The new NFL stadium being built for the Rams and Chargers in Inglewood, CA already has 155 Google reviews but it's not slated to open until the summer of 2020.

Looks like some NFL fans are entertaining themselves by spamming the listing long before it opens.

Here are some examples:

Have you reported this to GMB via Twitter, Facebook, or their forum?

Google generally seems to be pretty good about this type of issue when alerted.

Probably is an issue with all sports team stadiums. Just gets highlighted at finals/playoff season.

Google removed the listing for a few reasons.
1. The stadium is not technically a business, it is a POI.
2. It is far from even being open :p

Thanks!

Wouldn't they want the POI on the map for Google Maps directions?

I am sure they would but somehow they were added as a GMB entry versus a Maps entry.

I didn't know there was a difference. What is the difference?
