New Chargers Stadium – design description

New vision for an NFL stadium in San Diego was drawn by Populous, ordered by the city. The building would hold 67,500 people on regular matchdays with capability to increase by further 5,500 for large events, like the Super Bowl.

As for theming, the stadium celebrates San Diego as “the city of villages”, thus it’s a series of semi-open, interconnected facilities rather than one opaque building. It’s gently covered from the outside with ribbon-like cladding that resembles ocean waves meeting the city shore.

The entire scheme was created as a part of San Diego’s bid to keep NFL franchise Chargers within San Diego. The team have so far played at the dated Qualcomm Stadium in Mission Valley, which would be demolished and replaced by this new arena.
