SSCCU: History

This multipurpose stadium located in the city of San Diego, California, has a capacity of 72,500 spectators and was inaugurated in 1967.

Previously called San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium between 1980 and 1997 in honor of the sports journalist who promoted the project and Qualcomm Stadium between 1997 and 2017.

Since it opened its doors, it has been the home of different teams of both football and baseball. This is the case of the San Diego State Aztec
franchises of the National Football League and San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball, to mention a few.

Throughout its history, SDCCU Stadium was the scene of major sporting events hosting three Superbowls (1988-1998-2003), home of the Major League Baseball Star Game, and the Baseball World Series among other competitions.

It also has a rich history in football, being the venue for tournaments organized by FIFA such as the Concacaf Gold Cup and the United States Cup. In addition, it has received several international friendlies, including the match between Mexico and Argentina that took place on June 4, 2008, and summoned 68,498 spectators establishing a record for this sport in the region.

Its structure with platforms in the form of super ellipse allow a better vision and the ability to adapt to different sports (football, soccer, baseball, rugby) and musical events.

The scene of the first match of the Colossus Cup will be on June 28th, in which Chivas de Guadalajara (Mexico) will face River Plate (Argentina).
