Ticket prices are not dependent on "home"/"visitor" side of the field.
Ticket prices are based upon which level/concourse of the stadium you are sitting on

(i.e. all Field level ticket prices are the same, Plaza level ticket prices are the same, lower view ticket prices are the same, etc)

The types of tickets that have a variable price categories is the Club level, but that is dependent on proximity to the 50 yard line, not on which side of the field.

Hope this helps.

OK, here we go.

As sold by the Chargers, ticket prices are the same regardless of what side of the field you're on. For Field, Plaza, Loge, and Press, the price is the same for any seat - seats in the end zone cost as much as seats on the sidelines.

In the View section, seats on the sidelines are more expensive than seats looking over the end-zone, and then those in upper view (ie row 19 and up, over on either end of the score board) are cheaper still. No difference in price between the 'home' and 'away' sides, though.

Now, when reselling tickets, home-side tickets are generally a bit more valuable/more expensive, because there is more demand for them. This is due mainly to two things:

1) Generally there will always be more demand for 'home' side tickets to any sporting event: fans of a team will usually prefer to sit on that team's side, and there is a larger number of people who live locally and are interested in going to the game (and are more than likely Chargers fans) than there are people who would travel from farther away (and would just as [or more!] likely be fans of the opposing team as fans of the Chargers).

2) At Qualcomm, the home side is also the shady side of the stadium. It gets very hot in Southern California, especially when you're in the sun. If, at a 1:00PM game in what amounts to summer weather (August and September routinely see temperatures in the 90s), you had to choose between sitting in the sun for 3-4 hours and sitting in the shade for the same amount of time, you'd likely choose the shade, because it is more comfortable.

So, there you have it. Hope that clarifies things for you.

More supply. Visiting side mid field tix R available for season tix. Probably B available 4 single game purchase this year. Fans think this is like HS where each school has a sideline.
