Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of Disney, will be responsible for hiring the president of the company formed to bring the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders to Carson, California.
Carson Holdings, a joint venture formed this year by the Chargers and Raiders, named Iger its non-executive chairman.
"Should the owners approve the move, Los Angeles will proudly welcome two incredible teams to our community and build a stadium worthy of their fans," Iger said in a statement. "LA football fans will enjoy unprecedented access to games during the season, in a state of the art stadium designed to deliver the most entertaining, exciting and enjoyable experience possible."
The stadium, should it be built, will be constructed by the city of Carson and leased by the teams through Carson Holdings.
