The San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raider are still in negotiations over their current locations and they both confirmed that they could share a new stadium in the Los Angeles if they didn’t reach to a solution over current venue.
The Chargers’ owner Alex Spanos and the Raiders’ John J Fisher and Lew Wolff struggled for years to reach deals on new local stadiums, however they showed their readiness to move to Los Angeles, which does not have an NFL team of its own.
“For the remainder of 2015, we intend to move down two tracks simultaneously,” the statement said. “On track one, we will continue to work in our home markets to find permanent stadium solutions that are publicly acceptable.
“On track two, we will work in Carson to preserve our options and the future economic viability of our franchises, in the event that our efforts in our local markets fail,” it added.
if the move happened actually, it would have to be approved by three-quarters of the league’s owners.
as a response to this statement, a group called Carson2gether posted a video on YouTube of the proposed stadium, which the Los Angeles Times reported will cost an estimated $1.7bn and would be built on a 168-acre site.
Now, The Chargers play at Qualcomm Stadium while The Raiders play in the O.co Coliseum.
