What’s up everyone this is Josh, fellow WEMBlizen and new VenuMaster! I’m here to give you the inside scoop on all things venue’s starting with Qualcomm Stadium, located sunny San Diego, California.
Compared to other NFL Stadiums Qualcomm’s capacity is about 71,000, a little above average. With 71,000 seats, there are some real good seats, some real crappy seats, and a bunch of decent seats. Just a side note, San Diego is usually sunny about 300 days a year and can get pretty hot. If you’re going to an afternoon game and don’t want to sit in the sun, grab a seat on the South side of the stadium ‘cause it’s usually more shady.
Good seats - Seats in Plaza level that aren’t obstructed are a safe bet. You can see the field well because you’re not too far away, but not close enough to the field that the players on the sidelines are blocking your view.
Best seats - Any seat that is in Field Level section 14-19. They’re right behind the endzone.
Worst seats - Obviously nosebleed seats are the worst, because they’re farthest away from the action, but the rows closest to the field in Field Level section 1-10 are pretty lame too. You’d think that seats closest to the field would be best right? Not this time. The view from these seats is sometimes blocked by players, speakers, and the like (unless you’re like 6’6).
Family seats - There’s a section of the stadium designated just for families! So if you’re a dad or mom that wants to bring your kid to the game, but doesn’t want to have him around a bunch of hooligans or craziness, hit up View Level Sections 54-58, Rows 5-26. There’s no abusive language or alcohol allowed in that area.
Parking and traffic can be really hectic before a game! It could take you up to 2 hours to get into the stadium and parked from the freeway. If you’re not tailgating, the smart bet is to take the trolley from the Old Town or Linda Vista trolley station. It’s $5 (a lot cheaper than parking at the stadium) and you don’t have to worry about actually parking. If you do plan on parking however, you’re gonna have to pony up $25 for a spot.
Tailgating - Tailgating at Qualcomm is AWESOME. The weather is generally great, so you can bring your flip flops, t-shirt, shorts, your beer and your meat and set up shop. There’s no glass allowed though so remember not to bring all of your supplies in mason jars. There’s also a tailgate party called The Bud Light Chargers Power Party Tailgate located in section F2 parking which is legit. You can get beer there cheaper than you can in the stadium.
Beer - The price of beer at the stadium is $9:00 for 20oz domestic beer, and $11, 16oz for premium beer. You can also go to the Bud Light Chargers Power Party Tailgate and get a $6, 16oz domestic beer.
If you only brought your card with you, there are ATM’s at
-Field Level near Section 19
-Plaza Level near Gate F
-Club Level near Sections 15 and 27
-View Level near Section 20
Water fountains are near every bathroom.
Lost & Found is located at the Guest Services office, located on the Plaza Level between Gates F and G.
That’s the goods on Qualcomm. If you have any other tidbits to add - go ahead and post ‘em here. Make sure to stop by every Tuesday for new venue info. Next up is Cricket Wireless Amphitheater!
