The Broncos are going to play a game in Los Angeles every year. And soon, they also might be playing one game in Las Vegas.

Starting this year, the Denver Broncos are going to make at least one annual trip to Los Angeles.

Starting this year, the Denver Broncos are going to make at least one annual trip to Los Angeles. Chargers owner Dean Spanos announced in a letter Thursday morning that he is moving his team from San Diego to Los Angeles.

The team will begin the 2017 season as the Los Angeles Chargers. Their temporary home will be the StubHub Center, a 30,000-seat venue located on the campus of California State University.

The Chargers, who have played in San Diego since 1961 when they were still an AFL team, will join the Rams in Los Angeles. The Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles last year.

It’s likely the Chargers won’t be the only AFC West team to uproot either.

The Raiders are closing in on a deal to move from Oakland to Las Vegas. NFL executive vice president Eric Grubman said after a meeting in New York on Wednesday that the Raiders have made “impressive” progress on a plan to relocate to Las Vegas, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

If that goes through, the Broncos will play one game in Las Vegas every year in addition to the one they’ll play in Los Angeles. It’s highly possible half of the AFC West is playing in a new city soon.
