It is the current home of the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League (NFL) and the San Diego State Aztecs football team from San Diego State. Two college football bowl games, the Holiday Bowland Poinsettia Bowl, are held in the stadium every December. The San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball (MLB) played home games at the stadium from their founding in 1969 through the 2003 season, after which they moved to Petco Park.

The stadium has hosted three Super Bowl games: Super Bowl XXII in 1988, Super Bowl XXXII in 1998, and Super Bowl XXXVII in 2003. It has also hosted the 1978 and 1992 Major League Baseball All-Star Games, as well as games of the 1996 and 1998 National League Division Series, the 1984 and 1998 National League Championship Series, and the 1984 and 1998 World Series. It is the only stadium ever to host both the Super Bowl and the World Series in the same year (1998) and is one of three stadiums to host the World Series, MLB All-Star Game, and Super Bowl, along with the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis and Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
