Cost of New MLS Stadiums


1. Red Bull Arena (2010) - $220M ($235M today)
2. Sporting Park (2011) - $165M ($207M today)
3. Dick's Sporting Goods Park (2007) - $131M ($153M today)
4. PPL Park (2010) - $115M ($129M today)
5. Rio Tinto Stadium (2008) - $112M ($122M today)
6. BBVA Compass Stadium (2012) - $110M ($111M today)
7. Toyota Park (2006) - $98M ($120M today)
8. Home Depot Center (2003) - $88M ($130M today)
9. FC Dallas Park (2005) - $80M ($104M today)
10. Columbus Crew Stadium (1999) - $29M ($48M today)

Note: costs are for stadium only and do not include peripheral projects that are part of the complex. For example, the Home Depot Center includes dozens of other sporting fields that are part of the complex; the complex cost $150M but the soccer stadium cost $88M. Also, the cost of the stadium in today's dollars are specific to that area of the country and dependent on numerous local rather than national factors. Constructions costs are below the national average in places like Houston, Dallas, and Salt Lake City while Philadelphia, Chicago, and New York are anywhere from 13% to 17% above the national average.

The renovations of BMO Field, Saputo Stadium, and Jeld-Wen Field cost $63M, $40M, and $31M respectively.

Future stadiums:

1. New MLS club at Corona Park in Queens: $300M
2. DC United at Buzzard Point in Washington: $157M
3. New England Revs at Assembly Square in Somerville: $130M
4. San Jose Earthquakes at Airport West in San Jose: $60M

The Earthquakes new stadium is currently under construction.

Orlando City just secured funding for a $105M stadium in downtown Orlando.

The Cosmos claim they can build a $400M stadium at Belmont Park out on Long Island.

Neither of these have seen ground broken at their proposed sites, let alone been approved for construction.

Buzzard Point and DC United are supposedly close to a deal, but still awaiting confirmation.

The Queens stadium has yet to be formally approved as well.

Still, those are the numbers they are working with.

I still think the United are more likely to end up in Baltimore than building a soccer specific stadium in DC. The DC Council already got burned by Nationals Park, and now they are gearing up to bring the Redskins back when their lease is up in 2027.

DC passed an ordinance stating that the Redskins have to change their name to move back in the District.

I thought the whole idea behind NY2 was to have a club with some presence in the actual city? Why would the cosmos build a stadium in Long Island?

Because Garber and MLS have no intention of the Cosmos being NY2.

So the Cosmos have said F u Garber, we'll build our own stadium and then let's see you try to keep us out.

Garber and MLS are pushing harder to get the Corona Park stadium in Queens officially approved. Bloomberg endorsed it and the three largest unions in NYC just endorsed it recently. All that stands in the way are a couple of concerned citizen groups and council voices.
