LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Carson2gether community group will hold a news conference Friday to discuss the proposed plan to build a joint NFL stadium that would be home to both the Chargers and the Raiders.
The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders released a joint statement Thursday announcing they were moving forward with a back-up plan to share a privately-financed $1.7 billion stadium in Carson.
The teams say they have already purchased the landfill near the 405 Freeway and Del Amo Boulevard and will build the stadium if they are unable to strike stadium deals in their own cities, which both teams have tried to do for years.
