SAN DIEGO (AP) – The San Diego Chargers were paid nearly $3.3 million by the city to play at Qualcomm Stadium from 2006 through 2013, thanks to rent credits and reimbursements from a settlement that made the stadium compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Without the ADA settlement and rent credits, the Chargers would have owed the city nearly $23 million during that span, according to figures provided by the city.
Final figures for the 2014 season haven’t been calculated, but the Chargers stand to again make a profit for playing at the aging stadium they say can no longer sustain them financially.
The Chargers are threatening to move to the Los Angeles area if they don’t get a new stadium.
The last time the city made money from the Chargers was 2006, when it cleared $20,369, according to city figures.
