About the San Diego Chargers:
The San Diego Chargers, purchased by construction leader and real estate developer Alex G. Spanos in 1984, originated as the Los Angeles Chargers of the American Football League in 1960. The team relocated to San Diego in 1961 and captured the American Football League championship in 1963. The Chargers joined the National Football League in 1970 as part of the AFL-NFL merger. Since 1970, the Chargers have won 10 AFC West division titles, including five titles in the last nine seasons. The team has played in 26 playoff games. In 1994 under the guidance of Spanos’ eldest son Dean, now the team’s Chairman of the Board-President, the Chargers won the AFC Championship and played in Super Bowl XXIX. The Chargers are Southern California’s only NFL franchise and all Chargers games are annually the highest-rated telecasts in San Diego. The Chargers play their home games at Qualcomm Stadium and the Spanos family has invested millions of dollars in its efforts to secure a new Super Bowl-quality stadium for San Diego. The Spanos family also is nationally renowned as one of San Diego’s and the NFL’s most philanthropic families.
