History Of Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers were established in Los Angeles in 1959. Becoming a member of the AFL in 1960, the club finished as Western Champions before their loss to the Oilers for the AFL Championship.
The following year saw the Chargers swap LA for San Diego. A similar season followed, with the Chargers once more becoming Western Champions. Again, though, defeat to Houston Oilers followed in the AFL Championship game.
Success was only round the corner, with an AFL Championship win over the Patriots in 1963. To date, the Chargers have one AFL Championship and three NFL titles to their name.
The Chargers made their first, and to date only, Super Bowl appearance in 1994. After a narrow victory against the Dolphins in the Divisional playoffs, the Chargers then met the Steelers. A 17-13 win saw the Chargers win the AFC Championship and with it a place in Super Bowl XXIX.
Up against the 49ers, the San Diego side suffered a 49-26 defeat. Since then, the Chargers have made eight playoff appearances. The hope is that the 2019 season will see Anthony Lynn’s side make a long-awaited return to Super Bowl action.
The franchise returned to LA in 2017. The Chargers’ overall record, up to the start of the 2019 campaign, shows 459 wins, 460 losses, and 11 ties.
The Los Angeles Chargers were formed in 1959, making their first AFL appearance the following year.
The Chargers have enjoyed numerous successful seasons. The 1994 campaign, which saw the side make their only Super Bowl appearance, must surely go down as the best campaign so far in Chargers history.
