St. Louis Chargers and Oakland Raider Propose Sharing Future Stadium

While the New York Giants and the New York Jets have been sharing the same stadium for several seasons now, two other NFL teams appears to be attempting to call the same roof home as well. The Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers are now planning on sharing a stadium in the upcoming years within the Los Angeles area.

The merger of the two teams appears to stem from the issue that they are having trouble obtaining new stadium deals within their own hometowns. The proposed stadium will cost an estimated 1.7 billion dollars to build and operate and will be located in Carson, an area 15 miles south of the downtown Los Angeles area. The stadium will share the same town as local professional soccer team, the Los Angeles Galaxy.

A statement released Thursday exposed future plans and how the teams have been failing for years to find a home located near their designated hometowns. The official statement read, “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.”

This appears to be an ongoing issue and solution for teams struggling to finalize leases for their current stadiums. The St. Louis Rams, who were placed in a similar situation, have been able to take a step forward with plans of a new stadium.

Former Anheuser-Busch president Dave Peacock had this to say about the Rams new progress, ”Our focus is 100 percent committed to keeping the Rams here in their home of St. Louis and ensuring that we remain an NFL city for generations to come. We are very encouraged and thrilled with the progress we’ve made.”
