SDSU Mission Valley will serve higher education, the public good, and the community's goals and aspirations. SDSU envisions a vibrant, mixed-use, medium-density development that is transit-oriented, and expands the university's educational, research, entrepreneurial, and technology transfer programs.

As a catalyst for the future, Aztec Stadium is the first project of the SDSU Mission Valley campus. This historic expansion will launch San Diego State University into a bold future. Sitting in the heart of America's Finest City, this multi-use venue will serve as a hub of community engagement and Aztec pride.

The 35,000-capacity stadium with flexibility to expand temporarily to 40,000 will serve as the home for Aztec Football. SDSU will work with partners in the tourism industry to host: NCAA championships, international soccer, concerts, festivals, high school sports, and other entertainment events. The stadium will cultivate a world-class experience for students, faculty, staff, community members and over 200,000 SDSU alumni in San Diego County.

In 2019, SDSU selected Clark Construction as the stadium contractor, announced Gensler as the architect and released a draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR). SDSU continues to engage in productive conversations with the city on the sale of the property. Upon approval, stadium construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2020 with completion in time for the start of the 2022 college football season.

We anticipate two types of seating options in the new stadium: Premium and Priority. Specific details including pricing and amenities for premium seating will be released in 2020 followed by priority seating in 2021.

We are in the process of finalizing the details around the premium and priority seating options. Our plan is to begin reaching out in the spring of 2020 with specific details around process, timeline and seating options.

To bring the new stadium to life prior to its 2022 opening, we are constructing an Experience Center featuring a full-scale stadium model. The experience center will "tell the SDSU story" through by utilizing modern technology. We anticipate the experience center to open in 2020 and provide space to meet individually with SDSU Athletics representatives as well as attend a variety of special events.

A variety of new premium seating options including suites, loge boxes and club seats will be available. Detailed information on the types of amenities for each premium seating option will provided in as design details are finalized in 2020. To ensure you stay informed about the project, including premium seating, please register to become a Project Insider HERE.

Ticket prices will be established once stadium designs and seating configurations in the new stadium are finalized. We will share more information on pricing as it becomes available. Our goal is to provide options for all fans to support SDSU while enjoying a world class experience.
