Los Angeles has pro football again, with the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.

For the next few weeks though, Ventura County is home to one of the most legendary franchises in professional sports, the Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys fans from around the country are coming to see their beloved team in droves, in what is almost a pilgrimage for the football fanatics.

The Los Angeles Rams are going to base their training operations in Ventura County while their stadium is being built in Los Angeles.

California Lutheran University and the Rams announced this morning that they’ve reached an agreement for the pro football team to add practice fields and temporary buildings to the university’s north campus to use as a base camp. It will be home for about 130 players, trainers, coaches, and other support staff. Starting in September, regular and off season practices will be held at the facility.

There’s a new sign that the Los Angeles Rams could be spending more time in Ventura County.

The team already has a deal to hold spring workouts in Oxnard, at the longtime home of the Dallas Cowboys summer training camps. Now, a developer has filed an application with the City of Thousand Oaks to put up to 50,000 square feet of modular buildings on the north campus of California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.
