First Food Vendors Selected For Incoming San Diego State University Aztec Stadium

November 3, 2021

San Diego State University's incoming Aztec Stadium is still in early construction, but the first lineup of eight food vendors are already signed on and consist of some of San Diego's top brands. 

Filling the void left by last year's demolition of San Diego Stadium (previously known as Jack Murphy Stadium, Qualcomm Stadium, and SDCCU Stadium), Aztec Stadium broke ground on August 17, 2020 and is expected to be complete by September 3, 2022, when the SDSU Aztecs will host the University of Arizona. The new stadium will have capacity for up to 35,000 people, although it is designed to be expandable to a capacity of 55,000. In addition to SDSU college football, the stadium is being built to support non-football NCAA championship games, professional soccer and special events like concerts.

The first eight permanent food vendors for Aztec Stadium were unveiled today. In addition to generic hot dog and snack vendors, the food options will include expanding San Diego-based fried chicken house The Crack Shack; Ocean Beach burger icon Hodad's; Point Loma's cheesesteak mavens Gaglione Brothers; local modern taqueria The Taco Stand; Spring Valley's Cali Comfort BBQ offshoot Cali BBQ; Del Mar sweet shop Batch & Box; New York City-style San Diego pizza chain Best Pizza & Brew; and San Diego superfood fanatics Everbowl. There will also be a rotating food truck on game days. 

Aztec Stadium is just one part of a $3.5 billion SDSU Mission Valley redevelopment project that will be developed in phases over 10-15 year and also includes new housing for students, office and retail space, hotels, and 80 acres of parks and open space, including a 34 acre river park along the San Diego River.

Aztec Stadium will sit at 1 Stadium Plaza in San Diego's Mission Valley. For more information, visit
