San Diego State University has unveiled local companies as the first confirmed food vendors for the under-construction 35,000-seat Aztec Stadium.
The first eight featured providers are Batch & Box, Best Pizza and Brew, Cali BBQ, The Crack Shack, Everbowl, Gaglione Brothers, Hodad’s and The Taco Stand.
The vendors cover a range of cuisines and are intended to complement more traditional stadium food options. Additional food and beverage partners will be announced at a later date, a university statement read.
“Fans at Aztec Stadium will be treated to a best-in-class hospitality experience featuring iconic San Diego brands that have brought smiles to countless San Diegans over the years,” said Susan Hawke, executive general manager of food and beverage at Aztec Stadium.
“This will be a destination where people come not only to be entertained but enjoy foods that they love.”
The Aztec Stadium and SDSU’s 132-acre Mission Valley campus have been in the works since San Diego voters approved Measure G in November 2018. Aztec Stadium is due to open in September 2022, with the Aztecs currently playing home games at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson.
“Our goal in every aspect of this project has been to provide San Diego with not only a premier multi-purpose stadium, but with an experience that is true to our great city,” said Derek Grice, SDSU’s executive associate athletic director of Mission Valley development.
“Partnering with these phenomenal local brands delivers on our vision to have premium amenities for our patrons as well as provide an experience that is unique to San Diego.”
