Representatives from the Chargers and the city of Chula Vista are scheduled to meet tomorrow morning at 9:30 at Chargers Park, marking the first meeting between the county’s second largest city and the team in its quest for a new football stadium.

Chula Vista has been the most eager to meet with the team since the San Diego City Council voted earlier this month to allow the team to negotiate with parties outside of the city, but inside the county. There remain large undeveloped tracks of land in Chula Vista that are owned by a residential homebuilder, HomFed Corp., that is interested in speaking with the Chargers as well.

The team last week met with two county supervisors, who appear from their public comments to be most interested in housing any new stadium at the existing Qualcomm Stadium site in Mission Valley. The team can begin speaking with groups and cities outside of San Diego County on Jan. 1.
