St. Louis CITY Soccer Club Reveals Updated Plans and Renderings for New MLS Stadium

ST. LOUIS, MO — With the early construction phase now complete, St. Louis CITY Soccer Club (CITY) has shared updated plans and renderings for its new stadium and district in downtown St. Louis. The Major League Soccer (MLS) expansion franchise is expected to begin play in 2023.

The club continues to work with HOK and Julie Snow, Cofounder of Snow Kreilich Architects, to ensure that, along with other additions in Downtown West, the new district will further St. Louis’ revitalization and be a connection point between The Gateway Arch and Forest Park.

At a virtual roundtable hosted by CITY, officials from the club and its partners described the fan- and community-first approach and reiterated their goal of creating more than just a sports venue, but also a place that connects to life in St. Louis on non-gamedays.

The new HOK-Snow Kreilich renderings show an integrated, accessible urban design. Updates include:

  • A new unique set of entries to the stadium on the 22nd Street side to accommodate fans coming from the northwest and southwest, along with direct access to suites for suite holders
  • Design enhancements to the east plaza, which is north of Market Street, with integrated access to stadium functions including concessions and restrooms to extend the fan experience and promote non-game-day community experiences within the stadium district
  • New restaurant and concession areas for fans with views of the game, as well as to the city in the north corners of the stadium
  • Newly added pitch-level loge boxes that combine the intimacy of stadium box seats and upscale amenities of an executive suite
  • Upper-level outdoor terraces with views of the field and the downtown St. Louis skyline

As a part of the stadium district design vision, all four sides of the stadium will be open and inclusive, with no back door or back-of-house.

“The stadium design will provide our fans with an incredible amount of game-day variety, compelling sightlines, and high energy — from pitch-level loge boxes to upper-level outdoor terraces and everywhere in between,” said Matt Sebek, Chief Experience Officer for St. Louis CITY SC.

The team has finished the early construction phase, completing several milestones including mobilizing the site, mass excavating, incorporating the drilled piers, putting in the concrete foundations, and constructing the tunnel. The next major milestone will be the placement of the structural steel into the ground.
