Two rival NFL teams, the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders, have proposed a plan to join forces on a shared, $1.7 billion stadium in Carson, Calif.

Manica Architecture has released early conceptual renderings for the joint proposal. “We’re thinking of the project as a 21st-century, next-generation stadium,” architect David Manica told the Los Angeles Times. “We want it to be the ultimate outdoor event experience, which includes both sports and entertainment. And we want it to be uniquely L.A.”

In a joint statement released by both teams, they indicate that this effort is an alternative plan if they “cannot find a permanent solution in our home markets.”

According to Variety, Carson is also home to the StubHub Center, home of the L.A. Galaxy Major League Soccer team.

The proposed site is a 168-acre parcel at the southwest quadrant of the intersection of the 405 freeway and Del Amo Boulevard, the Los Angeles Times reports. This will be the first time in almost two decades that L.A. will have any NFL activity, after the Raiders and Rams left the city for Oakland and St Louis, respectively.
