San Diego Wave FC Sells Out Club’s First Game at Snapdragon Stadium


San Diego Wave FC
San Diego Wave FC has found a place in fans’ hearts even in the team’s first season.

San Diego Wave FC has announced a sellout for its Sept. 17 match against Angel City FC at the new Snapdragon Stadium in Mission Valley.

After surpassing the National Women’s Soccer League attendance record last week, San Diego sold every seat in Snapdragon made available based on the stadium set-up for viewing soccer.

“This is a great reflection of the momentum we see in women’s sports,” club President Jill Ellis said. “We’ve sold all of our inventory, it’s incredible. We should celebrate this, but we should now expect it, big crowds for women’s professional sports.”

The organization hopes enough fans will pack the stadium on Sept. 17 to make up the largest crowd to ever attend an NWSL match. The current record for a single game was set by the Portland Thorns in 2019 – 25,218 at Providence Park.

Fans still hoping to attend the 7 p.m. match against can buy limited verified resale tickets on Ticketmaster.

In addition, the Wave will host a free So-Cal-themed Boardwalk Fest outside Snapdragon for the Angel City match, with food, live music, art, a kids zone and prizes.

There will be one more chance to see Wave FC at Snapdragon this season. The team’s 2022 regular-season finale is set for Sept. 30 against the North Carolina Courage. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 9.

San Diego Wave FC continues fighting for a playoff spot in its inaugural season and has sat consistently near the top of the NWSL standings since Week One, a rare feat for an expansion team.

Forward Alex Morgan leads the NWSL Golden Boot race with 13 goals in 15 matches. Goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan has successfully reached a career milestone of 20 shutouts in league play.
