Viejas Arena History

As home to the San Diego State Aztecs men's and women's basketball teams, Viejas Arena is one of the most popular venues in all of San Diego, California. The arena opened in 1997 to become home to the Aztec's men's basketball team which had previously played off campus at the San Diego Sports Arena. It was built on the former site of the Aztec Bowl which had once served as the home of the SDSU football team before they moved off campus to share Qualcomm Stadium with the San Diego Chargers. As the Aztecs have achieved more and more success over recent years, tickets to see them play at Viejas Arena have become the hottest tickets in America's Finest City.


Viejas Arena Events

Although it is known throughout the country as the raucous home of SDSU Aztecs basketball there is much more going on at Viejas Arena throughout the year. The venue has hosted the first and second rounds of the NCAA Mens Basketball Tournament three times, along with the USA Volleyball Cup, the WCW Bash at the Beach, TNA Wrestling's Bound for Glory, and indoor football. Aside from sports, Viejas Arena has also been the site for many of the biggest concerts to come to the San Diego area including performances by Metallica, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Lady Gaga, Green Day, One Direction, Drake, Van Halen, Foo Fighters, the Black Keys, and more.


San Diego, California

San Diego is a major tourist destination and a trip to Southern California would simply be incomplete without a visit to America's Finest City. If it is baseball season you can catch a ball game at Petco Park in downtown San Diego and then explore the Gaslamp District before or after the game. Football season brings NFL games courtesy of the San Diego Chargers who call Qualcomm Stadium home if you are looking for some gridiron action. A visit to the beaches in San Diego is of course a must, as is a trip to the world famous San Diego Zoo. If architecture and museums are more your thing head over to Balboa Park which has a bevy of museums and Spanish influenced architecture to explore. A trip to Old Town will give you the chance to eat some fantastic Mexican food and explore the remnants of San Diego's past.


Viejas Arena Seating Layout

Viejas Arena holds up to 12,414 fans for basketball games, a number that increases to 12,845 for big concerts. It is a state of the art arena offering excellent sound, lighting, and video screens that assure patrons that wherever they are seated they are sure to have a great time and an obstructed view of all the action. Tickets to see the Aztecs play at Viejas Arena may typically be hard to find but you can always find SDSU basketball tickets here on StubHub.


Trivia

The arena opened as Cox Arena and kept that name through 2009 when the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians bought the naming rights and changed the name to Viejas Arena. Megadeth recorded their concert DVD Blood in the Water: Live in San Diego during a concert at Viejas Arena.
