LA Chargers’ New Stadium Can’t Hold A Crowd as Big as Temple’s Championship Game
Being originally from Los Angeles, I was very happy to see that the San Diego Chargers are relocating to Los Angeles, California. Finally, a football team for the City of Angels! Except there's one problem. The crowd capacity for the new stadium isn't even big enough to hold crowd numbers for the 5A Division I Football Championship that Temple High School played in.
Let's look at the numbers:
StubHub Center in Carson, CA will be the home for the L.A. Chargers. It has a 30,000 max capacity.
The Championship Game in which Temple High played Highland Park had 35,089 in attendance. If we used the LA stadium, we wouldn't have gotten all of our fans out on the bleachers!
Texas High School Football can honestly claim that Texas High School football programs wins the attendance battle over a National Football League franchise.
The Championship Game in which Temple High played Highland Park had 35,089 in attendance.
There were two other Championship games that had more in attendance than the capacity of the Los Angeles stadium.
- 6A Division I: Lake Travis vs. The Woodlands (30,013 in attendance)
- 5A Division I: Highland Park vs. Temple (35,089 in attendance)
- 6A Division II: DeSoto vs. Cibolo Steele (40,318 in attendance)
