The Chargers are looking at a new downtown San Diego stadium site a few blocks east of Petco Park, team special counsel Mark Fabiani told a Rotary Club gathering this morning, according to local PR pro Jan Percival who posted the information on her Twitter account.
Percival also relayed the following information:
- Fabiani told the group that the site involves the city, county and private interests and would need to incorporate the Wonder Bread building at 147 14th Street.
- The Chargers met with San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders on Tuesday evening and also discussed the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal site, which would require involvement from a reluctant Port District.
I have a call in to the Mayor’s Office and an appointment to speak with Fabiani this afternoon. More coming and in the meantime here’s some stadium background.
