About the San Diego Chargers:
The San Diego Chargers 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 finished first in five of their 10 AFL seasons. Since joining the National Football League when the two leagues merged in 1970, the Chargers have won 11 AFC West division titles. Overall, the team has played in 28 playoff games, including Super Bowl XXIX following the 1994 season. Most recently, over the last 12 seasons (2004-15), the Chargers have won five division titles and had just two losing seasons.
Construction leader and real estate developer Alex G. Spanos purchased the team in 1984 and his son Dean Spanos took over the reins of the team in 1994. Dean’s sons, A.G. and John, were named President-Business Operations and President-Football Operations, respectively, in 2015. The Spanos family is nationally renowned as one of San Diego’s and the NFL’s most philanthropic families. The family has contributed millions of dollars and endless support to deserving civic, social and non-profit organizations. In addition, millions of dollars also have been invested in an effort to secure a modern, Super Bowl-quality stadium for San Diego.
