Spanos ceded control of the team in May 2015 to his sons, John and A.G., though he stayed on as chairman to oversee a failed new stadium process. After a proposed ballot measure for a hotel tax-financed stadium plan in downtown San Diego failed in November 2016 with only 43 percent approval, the Chargers weighed their option to return to the Los Angeles market.
In January 2017, Spanos exercised the option to relocate the team to Los Angeles. The move was met with criticism by San Diego due to not being able to find a stadium solution in the city, despite 15 years of failed proposals blocked by city officials and business leaders.
The team’s temporary headquarters is currently in Costa Mesa under a 10-year lease until a permanent location in the Los Angeles area is acquired. The 2017 through 2019 seasons were played at a soccer stadium, Dignity Health Sports Park (known as StubHub Center until 2019).
In 2020, construction was completed on the Chargers’ new stadium, SoFi Stadium, which is shared with the Los Angeles Rams. The venue is owned and operated by StadCo LA, LLC., a joint partnership with Kroenke Sports & Entertainment and the Los Angeles Chargers.
Dean Spanos is married to Susie Dean Spanos and they have two children.
