The San Diego Chargers have reportedly canceled their San Diego, Calif. lease. They terminated their $12.575 million relationship on the first day that they were able to do so.

They wired the money — and it ended the partnership between the Chargers and Qualcomm Stadium, where they have played since 1961. The Chargers moved to Los Angeles, Calif. in the off-season and will be known as the Los Angeles Chargers.

There were four-years remaining on the lease at the time of the termination.

The Chargers will be the second team in the Los Angeles, Calif. market, joining the Los Angeles Rams. Instead of joining the Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Chargers will play the next two seasons at the StubHub Center.

They are going to be playing at an undersized soccer stadium that seats less than 30,000 people in Carson, Calif. They’ll have to deal with the circumstances that are presented to them until they wait for Rams owner Stan Kroenke‘s state-of-the-arm stadium is built in Inglewood in 2019.
