While there are rumors a team could move to Los Angeles as soon as 2015, it will not be the San Diego Chargers.

On Tuesday Mark Fabini released a statement saying that the team was committed to staying in San Diego rather than exercise their termination clause with the city of San Diego and Qualcomm Stadium.

On February 1st of every year since 2007, the Chargers have been eligible to terminate the team’s lease for Qualcomm Stadium. And each year since 2007, the Chargers have announced that the team will not exercise the termination clause and instead continue to work toward a permanent stadium solution in San Diego.

Today, the Chargers are making the same announcement that the team has made each year since 2007: The team will not be exercising the lease termination clause and will keep working to find a publicly acceptable way to build a Super-Bowl quality stadium in San Diego. Calendar year 2015 will constitute the team’s fourteenth year of work on a San Diego stadium solution.
