SAN DIEGO – The National Football League Wednesday released the 2015 regular season schedule for the San Diego Chargers.

The Charger campaign begins at the aging Qualcomm Stadium Sunday, September 13 against the Detriot Lions.

2015 Schedule

The Chargers’ opponents this fall have been known for a while, but not the order or kickoff times. Preseason times were not released Wednesday, although the Chargers know they will be hosting Seahawks and visiting 49ers.

The team will play three home football games in prime time this year, a season that could turn out to be the team’s last in San Diego.

The Chargers have recently made moves to acquire land in the Los Angeles suburb of Carson on which to build a stadium jointly with the Oakland Raiders.

The Chargers, who have been pushing to get a new playing facility built in San Diego for more than a dozen years, will play three of their final four games out of town.

A task force has been studying how to finance a new stadium in San Diego and is due to issue recommendations by May 20. If the Chargers don’t like the plans, they can opt out of their contract with the city to play at Qualcomm Stadium early next year.
