13).
