The Los Angeles Chargers announced Monday that a 14-acre property in El Segundo would house the team’s new corporate headquarters and training complex, with building set to begin in spring 2024. The main structure will be over 145,000 square feet in size, with a design that prioritizes player efficiency and circulation between locations, including direct access to fields from all coaching and player facilities. There will also be a rooftop hospitality club, comprehensive eSports gaming and production studios, and a 3,100 square foot media center within the venue. The new facility will be built by Continental Development Corporation and Mars Ventures, Inc., with Gensler Sports designing the project.
Los Angeles Chargers new headquarters features
“We didn’t leave any stone unturned in our hunt for a place to develop our football and business operations centre.” This process dragged on for more than four years because we refused to accept defeat. It wasn’t going to be good enough. “We wanted outstanding, and we finally found it,” stated Dean Spanos, owner and chairman of the board, in a news release. The grounds outside the main complex will have three natural grass fields with an artificial turf surround, all of which can be watched from a 7,600 square foot elevated outdoor terrace space, another 3,400 square foot elevated outdoor turf area, and a two-lane lap pool for player rehabilitation, bleacher seating designed to accommodate more than 5,000 people, and 348 on-site parking spaces and accommodations available for offsite parking.
“The Chargers’ objective is to become the NFL’s standard of excellence.” “Our organization’s dedication to that quality is demonstrated by this new facility,” stated Head Coach Brandon Staley in the statement. The Chargers’ new headquarters will be seven miles from SoFi Stadium, a $5 billion sports and entertainment complex shared by the club and the Los Angeles Rams. SoFi is the centerpiece of Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s 298-acre Hollywood Park development project.
