Stadium milestones: Seats installed; translucent roof begun

T-Minus 10 months for stadium completion Social Media

With a wary optimisim, the Chargers prepare for a fateful second half of the 2019 season. This season marks their expected last games at the Dignity Health Sports Park half-way house, formerly known as Stub Hub Center.

Whether well-conceived or not, the Chargers made a franchise-changing move to jump from San Diego to LA, with the league’s finest stadium being the immediate carrot leading the horse. For all of the struggle and strife of being in-between stadiums, there has always been the expectation of a state-of-the-art home in the near future. That future gets closer with each passing day.

SoFi Stadium today tweeted a shot of seats being installed at the stadium, a major milestone in the construction timeline. Although it is just the beginning of what could be loosely termed interior decorating, it helps to give an idea of what the final product will look like.

What’s more, details about the outer trim are becoming clearer. Quite literally!

The ending ‘color’ of the roof will be translucent, giving fans a truly one-of-a-kind experience inside the stadium. Some have described the roof as being transparent, but it is (pun intended) unclear which description is more accurate at this time. Transparency is essentially completely see-through, while translucence is only partially clear, and would presumably be more beneficial against the bright sun.

There are many other architectural tricks up Kroenke’s sleeve, no doubt, but they are slowly being revealed as the stadium creeps closer and closer to its own opening day.
