The Edward Jones Dome is a 66,000 seat football stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, and home of the St. Louis Rams of the NFL. It was constructed largely to lure an NFL team back to St. Louis, and to serve as a convention center. Completed in 1995, it was known as the Trans World Dome, after Trans World Airlines, until 2001, when TWA was acquired by American Airlines. The facility was then briefly known as the Dome at America's Center (America's Center being the adjacent convention facility) until the naming rights were acquired on January 25, 2002 by Edward Jones Investments, a brokerage house based in St. Louis.
