After the Rams announced a few weeks ago that they were leaving St. Louis to call Los Angeles home, the Chargers took the first step in making their bolt from San Diego to L.A. official, with a report from the San Diego Union Tribune announcing that the two teams have agreed to share a new stadium in Inglewood.
Once the Rams move became official, the league gave the Chargers until January 15 of next year to strike a deal with the Rams to share the proposed stadium in Inglewood, which, allegedly, didn’t take too much time to think about.
While no formal details were announced, the agreement doesn’t mean the Chargers are definitely relocating, but it does mean a major hurdle has been resolved, as well as the team’s owner, Dean Spanos, putting pressure on San Diego to meet his stadium demands.
The Chargers have also, reportedly, acquired land for a practice facility in the L.A. area—according to Pro Football Talk, so the team’s agreement with the Rams on the Inglewood stadium may be the final straw.
Of course, this might not be a complete shock to Bolts’ fans after seeing the team change their Snapchat branding by dropping the “San Diego” in it, but I’m sure it’s becoming more realistic now that the team won’t be around much longer.
