The Chargers will spend at least another year in San Diego.
Chargers owner Dean Spanos announced Friday afternoon that the team remain here for the 2016 season and, he hopes, over the long haul with a new stadium.
“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,” Spanos wrote in a letter to Chargers fans. “This has been our home for 55 years, and I want to keep the team here and provide the world-class stadium experience you deserve.”
Mayor Kevin Faulconer and County Supervisor Ron Roberts quickly responded with a statement.
