Description: Louisville City Stadium
The first stadium Louisville City FC will call their own is about to be built just east of downtown, alongside the city’s largest highway hub. It will replace a large auto parts depot and become one of the catalysts of revitalization for this derelict part of Butchertown district.
Altogether 5 plots of 40 acres (16 hectares) are earmarked for the development. The site is notably located just 770 meters east of LouCity’s first professional ground (though baseball-specific), Slugger Field.
Capacity of the single-tiered stands was set at 10,000 in starting layout. This should suffice for 3rd league needs of LouCity, but also leaves enough room for the club to grow and reach MLS level by bringing the capacity up by 7-10,000 additional seats.
Louisville: Support for Butchertown stadium plan
Chants could be heard around Butchertown and even Louisville's top leader showed his support. “Build the stadium,” Mayor Greg Fischer said. WHAS11 report.
