UPDATE: In a Aug. 8 tweet, Snapdragon Stadium added Sandbar to the list.
SAN DIEGO — San Diego State University has announced nine of the food vendors slated for its new stadium in Mission Valley, with some familiar names topping the list of local favorites.
Snapdragon Stadium will feature stands from:
- Batch & Box
- Best Pizza and Brew
- Cali BBQ
- The Crack Shack
- Gaglione Brothers
- The Taco Stand
The stadium will host its first Aztecs home game in less than a month: The team takes on Arizona on Sept. 3.
It will mark the culmination of a years-long project to remake the home of SDSU football, with crews tearing down the former SDCCU Stadium (still known to many as “the Q” from its days named for Qualcomm) and replacing it with a 35,000-seat venue.
In addition to home football games, the stadium will be home to an estimated 300 events annually, including soccer games, concerts, festivals and other entertainment.
The school has announced football season ticket prices for the venue’s inaugural year, with more details on other events to come.
In April, SDSU football players finally got to tour the new stadium.
“I was really excited when I knew that we were going to tour the stadium today,” wide receiver Jesse Mathews said. “Just walking through the tunnels and being on that field and seeing the stands and everything and how it’s going to look when the season comes along, that was the best part for me.
The Aztecs got off to a hot start in 2021, starting 7-0 but eventually losing to Utah State in the Mountain West Conference title game. The team played its “home” games in Carson while it awaited the stadium’s completion.
