Chargers won’t play in LA Coliseum despite relocation

The San Diego Chargers will be relocating to Los Angeles and they already have an agreement in place for their new home stadium.

When the move was first announced, there was speculation on whether they would be joining the Los Angeles Rams by playing at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, home of the USC Trojans.

Well, that will not be the case.

According to a report from USA TODAY, the Chargers have reached an agreement with StubHub Center — home of the MLS’ Los Angeles Galaxy — for the next two years. The StubHub Center is located in Carson, Calif. on the California State University campus.

From the report:

As part of their relocation plan for Los Angeles, the San Diego Chargers have an agreement to play at the StubHub Center in nearby Carson for the next two seasons before moving into their permanent new home in Inglewood with the Los Angeles Rams, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports late Wednesday.

Following the 2018-19 NFL season, the Chargers and Rams will then move into and share their $new 2.7 billion stadium in Inglewood.
