The stadium parking lot holds 18,500 cars and is comprised of over 122 acres of parking space. Qualcomm Stadium first opened in 1967 and although the parking lot today has much the same configuration as then, several layout changes have been made over the years. The lot is comprised of the Inner Ring and the Outer Ring. The Outer Ring is arranged into four areas corresponding to four access gates. The Inner Ring is served only by two entrance gates and is entirely reserved parking for permits and officials.
If planning on driving to the stadium, we strongly encourage fans to arrive at least two hours before game time and to carpool with four people or more. 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 before kickoff.
The Chargers offer several parking permits options depending on your type of season ticket account. Reserved parking options are offered both in the inner and outer parking areas, including designated parking stalls reserved for Club and Suite ticket holders, reserved larger spots for RV parking, reserved tailgating areas and Family Parking, a no alcohol tailgate area. Our goal with these options is to provide greater driving and parking efficiency as well as a safer environment in the parking lot.
All RVs (vehicles longer than 20 feet) are required to park in a designated RV Parking Area in Lots A3 and A4. RVs should enter the parking lot through Gate 1 (see Stadium Parking Map). Permits are sold in advance by calling the Chargers Ticket Office at 619-281-PARK. The RV section does sell-out in advance of the game.

Ring Road Reserved
This area is for the fan who makes tailgating an art form. Located next to the berm that seperates the inner and outer parking areas, a Ring Road Reserved space makes it easier to enjoy a full day with food and friends, without the 5AM wakeup call. And with a reserved, designated and larger parking space for your tailgate, you can really show off what Chargers tailgating is all about.
Outer Ring Reserved Parking
Take advantage of having a reserved parking area for every Chargers home game just outside the Inner Ring. You will gain access to this reserved area quickly through the Main Gate.
Reserved RV Parking
Finally...a parking area reserved specifically for your RV with additional room to tailgate. You no longer have to wake up at the crack of dawn in order to get a space for your RV. The area features "directed-parking" (Disneyland-style parking), allowing you to find a space quickly and tailgate in the roadway, without fear of traffic.
Due to the construction of the new Mission Valley Fire Station 45 by the City of San Diego, the Chargers Family Parking Area will no longer be available as of the 2014 season. Station 45 has been housed in a modular trailer at the southwest end of the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot since March 2006. The new 16,290 square foot, two story building will house an engine, a truck, and the Hazardous Materials Response Team and will be the first permanent fire station ever in Mission Valley.
