(CBS) – The San Diego Chargers will play the 2012 season at Qualcomm stadium in San Diego as city officials continue to work with the team to find a stadium solution.

Statement from San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders and Chargers owner Dean Spanos:

“The city of San Diego and the Chargers continue to work closely together to explore publicly acceptable ways to build a Super Bowl-quality stadium on the bus maintenance yard site in the East Village of downtown San Diego. To give the ongoing process every chance to succeed, the Chargers have announced that the team will not trigger the lease’s termination clause in 2012. Both the Mayor’s office and the Chargers look forward to continuing their joint efforts to build a multi-use stadium that will benefit the entire region. “
