The San Diego State football Aztecs will likely play in Mission Valley through the 2020 football season — and almost certainly for a good while after that.
As reported by Voice of San Diego, SDSU and the City of San Diego have reached a tentative deal on a lease extension for Aztecs football at SDCCU Stadium through the end of the 2020 season. This gives San Diego State certainty on a place to play until one of three scenarios comes to pass:
- SDSU West wins at the polls this fall and the university takes over the old hulk while building a new stadium.
- SoccerCity wins at the polls this fall and the soccer stadium opens in 2021.
- Both lose and a standard Request for Proposals (RFP) process, likely to include a new stadium, runs its course.
You’ll note none of these scenarios has SDSU football playing at Grossmont College or the ruins of Balboa Stadium, as some investor-affiliated social media personalities once snarkily predicted.
