While the Chargers won't be leaving town next season, what they do beyond that is completely up in the air. Amid speculation that the team could be headed for a move to Los Angeles, the Bolts recently said that they will not opt of their contract with Qualcomm Stadium in 2011, but the organization refused to make any commitment past that year. The Bolts have been attempting to get a new stadium built in downtown San Diego for years, but they have not been able to build sufficient support behind the project, which could require upward of $450 million worth of public funding. The way we hear it, what could make or break the team's future in San Diego is the placement of a measure regarding public funding on the ballot in the November 2012 elections. If this measure does not make it onto the ballot, the chances of the Chargers finding a new home in a different city would increase considerably.
