New 20,000 seater stadium to be built for North Carolina FC

North Carolina FC reveal new stadium plans

Sunday 7th July 2019

North Carolina FC have become the latest in a long line of US football teams to announce a new stadium project.

The team plays in the United States Soccer League Championship Eastern Conference (one step below the MLS) and plans to spend $180m on a new 20,000 seater stadium in downtown Raleigh.

The stadium will be part of a much bigger development aimed to regenerate the local area - over $2 billion is being invested in a project which will also include retail space, office space and housing.

The club’s current stadium (WakeMed Soccer Park) holds 10,000 whilst this season’s average attendance is just 4,500. The new 20,000 seater venue will also be used for concerts, festivals and other events.
