As would be expected, the Chargers are staying put at Qualcomm Stadium for 2014.
The Chargers announced Wednesday they would not terminate their lease at their home stadium, which is one of the NFL’s oldest.
“The team is continuing to work, as we have for more than a decade, on stadium solutions in San Diego, and we will not be triggering the out clause in our lease in 2014,” Mark Fabiani, special counsel to the club president, told Chargers.com on Wednesday.
Formerly Jack Murphy Stadium, Qualcomm Stadium opened in 1967 and was renovated in 1997.
The Chargers have made it no secret that they would like a new stadium, but the matter of public funding for a project is a potential sticking point.
In the interim, they need a place to play, and while they have the right to terminate their lease early each offseason, they don’t really have anywhere else to go in the short term.
