The Pasadena Sun reports that Pasadena City Council members voted 7-1 to increase the number of events allowed at the Rose Bowl from the current 12 a year to 25 if a deal is struck with an NFL team.

Currently, the Rose Bowl is home to UCLA football and the Rose Bowl game in January, which fils most of the current events allowed by the city. Raising the event limit to 25 will ensure there will be plenty of space to accompany the eight to ten home games that would be part of an NFL team's temporary stay in Pasadena.

The Pasadena City Council has ensured that the Rose Bowl could serve as a temporary site for an NFL team in Los Angeles until a modern stadium project is completed.ssues, so having the Rose Bowl in place for an NFL relocation could make a huge difference in terms of generating momentum for the completion of a stadium project.
