Louisville City FC Provides Details About the New Stadium

What:  Executives at Louisville City FC provided details of their plan to build a US $40 million soccer stadium in Louisville.
Why it matters: AccLouisville urgently needs a stadium for soccer to keep growing in the city, according to a study made by the team last August.

Until now, the United Soccer League (USL) team created in 2014 has been playing its matches at the Louisville Slugger Field, which was actually built to play baseball.

The new stadium and adjacent space (office, retail and hotel space) will cover 40 acres of land for a 10,000-seat soccer stadium. An investment of approximately US $200 million is needed, US $40 million of which will be used for the stadium only. Executives at Luisville City FC are looking to create a "public-private partnership" with the Louisville Metro government and state officials, to raise that amount of money. In January, Louisville City signed an agreement with architecture firm HOK to design the 10,000-seat stadium which could later expand to 20,000 seats. HOK has already developed other soccer-specific stadiums with USL teams.
