San Diego State, City Still Working Toward Possible Stadium In Mission Valley
San Diego State AD John David Wicker said the school is "still working with the city" toward a possible stadium in Mission Valley near its campus. Wicker: "We had a lease extension that had basically been agreed to that would take us through 2020 and it kind of got held up for whatever reason, but we’re continuing to discuss with the city and looking at what that long-term outcome might be." SDSU is now the main tenant at Qualcomm Stadium with the Chargers in L.A. Wicker said Qualcomm Stadium is where SDSU is "going to be for the long-term" until the school "builds a stadium in Mission Valley." However, last week it came out that Qualcomm Stadium will close on Dec. 31, 2018. Meanwhile, Wicker noted SDSU will "roll out some new opportunities in the club areas" of Qualcomm Stadium this season. He added the school has sold "almost 3,000 new season-tickets" for football ahead of the '17 season (“Sports Xtra,” KGTV-ABC, 8/21).
