After 56 years in San Diego, it looks like the Chargers are leaving for Los Angeles. Logistically, there will be a lot to work out, and high up on the to-do list is the matter of where the Chargers will play. The Los Angeles Rams currently call the 90,000-seat Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum home, at least until their shiny new stadium is complete in 2019.
And according to Pro Football Talk, the Chargers will play in a professional soccer stadium for the next two years. Specifically: The 30,000-seat StubHub Center, which serves as the home of MLS’ Los Angeles Galaxy.
As PFT notes, “The StubHub Center gives the Chargers a chance to market a very unique experience, giving fans an intimate environment for watching a pro football game.” That’s one way to spin it but what happens when the Chargers can’t even sell out a 30,000-seat stadium?
