NYCFC’s New $780M Stadium Will Be Ready By 2027

New York City’s first soccer-specific stadium is becoming a reality.

New York City FC has selected HOK as architect and Turner Construction Company as general contractor for a 25,000-seat stadium in the Willets Point neighborhood of Queens. The project is expected to cost $780 million and be completely privately funded.

NYCFC is working with the Queens Development Group to build up the surrounding area, including 2,500 units of affordable housing, a 650-seat new public school, a hotel, and open recreation space.

With the city on board — to the tune of a 49-year, $4 million-per-year lease — and the architect and contractor selected, the club can begin the process of breaking ground on the stadium, which is expected to be ready in time for the 2027 MLS season.

The team will forgo real estate taxes as part of its deal with the city.

HOK has previously designed Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, and Little Caesars Arena in Detroit — as well as the brand-new CityPark, home to MLS’ St. Louis SC.

NYCFC has been searching for a permanent home since its founding in 2013. The club primarily plays matches at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, but has played games across the New York metro area, including at Citi Field in Queens and Red Bull Arena in New Jersey.
