FC Arizona, a soccer club that competes in the National Premier Soccer League, announced plans Thursday for a new facility in the Southeast Valley, including a 10,900-seat multi-use stadium.
The exact location of the facility is to be determined, but FC Arizona said it is working with real-estate developers and investors to create the venue as part of a mixed-use development that includes offices, retail locations and a hotel.
In addition to the stadium, the facility will include four full-size fields, classrooms and an indoor soccer facility. FC Arizona, which currently plays its home games at Mesa High School, will be the primary tenant of the facility, but the club plans to hold concerts, high school football championships and other sporting events at the venue.
FC Arizona hopes to break ground on the facility in early 2021. It will be built on private land and will not require taxpayer funds, according to the team.
FC Arizona is in its third year of competition. In addition to its men's team, it recently added a women's soccer team and just announced the creation of a youth program. The NPSL is generally recognized as a fourth-tier soccer league in the United States.
FC Arizona released artist renderings of what the completed venue is expected to look like.
