The Los Angeles Rams have found a new temporary training ground in Southern California.

The team on Wednesday announced an agreement with California Lutheran University to allow the club to base its training operations at the school's Thousand Oaks, campus for at least two years.

The Rams will pay for the installation of two practice fields, a paved parking lot and building space for offices, training areas and locker rooms on campus. The team has an option to settle at Cal Lutheran for up to five years while waiting for a permanent facility to be built.

"We are excited to partner with Cal Lutheran to use their exceptional campus as the temporary home for team facilities that will be outstanding for our players and football staff," said team COO and executive VP Kevin Demoff. "The Rams look forward to becoming an integral part of the Cal Lutheran and Thousand Oaks communities as we establish our roots in Southern California."

Said Cal Lutheran president Chris Kimball: "We are thrilled to be part of the return of the Rams and NFL football to Los Angeles. The Rams are investing in a major remaining part of our plans for the north campus and providing internships in a variety of fields to our students. It will be a great partnership."

Cal Lutheran is no stranger to the NFL after hosting training camp for the Dallas Cowboys from 1963 to 1989. In recent years, the 2008 and 2012 U.S. Olympic men's water polo teams trained on campus, while USA Team Handball, Los Angeles Lightning basketball and the Conejo Oaks collegiate summer baseball team have also held events on the grounds.
