LOUISVILLE CITY FC | LouCity Plans To Build Soccer-Specific Stadium in Louisville
04/12/2017 05:02 PM
Louisville City FC announced on Wednesday that it plans to build a soccer-specific stadium in the Butchertown Neighborhood of Louisville.
The site of the proposed facility is within walking distance to the Big Four Bridge. It is also located blocks from Main Street.
The club says the 10,000-seat stadium would open in 2020.
The reason it will have to open by 2020 is because the USL is mandating that all teams play in a soccer-specific stadium by 2020.
LouCity chairman John Neace says that 10,000 seats is what its capacity will be initially, although it will likely expand in the future.
Details of how the stadium is set to be paid for were not revealed during a press conference on Wednesday morning.
