The Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers will have a new stadium in 2020, and on Wednesday, members of the media were invited to tour the construction site on the Inglewood, California, grounds.

The 70,000-seat, open-air facility that will be shared by the Rams and the Chargers in Inglewood is the centerpiece of a $2.6 billion, 298-acre development that will be 3½ times the size of Disneyland.

The project will require an estimated 7 million man hours. About 2 million of those had been completed by the middle of this week, when the media was escorted through a hard-hat tour of the project.

Here's more from ESPN reporters Alden Gonzalez, Eric Williams and Arash Markazi:

This is the Inglewood stadium from the south end zone, looking north. The performance venue will be at about 4 o'clock. About 2 million man hours have been spent, and the entire stadium will require a little more than 7 million.
