Wickersham, citing sources, tweeted Wednesday: “A major discussion topic among NFL owners/executives at this week’s league meetings is the Chargers’ viability in LA. PSL sales have been a struggle and team is expected to revise its Inglewood revenue goals sharply to a more realistic number: $400m to around $150m, per sources.”
Wickersham followed up on his tweet by noting that the subject was “a topic of private conversations” and “there hasn’t been a formal presentation on it this week.”
After years of trying to get a new stadium built in San Diego, the Chargers packed up and moved to Los Angeles following the 2016 season. The team joined the Rams, who had moved to Los Angeles the previous year after 20-plus years in St. Louis.
Under an agreement made between the teams, the Bolts and Rams will be co-tenants in a new stadium in Inglewood that’s scheduled to open in 2020 at the earliest.
