USA Masters Games in San Diego for 2017 and 2018


SDEF has been part of the exciting journey of vying, bidding and winning the 2nd and 3rd installment of the USA Masters Games taking place in 2017 and 2018.

Venues in San Diego are high quality and conveniently located. Competition sites will include the University of California San Diego (UCSD), University of San Diego, Mission Beach, Qualcomm Stadium, and the Chula Vista Elite Training Center (formerly the U.S. Olympic Training Center), among others. Opening Ceremonies will be held at Qualcomm Stadium, home of three Super Bowls, while social events will highlight San Diego’s favorite entertainment locales.

The USA Masters Games now has a proven track record as a major competitive and fun event. San Diego, with its extensive multi-sport experience — both the Winter and Summer California State Games are permanently located there — makes for an ideal setting for the Games’ second edition. The high-powered and deeply-experienced Local Organizing Committee, led by the California State Games and supported by the San Diego Exploratory Foundation and the San Diego Tourism Authority, will take the Games to the next level.
