Downtown riverfront stadium resplendent with full facilities would put OKC in with a real chance of NASL status.
Plans are underway to build Oklahoma City FC a stadium in Downtown Oklahoma City. The capacity would be within the 9,000-14,000 range, and the larger complex surrounding it would also contain 10 youth practice fields and a full first team training facility.
Sources revealed to Eastword News that the owners of local team Oklahoma City FC, along with partners, would pay for the entirety of the work, with the specific intention of luring NASL football to Oklahoma City.
“It will be a multi-purpose facility in that sense,” the sources, who asked to remain nameless, said.
“This is needed so Oklahoma City can draw big youth soccer events. It will have a huge economic impact on the community.”
OKC FC currently play in the United Soccer Leagues’ Premier Development League. The PDL, along with the National Premier Soccer League, comprise the fourth division of men’s football in the USA.
