A 25,000-Seat Soccer Stadium is Coming to Queens

Get a sneak peek of the latest plans and renderings. 🏟 ⚽️

by New York Bucket List


Last November, the city of New York and the New York City Football Club (NYCFC) reached a deal to build a new soccer stadium in Queens. After nearly six months, an architect and design have been nailed down, and earlier this month, the first renderings of the new stadium were released.

Founded in 2013, the NYCFC has played most of its games at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. The new 25,000-seat venue will be the city’s first-ever soccer-specific stadium and will be located in the Willets Point area, a once largely industrial neighborhood.

The stadium is part of a larger development project along the waterfront that will include housing and a 250-room hotel. Its construction will be an integral part of transforming the underutilized area. Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, will be across the street, and the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, which hosts the U.S. Open, is nearby.

Soccer has gained more popularity in the US in recent years, and cities like Cincinnati, Austin, and Nashville have also opened soccer stadiums. The NYCFC hopes that having a soccer stadium in the city will make soccer a bigger part of the community and grant access to more fans. The stadium is expected to be completed in 2027.
