Los Angeles went 21 seasons without an NFL franchise. Now it appears the city is about to have its second team lined up for arrival.

The San Diego Chargers announced Thursday morning the franchise's relocation to Los Angeles, joining the Rams one year after the team moved from St. Louis.

The move will bring an end to the team's 55-year run in the city. The Chargers first were formed in Los Angeles in 1960 before moving the following season to San Diego.

The Chargers had until next Tuesday to exercise their option for relocation after their deadline was extended.

In November, San Diego voters struck down a ballot measure seeking to fund a new stadium through a hotel tax.
