History has been made at Qualcomm. Willie Mays hit his 600th career home run there in 1969. It has hosted two Super Bowls, two MLB All-Star Games, two Rolling Stones concerts and two U2 concerts. The World Series has been played there twice. The stadium has seen countless motocross and monster truck races. It has had two name changes, from San Diego Stadium to San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium in 1982 (many still call it "The Murph") and to Qualcomm in 1997.

Getting there by car:
If you decide to drive, plan to come early as the parking lot surrounding the stadium fills quickly due to the numerous tailgate parties and the halftime show fireworks. The city of San Diego controls the stadium parking lot and parking fees for the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl are $16 for cars and $45 for RV's.
Getting there by bus or trolley:
Qualcomm sits at the crossroads of a vast freeway system and mass transit network. There is a clean, fast and efficient system of mass transportation - public buses and trolleys - that lets fans travel to the stadium easily and affordably. The San Diego Trolley's Green and Special Event Lines, with connections to Mission Valley, downtown and East County stops just steps away from Gate K at Qualcomm Stadium and is a great alternative to driving to the game. Let OTIS (Online Transit Information System) find the right bus or trolley for you. Click here for more information on public transportation to the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.
