Meet the Los Angeles Chargers. The San Diego Chargers and the newly re-named Los Angeles Rams team have agreed to share the NFL Stadium in Inglewood. The Chargers had until March to reach an agreement with the Rams to join the expensive Inglewood project in 2019.
The Chargers could join the Rams playing at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum this season. However, they haven’t made an official announcement yet.
The Chargers were last known as the Chargers in 1960. They moved to the San Diego the next year and was there until this announcement.
Dean Spanos, who is the Chargers chairman, will now have to decide if he’ll spur the San Diego officials. The Chargers were the first to sign relocation papers before they were do.
Spanos and Stan Kroenke, the owner of the Rams, have to put their bad relationship aside for their two franchises. The NFL originally voted for Kroenke’s project over Spanos’ following a silent vote.
Going into the voting, the other owners said that they were going to vote for Spanos’ project. However, since it went to a silent vote, he doesn’t know who actually voted for Kroenke’s project.
He may never know, too.
Earlier this month when the NFL voted to allow the Rams to move to Los Angeles — where they haven’t been since 1994 — gave the Chargers to right to join them. After meeting between the two teams, the NFL will have another revenue-sharing team at the Inglewood stadium, which is expected to be used for more than just football.
The Chargers had until January of 2017 to accept the option to move to Los Angeles. Their original plans were to buy a privately-funded stadium in Carson, Ca., according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
