In 2017, the San Diego Chargers moved 120 kilometres north in search for a new start in Los Angeles. Founded in 1959, the Charges played its first couple years in L.A. before moving to San Diego where they spent the next 55 years. The club captured one AFL Championship in 1963 and went on to win AFC Championship in 1994 — losing to the San Francisco 49ers in the club’s only appearance in a Super Bowl final. The Chargers have also won 15 division crowns — five in the AFL West and 10 in the AFC West, where the club currently plays.
The franchise announced in 2017 it would move back to Los Angeles, where the club originally started. The Chargers became the second team based in L.A., as the Rams also relocated from St. Louis to the City of Angels.
Quarterback Philip Rivers has been the face of the Chargers’ franchise, as the Pro Bowler holds the club’s all-time record in passing yards with 45,000-plus and counting. Rivers’ favorite target over years has been tight end Antonio Gates, whose 897 receptions and 11,192 yards are franchise-best marks. Retired star running back LaDanian Tomlinson is the club’s all-time rushing leader with 12,490 yards.
