The Chargers and the Rams are set to share a new stadium in Los Angeles, which was supposed to be ready for the 2019 season. However, according to Adam Wells of the Bleacher Report, "developers determined they wouldn't be able to make the planned 2019 opening due to massive rainfall during the mass excavation portion of the construction."

Ricky Henne, from chargers.com, mentioned that "the six-month timeframe from October 2016 through April alone produced 120 percent the amount of rain for a typical year."

This means that the fans will have to be patient. Until the stadium is fully ready, the Rams, who relocated from St. Louis ahead of last season, will keep playing in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for the next three seasons. 

The situation is clearly not ideal for the Chargers: they will have to play their home games in the StubHub Center, "which currently seats less than 30,000" according to TSN.
