After a month of meetings, the San Diego Chargers announced Tuesday that they have arrived at a decision on where to locate a new NFL stadium: downtown San Diego.

The team will pursue a multi-use facility and convention center expansion in downtown San Diego through the citizens’ initiative process, rather than build a new stadium in Mission Valley, the current site of Qualcomm Stadium.

“The multi-use facility, when combined with Petco Park, the existing Convention Center, the Gaslamp Quarter, and a revitalized East Village, would create an unparalleled entertainment and sports district that will host Super Bowls and will ideally be a permanent home for Comic-Con and a Comic-Con museum,” the team said in a prepared statement.
