San Diego to NFL: We Want Football

San Diego-based developer Douglas Manchester wants the NFL back in San Diego. The chairman of Manchester Financial Group is lobbying the league commissioner, and assembling a powerful “group of associates” in an effort to build a privately financed stadium.

The group is seeking to develop the 166-acre Mission Valley site of Qualcomm Stadium, including a new 70,000-seat stadium, in hopes of enticing the Oakland Raiders to relocate to San Diego, now that the Chargers left for Los Angeles.
