“We don’t want to share with the Rams”

Starting next season, the Chargers and Rams are going to be playing in the same stadium, much in the same way as the New York Jets and New York Giants.

SoFi Stadium will open and be ready for play in 2020. A beautiful complex, the stadium has already secured a Super Bowl, a College Football National Championship and the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2028 Olympics.

The Rams were the first team to relocate to Los Angeles and as a result, many see this as their stadium, even though the teams will share it. The Chargers will have to pay rent (even though that fee is only $1) per the agreement, and many Chargers fans don’t want to share the stadium.

Chargers fans would likely be fine with the Rams playing in SoFi Stadium and they just keep their home games at Dignity Health Sports Complex, which holds less than 30,000 fans.

This is due to the fact that the Chargers are perceived by many to be the red-headed stepchildren in the City of Angels. The other teams in the market were mentioned before, but by and large, many of the sports fans in L.A. could take or leave the Chargers. They are just kind of there.
