Thankfully the UT confirmed that. In the byzantine world of California government politics, I still wasn't sure.

The future is looking bright for San Diego State. :)

But don't be misled. SDSU is NOT planning on building a 55K seat stadium.

Heard that it will actually be 40k with 5k removable to flex the seating based on opponent.

So the same size as the soccer stadium?  Wasn’t that the big issue before?

The planned soccer stadium was smaller.  24 to 34k.  And any MLS team would want control of ancillary revenues.

Not even remotely close. It’s not about a stadium only.  It’s a massive campus expansion that will primarily be focused on research and tech transfer and include a stadium as a first project.  The soccer city clowns would have made the entire property a giant commercial development with no SDSU expansion. It’s the biggest event to happen to SDSU in the past century.

Very pleased to get a new 40K stadium for SDSU. It will help the university more than most believe. Also happy about the research buildings which will be built but I truly believe SD deserves a MLS team. Soccer is the one growth sport in the nation which looks like it will continue to grow.and a MLS team would be a great asset to the city and area.  Looks like it will be delayed for several years now. Soccer fans deserve a team.

SDSU, USD, UCSD, and the new 1904 club all have good soccer programs.  Sparsely attended games all around.  I won't object to MLS, but SD doesn't support what SD has now.

1904 is way down the soccer food chain.  Landon Donovan's new 2nd division club playing at Torero had a good start before the plug got pulled.  And they've expressed interest in playing at the new Aztec digs in the future.

Congratulations on the expansion and stadium. SDSU has spent decades earning the opportunity to expand and excel.

The recent agreement between MLS and Liga MX probably makes it less likely that a MLS team is in San Diego because of the proximity to Club Tijuana.  

I don't know whether English language tv or audio broadcasts are made for CT games but since Liga MX is a better game than MLS in terms of competitive play I would guess english speaking San Diegans would be fans if they enjoy competitive soccer.
