Los Angeles Chargers 2017 Team Preview and Prediction – Los Angeles Chargers News

After years of posturing and threats, the Chargers finally pulled the plug on San Diego after 56 seasons and moved to the Los Angeles area because voters said no to a large subsidy to replace aging Qualcomm Stadium. They leave behind what had been a loyal fan base and enter an already crowded market where fans are known to be fickle and demand a winning product. 

 

Technically, the Chargers won’t be in L.A.; their headquarters will be in Costa Mesa in Orange County, and they’ll play for two seasons in a 30,000-seat soccer stadium in Carson before moving into the stadium that Rams owner Stan Kroenke is building in Inglewood. They’ll have a new coach, Anthony Lynn, as they try to regroup after winning only nine games the last two years. Unless they win right away, they could struggle for attention in a vast market where the most popular teams are the Dodgers, Lakers, USC football, UCLA basketball, the Kings, Clippers, Rams, Ducks and Angels.
