I was under the impression that merely moving to Los Angeles was a guarantee of a sizable jump in team valuation. I believe it was projected to be $3B+ after the move.



This quote is telling: "Our $2.275 billion valuation of the Chargers reflects their move to Inglewood for the 2020 season.." That valuation appears to be the approximately the same as would have been realized with a new stadium in San Diego.



So mere relocation to the LA market wasn't/isn't all it was cracked up to be. Apparently for the Rams it has been, but they had 49 years of prior history in LA metro to tap into.

Rams valuation has spiked because of the new stadium. Same thing would of happen for the Chargers if they stayed in San Diego.

LETS NOT FORGET THOU that Politicians in San Diego played footsie with the franchise for over a decade, or does everyone forget the original offer?

Chargers would foot 100% of the stadium cost but Alex Spanos wanted development rights..... Local Unions rejected that because they didn't want Nor Cal labor coming into the market.

So lets not put all the blame on the Spanos clan for them leaving, (only half LOL).

Rams value went up because they are getting a new stadium that is owned by them. Not because they moved back.
