The Chargers plan to announce as early as Thursday that they are moving to Los Angeles, ending a 55-year stint with San Diego and returning to their birthplace, league sources said.
The Chargers played their inaugural season in Los Angeles in 1960 before moving to San Diego in 1961.
The Chargers have notified NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and other league owners, of their intent to move to Los Angeles for the 2017 season, sources said.
Schefter also noted that nothing is official yet, but unless something drastic happens, the Chargers will be moving to L.A.
Los Angeles will now be home to two NFL teams – the Chargers and the Rams, who played their first season in L.A. this past fall.
There will now be two cities with multiple NFL teams – L.A. and New York.
