$250m 26,000 capacity stadium to be build for FC Cincinnati

FC Cincinnati reveal plans for new $250m stadium

Wednesday 17th July 2019

FC Cincinnati are the latest US team to announce plans to build a new stadium.

The MLS Eastern Conference side currently play at Nippert Stadium at the University of Cincinnati. The club now plan to spend a cool $250m constructing a brand new 26,000 capacity venue.

Hot on the heels of LA Galaxy, the new ground will also include 3,100 “safe standing” seats. The stands will be built at a steep 34 degree angle to give great views and ensure that no seat will be further than 130ft from the pitch.

West End stadium will also feature 513 “vertical fins” which will contain LED lights allowing the ground to display messages and light shows on its exterior.

It is hoped that the new stadium will be ready for the start of the 2021 MLS season.
