NBA/NHL arena proposed for downtown San Diego

Proposed Seaport Village Arena

18,000-seat arena proposed for Seaport Village – San Diego Union-Tribune
When live-entertainment powerhouse AEG opened the 19,000-capacity Staples Center in 1999 as the largest indoor concert venue and sports arena in Los Angeles, it became a catalyst in the revitalization of the city’s downtown.

Now, AEG hopes to build a similar state-of-the-art sports and entertainment arena at the site of what is now Seaport Village in downtown San Diego. Like the $375 million Staples Center, the new 18,000-seat arena here could be privately financed.

Argentina’s Copa final failure pushes Messi toward international retirement – Sports Illustrated
Lionel Messi lost the 2014 World Cup final to Germany in extra time. He lost the 2015 Copa América final to Chile on penalty kicks after a scoreless draw. And on Sunday night, granted another chance in this special centennial tournament to do for country what he’s done so often for his club, it happened again. Except he made his penalty last summer—this time he missed, hooking his effort well over the crossbar and into the stands behind the south goal.

Ryan Lochte misses Olympic spot in 400 IM – USA Today
Though he has five more opportunities to make the U.S. Olympic team, it’s still jarring that the reigning Olympic gold medalist in the 400 IM will not swim the event in Rio. And it’s also jarring to note that neither Ryan Lochte or 22-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps will be in the pool on the Games’ first night at all. It will be the first time since 2000 that neither swimmer will race the most grueling event at the Olympics.

One thought on “NBA/NHL arena proposed for downtown San Diego

  1. Kenneth Reed

    This is sad.

    I grew up on 16th and Imperial in the Father Joe’s house now. 1959-1964.

    I was back home last July….sad. Where I use to walk to get to the ferry to go to Coronado where I was born is all gone. The Padres ball park, SDMTA
    and all the houses ( it was a large warehouse district. when I went to Sherman and Memorial JHS). Now you want to tear down Seaport Village that was only built in the late 70’s. Sad. When will it stop.

    I am 66 years of age. Born in San Diego and can’t afford to move home because the prices are wacky. I moved from San Diego 1983… It is sad to see the money hungry developers taking over.

    My parent bought a house in O’Farrell area for $19k in 1964. Looking at various realtors sites now it is now valued at close to $385k.

    DEPRESSING. I am retired. The San Diego that had seaplanes landing in the bay and all the naval ships is a fading and distant memory and now you want to build a basketball/hockey arena when you had both in the 60’s and 70’s and the city would not support Mr. Bob Brietbard’ efforts at that time.

    Sad, depressing and most of all disheartening.
