Aztec Stadium Virtual Fly Through

Recommended Posts

Looks fantastic.  Even for a school the size of SDSU in a large city like San Diego it's a huge deal for a non-power conference program to get to build a stadium from the ground up.

It looks the sidelines have an 8 lane track between them.  The seats are so far away from the field.  Hopefully that isn’t going to happen in reality.

just for comparison, this is drone footage of UABs new stadium under construction.

 


i like how much closer the seats are to the field than at CSU-Díego.

They're made the field sufficiently wide for soccer because they've taken on over $350 mil in debt and need an equity partner. After all San Diego is a CITY that loves its SOCCER. You might even call it a SOCCER CITY.  They've also made the seating bowl steeper because that's the preference of the SOCCER folks and built in the supports for a canopy because.... SOCCER.

It's going a very nice little stadium when complete with zero bench seating and amenities similar to Petco.

$350mm in debit to build a 1/2-half ass multipurpose stadium?

CSU-Diego should have built a football only building for $223mm 5-yrs-ago like the real CSU did.

Yeah the seats are so far from the field, why all that space on the sidelines.  Might as well not build it if you are going to do it wrong.

Can you post the pics/links of UNLV’s new stadium? I’m sure they got the seating right..

I been to your Utard stadium, very nice High School type place.  Don't jump too hard on the bleacher seats or the whole place might fall down.  Nice for High School football.  Going forward, I am sure the PAC-12 wouldn't want to host any important events there.  Amateur hour bull$hit.

Hmmm. I thought that  is the Raiders’ Stadium? Wasn’t the construction funded by public funds, NFL money and a $650 million loan taken out by the Raiders?

Isn’t UNLV just paying rent? I’m sure this stadium would have been built if The Raiders didn’t come to town.. UNLV has had 50 years to gain interest for a new stadium..... Interesting timing.. I guess.

And you’re right. Rice Eccles is a high school dump..

LOL. UNLV fans crowing about the Raiders Stadium like it's their own is like me claiming because I rent a place with a value of over $2 million dollars that, I, in fact, have a $2 million dollar+ house.

Wow is it possible to be wrong on every point?  Las Vegas Stadium Authority owns the stadium.  They pay UNLV to play in the stadium so that is the opposite of rent.

Now, back to your Utard high school stadium with the bleacher seats and the straight up stands where fans faint and die from nosebleeds.

Heard the PAC-12 was considering your Utard stadium for major Conference events!  Oh no, I didn't hear that.

That is where UNLV will be playing for the next 30 to 50 years so if that isn't our home, I would like to know what is?

That is where we play right by campus and overlooking the strip.  Lucky us.  Whole world fighting to get a chance to play there.  That is our home.

But you guys can crow about your high school stadiums and all the big time events you host for High school.

Yeah. This is where I'll be living for the foreseeable future too. I don't know where else home would be.

My house overlooks the financial district high rises and has a view all the way to Mt. Diablo. Lucky me.

I love that stadium. I've been to a couple games there and have hung around that part of town countless times. Great setting and nice setup. The new renovations look great too.

I have been to your high school stadium.  It is like a kids erector set.  Bleacher seats everywhere and the place feels like it will collapse if you jump too hard.  Your program is so popular I didnt even know you still had a team since you left the MWC.  Thanks for stopping by.
