The Los Angeles Chargers of the National Football League (NFL) recently celebrated the one year since the construction of their new practice facility in El Segundo, California. The facility is situated on 14 acres immediately east of El Segundo Boulevard.
The 145,000 square foot building will include a performance centre and office for players, coaches, and staff. Additionally, it will feature a rooftop hospitality club, comprehensive eSports gaming and production studios. There will also be a 3,100 square foot media hub. Construction is expected to be completed in 2024.
A 3,400-square-foot elevated turf area, a two-lane lap pool, and three natural grass fields with seating for 5,000 spectators will also be available outside the main building. There will be space for about 350 cars to park.
The Chargers have been operating out of a temporary training facility in Costa Mesa since leaving San Diego before the 2017 season. Their new home is just seven miles from Inglewood’s 70,000-seat SoFi Stadium. The SoFi stadium is home of the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams and the San Diego Chargers.
When the Chargers’ new training facility debuts, there will be a large crowd there. It is located close to the practice facilities of the Kings (hockey), Lakers (basketball), and Sparks (basketball), three other major Los Angeles-based sports teams.

The Chargers intend to hold a function there during the 2024 draught. It will relocate all of their operations before training camp, which is three months later.
“A building is now present. The only thing we saw at the groundbreaking a year ago were dirt mounds. When that happened, we were just beginning to grade the site and move some dirt around,” said Abraham Garcia, the Chargers’ director of project management, in a press release.
