Description: North Carolina FC Stadium
New stadium for North Carolina FC would stand north of downtown Raleigh, along Peace Street. This location provides significant advantages, being partly within downtown, enbling mass road and rail capacity for supporters.
Along the initial concept presented by Gensler Sports, the stadium would be visually divided into two parts. Its basis would ba a vast, simple and modern plinth. Onto it the architects wish to put an undulating, iconic roof with large transparent portions. Underneath there's room for some 25,000 people, including three tiers in the south, two in the west and a strip of sideline private boxes.
Though part of North Carolina FC's MLS bid, it's not only about the stadium itself. NCFC suggest there would be additional parking, office, retail and residential uses surrounding it. The exact shape of this large project depends on permissions and partnerships, though it's thought the stadium alone will cost no less than $150 million.
MLS expansion: Two more spots open for new teams
As some have speculated, the top division in USA will grow faster than set initially. Instead of 28 teams, the new goal is 30 and already now MLS is the largest league by club number.
North Carolina: Land value may impact MLS proposal
Land under the proposed stadium for North Carolina FC is worth $91 million. It seems inlikely the club would be willing to pay, so finding a suitable public-priave partnership could be key to building the stadium.
