NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had concluded that none of the three cities vying to keep their football teams from moving to Los Angles has a viable plan to replace “unsatisfactory and inadequate” stadiums, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.

The Times said Goodell’s conclusion was included in a 48-page report distributed to all 32 teams. The report does not give any team permission to move to Los Angeles, according to the Times, but establishes that their current home markets have failed to provide adequate stadium solutions.

National Football League owners will vote during a special meeting in Houston on Tuesday and Wednesday to decide which, if any teams, can move to Los Angeles.

The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders have proposed a joint stadium in Carson, while St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke is proposing a stadium for his team at the former Hollywood Park racetrack location in Inglewood.

Los Angeles, the nation’s second largest market, has been without its own professional football team for two decades.
