Orange Coast College? That is Orange Lutheran’s home field already, and also Orange Coast’s, of course. There might be enough open dates, on Thursdays, some Fridays and some Saturdays, to make that a choice.

It looks like Santa Ana Unified high schools and their football teams would not be affected, as the public schools are viewed as partners of the city-owned stadium.
Also, the Chivas USA-to-Santa Ana plan, if there is one, allegedly includes transforming Willowick Golf Course in Santa Ana into a soccer complex for Chivas USA in particular and the soccer community in general. So, if/when Willowick is converted, then Santa Ana Stadium could be open to Mater Dei again — and perhaps it would be a modernized Santa Ana Stadium that would welcome back the Monarchs.
