San Diego State takes control of SDCCU Stadium

New SDSU Stadium rendering August 2019

San Diego State University is now the proud owner of SDCCU Stadium–the former Qualcomm Stadium–and plans to begin construction of a new 35,000-seat football stadium on the northwest section of the site. 

Construction of the new stadium, which will be formally marked by a groundbreaking August 17, is expected to be completed for the 2020 NCAA football season. In the meantime, the Aztecs will continue to play at SDCCU Stadium, which won’t be demolished until the new stadium is complete.

The $88-million transfer of the 135-acre site officially was completed last week when San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer formally signed off on the deal, after it was approved by the San Diego City Council. The development of the site will begin with the new stadium and a 35-acre park before moving on to a proposed campus expansion at SDSU Mission Valley, developed in conjunction with JMI Sports and Legends.

All in all, the $3.5-billion development plan includes 51 additional acres of parkland and open space, 1.6 million square feet of office and research space, 4,600 housing units with 10 percent set aside for low-income households, 95,000 square feet of campus retail and a 400-room hotel.
