A 68,000-seat sports arena could be the new home for the San Diego Chargers. That is, if it gets voted on. The arena has faced some criticism as taxpayers are expected to fork over roughly a third of the bill to build the stadium. Taxpayers will get to vote on whether or not they want to build the stadium in an upcoming election later this year.
This state of the art stadium hopes to bring in revenue for the city and replace the 1967 San Diego Qualcomm Stadium. If approved, the project is slated to cost $1.2 billion where taxpayers are expected to pay about $350 million with the rest of the cost being forked over by the National Football League and the San Diego Chargers. It will be up to the voters to decide if they are willing to pay for this new stadium.
