Raiders, Chargers file paperwork for vote on LA stadium plan

The Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers have filed paperwork with the city of Carson, Calif., that would put their plan to build a football stadium in the Los Angeles suburb up for a public vote.

The teams’ proposal for a $1.7 billion joint stadium would require the modification of zoning laws in Carson.

St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke has proposed a $1.7 billion stadium project in nearby Inglewood, even as St. Louis tries to keep the Rams with plans for a new riverfront stadium.

A move by the Chargers and the Raiders to the Los Angeles area would likely preclude a similar move by the Rams, as Southern California is not believed to be a market that would house three NFL teams.

No team will play in Los Angeles in 2015. Per NFL rules, 75 percent of the league’s owners must approve relocation by any team.
