A week removed from their season-opening victory at Cincinnati, the Los Angeles Chargers will open their new SoFi Stadium home against the reigning Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The game will officially kick at 1:25 pm on CBS with Jim Nantz, Tony Romo and Tracy Wolfson on the call. The game is also available on the Chargers App, ALT 98.7 FM and in Spanish on KBUA 105.5 / KBUE 94.3 FM.
BOLT ACADEMY GETS A BOOST FROM SOFI
Starting this Sunday, the Chargers and SoFi, the digital personal finance company, are pledging to make It's Good, for Good. For every successful field goal and PAT scored by the Bolts at SoFi Stadium during the 2020 NFL season, SoFi will donate $1,000 to Brotherhood Crusade to help fund financial literacy resources and tools for The Bolt Academy program. Created by Brotherhood Crusade – a 50-year-old grassroots organization dedicated to addressing the unmet needs of low-income, underserved, under-represented and disenfranchised individuals in South Los Angeles – and the Chargers Impact Fund, Bolt Academy will be a career training and leadership development program that will provide opportunities to work for the Chargers on game days at SoFi Stadium in 2021.

STAY SAFE, STAY HOME, STOP THE SPREAD
After waiting years for this moment, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Chargers fans will be unable to attend the Bolts' SoFi Stadium home opener against the Chiefs. In order to get to a point where the team can safely welcome fans into its new home, the Chargers organization is urging our community to stay the course to get through this pandemic – wear a mask, wash your hands and continue to practice social distancing.
To ensure the health and safety of players, coaches, support staff and that of the greater Los Angeles community, SoFi Stadium and its surrounding area is closed to the public. In accordance with LA County Health Guidelines, gatherings are prohibited. As such, fans are reminded to please not assemble at or around the stadium on gameday. The more we can stop the spread, the sooner SoFi Stadium can open its doors to fans.
