August 11, 2015 (San Diego)--The San Diego Chargers will pay tribute to Chargers and San Diego icon and Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Junior Seau prior to the team’s regular-season home opener against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Sept. 13.  The tribute will take place prior to kickoff on the 50-yard line at Qualcomm Stadium and will feature a special video followed by an address from Seau’s daughter Sydney.


The opener on Sept. 13 also will be “White Hot Sunday” and the team is urging fans to unite in white as they’ve done the past three seasons for the season opener and wear white.  The team will be wearing white pants and white jerseys together for the fourth year in a row at the home opener.
