Anaheim City Council approves Angels’ stadium lease extension

The Los Angeles Angels have been granted another year on their lease to play at Angel Stadium following a vote by the City of Anaheim council.

The MLB team will play at the venue through the 2020 season but it remains unclear if the Angels will remain in Anaheim beyond that. The team are exploring other stadium sites throughout Southern California.

“It is clear to me that the team’s priority is to stay in Anaheim,” Mayor Harry Sidhu said in a statement. “We need a plan to make that happen, and we need time to make that happen. This will give us time to find a deal that benefits our residents, with a goal of keeping baseball in Anaheim for another 50 years or more.”
