CSAG presents proposal for new Mission Valley NFL stadium

Earlier today, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s Citizen Stadium Advisory Group proposed a 1.1 billion dollar plan to build a new football stadium on the Mission Valley site where Qualcomm Stadium currently sits.

To pay for the proposed stadium, parking, stadium-related infrastructure and operations and maintenance, CSAG’s financing plan includes 60 acres of land from the City of San Diego valued at $180 million, and more than a dozen funding sources that exceed $1.4 billion, including:

  • $300 million from the Chargers
  • $173 million in bondable construction capital from the team’s rent.
  • $200 million from the NFL.
  • $121 million from the County of San Diego.
  • $121 million from the City of San Diego.
  • $225 million from the sale of 75 acres of land.
  • More than $100 million from fans, who would contribute through the purchase of Personal Seat Licenses (PSLs), and ticket and parking surcharges.
