San Diego Chargers chairman Dean Spanos said Friday that the team will not leave for Los Angeles this season. He stated the Chargers will remain in San Diego for the 2016 season but has an agreement with the Rams to move to Los Angeles if a long-term stadium solution to remain in the city isn’t worked out.
Spanos delivered the news in a message to Chargers fans posted on the team’s website.
“Today I decided our team will stay in San Diego for the 2016 season and I hope for the long term in a new stadium,” he said.
“I have met with Mayor [Kevin] Faulconer and Supervisor [Ron] Roberts and I look forward to working closely with them and the business community to resolve our stadium dilemma. We have an option and an agreement with the Los Angeles Rams to go to Inglewood in the next year, but my focus is on San Diego.”
