  • Inglewood stadium opening delayed until 2020 due to rain....lol

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...en-until-2020/

    My guess is that at some point, the Chargers find some way to come back to SD (with or without new owners) before this stadium is ever even built. I just can't see them surviving in a 30k seat soccer venue for the next 3 years.

    I don't know about financially, but the fan experience in a 30000 seat stadium should be great.

      The seats should be a lot more comfortable there too, given the big chunk that will be missing from your wallet.

        Im honestly looking forward to going to a small venue. Going to games with 30K plus other teams fans got pretty old. Will that change? Maybe not...but i expect it will if we win. But when i have tickets i go win or lose. They dont have to be winning for me to support them. Sort of like Padre fans. lol

        Id love for them to come home though. I just doubt that happens.

          I doubt it changes much. Unles they do so well they want to get into a bigger stadium to capitalize on revenue for year 3. Bit of a bummer. Id think getting in even if midseason would still be a goal.

            It's only money... but lots of it. Chargers will have to host games in London due to this.

            from PFT:
            The new stadium in Inglewood, California to be shared by the Chargers and Rams won’t open until 2020, due to rain-induced construction delays. The biggest loser is the proprietor of the property, since the delay will keep Rams owner Stan Kroenke from getting any return on the $2.6 billion investment (from Rams games, Chargers games, and other events) by a full year.

            The two teams that play there will lose, too. As noted by Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times (via SportsBusiness Daily), the Rams may decide to delay the debut of their new uniforms by a year, coinciding with the opening of the stadium. Instead, the Rams may wear blue helmets with white horns but their current blue, white, and gold jerseys and pants not just for the next two years but for the next three. As noted by Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (via SportsBusiness Daily), the Rams also will be required to host an international game in 2019, under the rule that every team playing in a temporary stadium must play a home game internationally.

            This rule will apply to the Chargers, too. They escaped hosting an international game in 2017 because the teams were picked before the Chargers left San Diego for the 30,000-seat StubHub Center. They’ll have to host games in 2018 and 2019 in London or elsewhere.

            The Chargers, while at their temporary L.A. home, will have little or no home-field advantage for three years instead of two — and they’ll have the diminished revenue that comes from not having a full complement of seats and suites. And there’s now an enhanced chance that franchise quarterback Philip Rivers will never play in the new venue at all.

            The league potentially loses, too, if it decides to waive the two-season requirement before a stadium hosts a Super Bowl — and if any glitches or problems with the stadium during its first year linger into February and diminish the Super Bowl experience. Which is why the NFL has crafted a rule requiring a venue to be in operation for two full years before hosting a Super Bowl.

            So Thursday was a day of bad news all around in L.A., with the end result being that the primary reason for the relocation of both teams won’t be available to be utilized by anyone for a full year longer than previously expected.

              I don't think the small stadium will have much effect on their money situation. I read an article that said they would make money in LA if nobody came to their games.

                Of course they'll make money but this delay will have them losing money they were already counting on...don't think for a second that doesn't burn Deanos ass

                  The one thing I didn't think about that PFT brings up is the chance that PR might not ever throw a pass in the new stadium

                    I've only seen speculation in articles of how they supposedly will make tons of $ in LA no matter what because- LA!!!!. Never any actual breakdown of where it could realistically come from and not even figuring in their costs to relocate and pay the NFL relocation fee, etc. They will likely come out somewhere between small loss and small profit simply because the current TV contract basically pays the entire Salary cap allotment with some leftover, but beyond that Game day revenues and souvenir/team gear sales are the big profit drivers and make good teams in new stadiums the most profitable.
