SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Chargers will be staying at Qualcomm Stadium for at least another year.
Mark Fabiani, special counsel to Chargers President Dean Spanos, said in a statement Tuesday night that the team will not exercise its lease termination clause before next season and will continue to work to get a new facility built in San Diego. He noted that 2015 will be the team's 14th year working to get a new stadium in San Diego.
The Chargers have announced their return each year since 2007. The team says they need a new stadium to stay financially competitive with other franchises.
The announcement is a blow to the NFL hopes of Los Angeles, which is looking to lure a team back to the city.
