Digging at the site is expected to start in the Fall with kick-off set for the 2019 season. 

After the Charger's bid to move to Carson, in Los Angeles County, was rejected by fellow National Football League owners, Chargers Chairman Dean Spanos said he would try one more time to build a stadium in San Diego.

Spanos also said he's hiring a legal team to draft an initiative and a land-use team to develop a site.
