The potential “SoccerCity” development on the site of Qualcomm Stadium has ignited a storm of renderings and fan discussion on whether an MLS team in San Diego can work as a replacement to the departed Chargers football team.
The development by the group promises to construct a 30,000-seat stadium to house a MLS team and San Diego State University sports events, about 5,000 public and student residential units, office and retail space, about 18,000 parking spaces, and development of parkland, including the San Diego River Park.
SDSU is looking into its own options for developing the site as well. The school has said they are in talks with multiple parties interested in developing the Mission Valley site, but have not made any commitments to partner with any specific party at this time.
Voting is underway on Facebook, and here, for a potential name for a San Diego MLS team, with “Footy McFooty Face” leading by a large margin.
LOL! “Footy McFooty Face” is making international news! While the name is ridiculous, I suppose the people behind professional MLS have done their due diligence and that there’s actually enough of a soccer following/fan base for them to put up the money to build a soccer stadium.
I voted for “San Diego Armada”
They got themselves in a pickle now, and have shut down the voting. I’m sure they will do the PC thing and forget they ever offered to have the public vote on a name.
I liked the Bad Hombres myself!
Inspired by Boaty McBoat Face, no doubt. http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/03/13/519976028/boaty-mcboatface-prepares-for-first-antarctic-mission
