Stadium station is a San Diego Trolley stop on the Green Line. The elevated station has an island platform as well as side platforms. It is located in the parking lot of the SDCCU Stadium, home to the San Diego State Aztecs football team, and is frequently used during major stadium event days. When not used for events, the large parking lots serve as a massive park and ride facility. Previously known as the Qualcomm Stadium station, it was renamed after Qualcomm's naming rights to the stadium expired in June 2017.

Prior to July 2005, this station was served by the Blue Line until service between Old Town Transit Center and Mission San Diego was replaced by the Green Line upon its introduction in conjunction with the opening of the Mission Valley East extension.[1]
