SAN DIEGO — San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer spoke by telephone with National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell Monday to outline efforts by the city and county to build a new stadium for the Chargers, the mayor’s office said.
“The mayor discussed the actions San Diego has and continues to take toward a new stadium, and expressed his commitment to moving forward with a fair plan that meets the needs of the community and the team,” said mayoral spokesman Matt Awbrey in a statement. “The telephone conversation lasted about 45 minutes.”
The discussion came after negotiations between the city, county and Chargers broke off in acrimony last week when team officials rejected a proposed timeline for conducting environmental studies of the proposed stadium site in Mission Valley.
Faulconer held a news conference to say he would take San Diego’s case for keeping the team directly to the NFL.
