The Aztecs of San Diego State University will not be playing in San Diego this season. Qualcomm Stadium was in the process of being torn down, but the COVID-19 Pandemic halted operations on the new $310 Million Mission Valley Complex. The projected finish date now is in 2022 on September 3rd. The Stadium is hoping to open for the Aztecs vs. the Arizona Wildcats upcoming game.
The new task for the Aztecs will be the 2 hour drive to Carson to play their home games at Dignity Health Sports Park. This stadium is not foreign to San Diego football. The former San Diego Chargers played three seasons in Carson until they moved with the Los Angeles Rams into the $4 Billion SoFi Stadium.
Former Aztec Romeo Horn, said that the new location of the stadium, would not be a big deal. He actually said that it would, “Be pretty fun.” He explained how even when the Aztecs had home games, they stayed the night prior at a nearby hotel and had team meals and meetings.
Aside from the new location of the Aztecs, all of the ‘Show’ are still behind the San Diego State Aztecs. The 3 Time Mountain West Conference Champions will look to the upcoming season and their fourth Championship.
