San Diego State And Major League Soccer Explore Mission Valley Stadium
Over 18,000 season ticket holders, alumni, and Aztec supporters received a survey on Thursday, part of a market feasibility study.
The goal? To find out if San Diegans are interested in a multi-purpose stadium for Aztec football and Major League Soccer. The stadium would be in Mission Valley, but not necessarily at the current Qualcomm Stadium location.
San Diego State Interim Director of Athletics Jenny Bramer said they are in discussions with Major League Soccer.
“If we consider creating a stadium with a partner we have to consider our partner's desires as well,” Bramer said. “So that’s why some of those questions, to figure out the best way to build that stadium or to create that stadium in a way that works best for our partners.”
In the survey, there’s a diagram of a stadium that includes potential seating and pricing options. It asks users to rate their likelihood of going to various entertainment and sporting events.
Bramer said they plan on making good use of the survey’s data.
“Based on whatever feedback we get from them, then at that point we can do something with it and analyze what that actually means,” she said.
She reiterated this is one of many options the Aztecs are exploring.
“It’s just figuring it all out and putting the information together to come up with the best option ultimately for San Diego State athletics,” Bramer said.
