    OCEANSIDE -- A San Diego Chargers official said Monday that it could take several cities working together to keep the football team in the county.

    "The ultimate solution could be a regional solution," said Mark Fabiani, the team's lead negotiator for a new stadium,

    Fabiani's comments were part of a wide-ranging interview with the North County Times editorial board Monday in which he discussed the NFL football team's need for a new home and possible ways to finance a $700 million stadium.

    Team officials have said they want to leave aging Qualcomm Stadium in Mission Valley within the next decade for a new state-of-the-art facility. They have also said they want to stay in the county and have identified Chula Vista, National City and Oceanside as potential homes.

    Fabiani said Monday a stadium could be built in one city and paid for with some sort of development elsewhere in the county. The two cities would then share the costs and revenues from the stadium, he said.

    For example, leaders of National City last week discussed the possibility of working with Chula Vista, the city of San Diego and County of San Diego on a partnership to keep the team in the area. National City leaders said Oceanside would not in all likelihood be part of a partnership they form because it would only involve cities that would receive significant costs and benefits from the project.
