Los Angeles is about to become an even bigger football town. On Tuesday, San Diego State University announced that home games for the 2021 football season will be played at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, neighboring the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills.
This agreement comes into play after the university began an overhaul of the current SDCCU Stadium where the Aztecs have played for the last 52 years to make room for a new stadium development set to open in time for the 2022 season.
Initially, the Aztecs wanted to play a farewell season in the old facility before bidding adieu. However to maximize the building process and to ensure everything finishes on schedule, it was decided that the Aztecs would play off-site for this next season.
Since opening its doors in 2003, the 27,000 seat-stadium has played host to a variety of different events. It has hosted Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy since the building’s inception. Additionally, the Los Angeles Wildcats (XFL) and the Los Angeles Chargers (NFL) have called the stadium home in recent years.
Aztec Football’s temporary move to Los Angeles will add to an already rich football culture that includes USC and UCLA along with the Rams and Chargers in nearby Inglewood.
