Chargers headquarters pelted with eggs after report of team move

Chargers headquarters pelted with eggs after report of team move

However, the report said the official paperwork wasn't filed, and a source said the move wasn't certain.

Now, it looks like the National Football League itself is potentially open to some short-term fix in San Diego while opening the way for the Raiders to move to Las Vegas.

Well, it's official: The San Diego Chargers are now the Los Angeles Chargers, and they'll play their next season in LA.

San Diego could become a tenant in the stadium being built in Inglewood for the Rams if the Chargers exercise that option.

In the letter, Spanos said San Diego will "always be part of our identity", and that he has nothing but gratitude for the fans' support.

San Diego's Fox 5, which was also on the scene, reported the man left before police arrived to order angry fans who had gathered at the team's headquarters to disperse.

Shortly after the news broke about their relocation, the Chargers twitter account swiftly changed their details and their new logo, which still makes use of the original lighting effect, as per the name.

"What the Chargers perhaps don't realize is that Los Angeles already has a football team".

"The experience for our fans at StubHub Center will be fun and entertaining, and every seat will feel close to the action", Chargers president of business operations A.G. Spanos said in a release Thursday.

In a meeting last month with other owners, the typically soft-spoken Spanos surprised everyone when he sadly hinted at his plans for the team to leave San Diego, where he lives with his wife and family. A new $2.6 billion stadium in Inglewood, which will use a relatively small $60 million in public assistance, is slated to be the shared home for the Rams and Chargers, but it won't open until 2019.

The Chargers are moving to Los Angeles for the 2018 season, the franchise announced, after spending 56 years in San Diego.

The Chargers wanted a new stadium in downtown San Diego, but a ballot measure for a new stadium and convention center expansion failed by a vote of 57 percent to 43 percent.

The news that the Chargers are coming to Los Angeles wasn't a surprise to the Rams, but now that it's a reality, it increases the pressure on them to win.
