The NFL confirmed it will release the full 2020 schedule later this week, with a season opener planned for Sept. 10.


It's not entirely clear yet to what extent the NFL will allow fans to attend games in person when the season begins.


The NFL says it will wait until states in which stadiums are located lift their stay-at-home orders.


That's good news in Inglewood, where SoFi Stadium remains under construction as the future home of the Rams and Chargers.


Inglewood Mayor James Butts says the new stadium will offer a big boost to the local economy, which has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.


"We're proud that we are poised to be the catalyst that restarts the economy, restarts hope and entertainment here in the city of Inglewood," Butts said.


"When that stadium opens, that could generate up to 15,000 jobs for the region and for Inglewood residents, and will be a boost to the economy."


The league is preparing backup plans in case COVID-19 is still an issue this fall and stay-at-home restrictions remain in place.
