Sources: Chargers plan to announce move from San Diego to Los Angeles

The Chargers plan to announce as early as Thursday that they are moving to Los Angeles, ending a 55-year stint with San Diego and returning to their birthplace, league sources said Wednesday.

The Chargers played their inaugural season in Los Angeles in 1960 before moving to San Diego in 1961.

The Chargers have notified NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and other league owners of their intent to move to Los Angeles for the 2017 season, sources said.

But as one league source cautioned Wednesday night, Chargers chairman Dean Spanos had yet to send a formal relocation letter to the NFL or notify public officials in Los Angeles or San Diego of the team's move, or even tell the members of the San Diego organization about his plans. The source insisted nothing is final.

Chargers to Relocate to Los Angeles

Dean Spanos, Chairman of the Chargers, announced this morning that the team is relocating to Los Angeles and will begin the 2017 NFL season as the Los Angeles Chargers.

As this announcement was made by Spanos, the team launched www.FightforLA.com, a website that allows fans to place a fully refundable $100 deposit on season tickets for the 2017 season. Current Chargers Season Ticket Members will maintain their priority status and are not required to make a deposit.

THIS ISN'T ANY CITY. THIS IS LOS ANGELES.

LA IS PEOPLE AND PLACES AND PASSION AND PRIDE.
ANY RESPECT GIVEN, MUST BE EARNED.

YOU SHOW UP WITH A DREAM.
THEN WORK HARD TO MAKE IT COME TRUE.

SO, WE FIGHT.
EVERY PRACTICE.
EVERY PLAY.
EVERY SINGLE INCH.
ON EVERY FIELD.
IN EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD.
FOR ALL OF LA.

WE WEAR LA ON OUR CHEST.
WE FIGHT FOR IT WITH OUR HEART.

FIGHT FOR LA.

Chargers to Relocate to Los Angeles

“We have a plan in place,” Spanos said. “There’s a tremendous amount of competition. My plan right now is to get ingratiated in the community. We want to be part of L.A.”

“I’m human like anybody else,” said Spanos, who plans to live in Los Angeles. “I have emotions. I’ve lived half my life there [in San Diego], and we were a significant part of that community not only on the field but off the field. It’s the emotion of the fans. To be expected.”

Spanos planned to attend a Kings game Thursday night, and meet Friday with L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, followed by a welcome dinner hosted by Lakers co-owner and President Jeanie Buss.

STATEMENT: MAYOR GARCETTI ON CHARGERS MOVING TO LOS ANGELES

“Los Angeles is one of the world’s great sports towns. Championship teams and iconic athletes aren’t just memories here — they are legends woven into the fabric of our history. Today, we welcome an important part of that history back with the Chargers returning to Los Angeles.

“L.A. already has more visitors than ever before. The Chargers will make our NFL tradition even richer, and give sports fans everywhere one more reason to be in Los Angeles. I congratulate Dean Spanos and the entire Chargers organization, and look forward to the extraordinary contributions they will make to our entire region.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti

Dean Spanos feels moving Chargers to LA was only choice

“There’s regret in not being able to come to a solution that would have kept us in San Diego, absolutely,” Spanos said. “But at the same time, there’s an incredible opportunity for us in Los Angeles. It’s going to be a challenge, it’s up to us to compete and take advantage and put a product on the field Los Angeles can be proud of. But we are up to that challenge and my family and I are incredibly excited about getting started.”

“Nobody wants that,” Spanos said.

“I’d given it 15 years,” Spanos said. “There was so much uncertainty, so many unknowns on three different public funding sources that all would have been subject to a vote. At then end of the day, there were too many obstacles to overcome.”

“There’s resolution. There’s certainty. There’s approval.” Spanos said.

“And there’s peace of mind in that,” Spanos said.

“We have a plan in place we believe in. ” Spanos said. “It will be a process. There will be difficulties. We understand everything has to be earned and not given. But we also know if we put a good team on the field and give Los Angeles a product to be proud of, we will succeed.

“And it’s not just on the field. My family and I can’t wait to become part of the community. The whole family is coming down, and we’re so excited about becoming Angelenos. It’s an exciting time. It’ll be competitive. We understand that and accept it. We’ll have to fight hard for everything we get. But that’s exactly what we plan to do.”

FAA approves Inglewood stadium that Rams, Chargers will share

The $2.6 billion stadium the Rams and Chargers will share in Inglewood took another step forward Friday when the Federal Aviation Administration approved the project after a lengthy review.

The agency had been concerned the structure — the centerpiece of Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s 298-acre sports and entertainment district — could interfere with radar at nearby Los Angeles International Airport.

As part of a long-expected deal with the FAA, the developers will pay $29 million to install a secondary radar system at LAX to resolve the issue.

“As a result of the agreement, the FAA is able to issue a determination that the stadium will not pose a hazard to navigable airspace or affect the flow of aircraft into LAX,” the agency said in a statement.

LA 2024 could announce Opening and Closing Ceremonies plans for Inglewood stadium next week

Los Angeles 2024 officials could formally announce as early as next week their opening and closing ceremonies plans for the $2.66 billion stadium being built in Inglewood by Rams owner Stan Kroenke.

LA 2024 officials will submit their venue plan to the Los Angeles City Council before filing Stage III documents with the International Olympic Committee Feb. 3.

A Los Angeles City Council committee on the Los Angeles bid approved a memorandum of understanding between the city and the bid committee requires Los Angeles city approval of venue changes outside the city. The full council is expected to approve the MOU next week.

L.A. organizers propose linked, simultaneous Olympic ceremonies for Coliseum, Inglewood stadium

As LA 2024 officials finalize their bid to bring the Summer Olympics back to Southern California, they have faced a difficult choice regarding the location of the opening and closing ceremonies.

The Coliseum offers a sense of history and has the backing of L.A. City Council members eager to keep the Games’ premiere events within city limits.

In documents to be submitted to the International Olympic Committee early next month, bid leaders describe simultaneous, linked ceremonies that begin at one venue and conclude at the other.

“Hosting Olympic ceremonies across two stadiums has never been done,” Gene Sykes, the chief executive of LA 2024, said in a statement. “But L.A.’s wealth of stadiums and technology mean we can think about ‘What's next?’ instead of just asking what has been done before.”
