    Key information for fans attending preseason games at Qualcomm Stadium:

    Kick-off: 6:00 PM PST

    • The parking lot opens at 2:00 PM. Vehicles with pre-purchased parking permits can enter the parking lot five hours prior to kickoff.
    • If driving, please research alternative traffic routes. Interstate 15 is the most congested traffic route to Qualcomm Stadium.
    • Carpool and arrive early or take the Trolley (www.sdcommute.com).

    • In response to fans projected high attendance at the two Pre Season Games, and in addition to enhanced Trolley service to Qualcomm Stadium, MTS will also provide Chargers Express Bus Service to the Saturday August 14th and Saturday, August 21st games.

    • The Amtrak Pacific Surfliner will make its regularly scheduled trips to San Diego’s downtown Santa Fe Depot. Special service will resume during regular season weekend games only.
    • Get to the entry gates by 5:00 PM in preparation for bag inspection and search procedures. Every fan entering Qualcomm Stadium will be subject to a “pat-down” search in an effort to assure a safe and enjoyable game-day experience.
    • At the gates, all tickets are scanned to ease entry and deter counterfeit tickets.
    • Fans will find the most up-to-date game-day information at www.chargers.com.
    • Per City of San Diego ordinance, Qualcomm Stadium is a smoke-free facility. Smoking is not allowed inside the stadium.
    • Glass bottles and containers are not allowed inside the stadium parking lot.
    Transportation to the Game
    San Diego Transit Chargers Express Bus

    Chargers Express Buses will begin boarding 2 hours before game time from all five locations:

    • Mira Mesa Park & Ride
    • Governor & I-805 Park & Ride
    • Kearny Mesa Traffic Court
    • Chula Vista High School
    • Spring St. Trolley Station
    Buses return 20 minutes after conclusion of game. Round-trip fare is $10
    The San Diego Trolley
    The San Diego Trolley is the number-one mode of transportation to the stadium. Fans can ride the Trolley on the Green Line between Old Town and Santee before and after all games.
    Charger fans will have increased options along the Green Line from the East County, including:

    • El Cajon Transit Center (Main St. at Marshall)
    • Grossmont Transit Center (8601 Fletcher Parkway at Grossmont Center Dr.)
    • Grantville (I-8 at Mission Gorge)
    Fans can also pick up the Trolley at:

    • Hazard Center (parking is free on Hazard Center’s lower level, corner of Friars Road and Frazee)
    • Old Town Transit Center (Pacific Highway at Taylor Street)
    The Green Line begins running three hours before kickoff. Buy a $5 Day Pass at ticket vending machines before boarding. Commemorative Day Passes are also sold in advance at The Transit Store at 1st and Broadway and at the Chargers Team Store at Qualcomm Stadium, Gate G. For more information on the San Diego Trolley, visit www.sdmts.com or call 5-1-1.

    Driving to the Game

    For fans that must drive to the stadium, they are urged to carpool and arrive early. We strongly encourage fans to arrive at least two hours before game time. As usual, there will be heavy congestion around the stadium and avoid the congestion on Interstate 15 South. Fans traveling south to the stadium are recommended to take 163 South to Friars Road East, or take Interstate 8 to Qualcomm Way which also leads to Friars Road East.
    The stadium parking lot opens four hours prior to kickoff. Vehicles with pre-purchased parking permits can enter the parking lot five hours prior to kickoff. The parking lot can be expected to reach capacity and close an hour or more before kickoff.
    Overflow parking will be available at the Chicago Title building (corner of Friars Road and Northside Drive), San Diego State University, Mission Valley Marriott Hotel and the Town and Country Hotel. Overflow lots vary in price.

    With the parking lot expected to fill early, fans are reminded that tailgating is allowed only in their own parking space. Police will issue citations to fans whose tailgate parties infringe on neighboring parking spaces or parties which block sidewalk and pedestrian areas. Fans are also reminded that glass bottles are not allowed in the parking lot.

    Family Parking

    This alternative tailgate area is ideal for families, friends and individuals who choose to tailgate without featuring alcohol at their party. The Chargers, in cooperation with Qualcomm Stadium, Ace Parking and the San Diego Police Department are offering this parking location to all guests as a reserved permit parking area. Permits can be purchased in advance, on a seasonal basis, for only $20 per game. To purchase, call the Chargers ticket office at (619) 281-PARK.

    Entering the Stadium

    Gates to the stadium will open at 5:00 PM. Club seat and luxury suite ticket holders will be admitted beginning at 4:00 PM. In order to be in their seats in time for the 7:00 PM kickoff, fans should arrive at the stadium gates by 6:00 PM.

    Gameday…The Right Way!

    The Chargers are committed to creating a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience for all fans, both in the stadium and in the parking lot. We want all fans attending our games to enjoy the experience in a responsible fashion.
