Spanos: Mission Valley not an option for new stadium
Spanos, however, said eliminating Mission Valley from the equation doesn’t make it certain the team will move to Los Angeles if Measure C falls short of the required two-thirds approval, which is likely based on recent polling.

That leaves open the possibility the Chargers would take another shot at downtown if Measure C fails, or the team could explore other potential sites in the city or county.

Spanos said how close Measure C comes to passing could play a role in his decision.

“I think percentage tells me a lot,” he said. “If we only get 30 or 35 percent that tells you one thing. If we get 60 percent that tells you something else. I’m anxious to see what’s going to happen on Nov. 8.”
