San Diego Chargers & Oakland Raiders Heading To Carson!?!
Los Angeles has gone without a NFL team since the early 90s and now that’s all about to change since San Diego Chargers & Oakland Raiders Heading To Carson!
CelebNMusic247.com has just learned that the San Diego Chargers & Oakland Raiders time may be up in their cities and they are on the lookout for security so that have partnered up and will jointly pursue a shared, $1.7-billion NFL stadium in Carson as an alternative.
The two teams have been bitter a rivalry as any in the NFL but in a sense, they’re now partners. The official announcement was made on Friday since they have already bought the land to build the stadium.
While the city of Carson is getting two teams, the city of Inglewood may be getting the St. Louis Rams, a team that played for LA back in the day. Rams owner Stan Kroenke, announced in January that he has plans to build an 80,000-seat stadium on the land that used to be Hollywood Park.
It’s a completely new renovation that will increase the value of Inglewood and give jobs. It’s a great fit for the city since there will be a metro rail coming through the area as well.
While the proposal prompts dismay in San Diego, hope in Oakland the Silver & Black and the Powder Blue — the Raiders and Chargers have actually been closer over the years than many people might think.
Chargers President Dean Spanos said, referring to the late Al Davis, legendary owner of the Raiders:
“Al is also a big reason for the strong rivalry between the Raiders and the Chargers and its popularity among both teams’ fans.”
“He personified the image and mystique of the Raiders, and that image has helped build the strength of our rivalries and the popularity of our game. There has been no one in the NFL like Al Davis.”
However, The Chargers and Raiders will continue to seek public subsidies for new stadiums in their home markets, but they are developing a detailed proposal for a privately financed Los Angeles venue in the event they can’t get deals done in San Diego and Oakland by the end of this year, according to the teams.
On Thursday, the Chargers and Raiders said:
“We are pursuing this stadium option in Carson for one straightforward reason: If we cannot find a permanent solution in our home markets, we have no alternative but to preserve other options to guarantee the future economic viability of our franchises.”
The teams are working with “Carson2gether,” a group of business and labor leaders. The coalition will announce the project Friday at a news conference near the 168-acre site, a parcel at the southwest quadrant of the intersection of the 405 Freeway and Del Amo Boulevard.
