Chargers finalize deal to hold training camp in Costa Mesa
LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers have finalized a deal to hold the first training camp after their move north in Costa Mesa.
The Chargers announced their plans Tuesday night after the Orange County town approved the proposal in a city council vote.
The Chargers will train at Jack Hammett Sports Complex, which is only about 2 miles from the planned site of their regular-season base in Costa Mesa.
The team can use the facility for three to five weeks per year for up to 10 years. The Chargers agreed to make an estimated $1 million in improvements to the complex while paying $150,000 in annual rent.
The Los Angeles Rams held training camp last year at UC Irvine, about 5 miles away.
