It has been widely reported that the San Diego Chargers will take up an option to relocate to Los Angeles in 2017, almost a year to the day that the St Louis Rams relocated back to the city.
The NFL and other sources are reporting that Chargers will formalise this shortly, ending a 55-year stint in San Diego.
The Chargers played their inaugural season in Los Angeles in 1960 before moving to San Diego in 1961.
What has also been reported is that Chargers chairman Dean Spanos could very well change his mind despite him calling for a meeting to inform all franchise staff that the team will relocate to Los Angeles.
Spanos has kept his cards close to his chest. He has yet to send a formal relocation letter to the NFL, notify public officials in Los Angeles or San Diego of the team’s intentions or tell any staff members about his plans.
