The Chargers, who have played in San Diego for 55 seasons, announced the filing Monday night.

In a video posted on the team’s website, chairman Dean Spanos blamed “the inability of the city at the political level to get any kind of public funding or any kind of vote to help subsidize a stadium.”

The Chargers walked away from negotiations with the city and county in mid-June.
