In a press release issued by Chargers.com:
Home is where the heart is ... and also where the San Diego Chargers will hold training camp beginning next year.
For the first time in its 44-year history, the franchise will hold its four-week summer training camp at its year-round training facility. There was one motivating factor in the decision to move camp to Chargers Park in Murphy Canyon: the fans.
"Bottom line, we don't want there to be any doubt about our commitment to the San Diego community," said Chargers President Dean Spanos. "We had a positive experience the past two years at the Home Depot Center and we're seeing the results of that now. Right now we want to make sure the fans that love to come to training camp have that opportunity."
Chargers Park will be the eighth training camp site in the history of San Diego's team. Most recently, the Chargers held training camp at the Home Depot Center on the campus of Cal-State Dominguez Hills in 2003-04 and, prior to that, camp was held at the University of California at San Diego from 1976-02.
At least 12 other teams join the Chargers in holding their summer training camp at their year-round facility. In addition to the Chargers, other teams include Atlanta, Denver, Detroit, Green Bay, Houston, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Miami, New England, San Francisco, Tennessee and Washington.
