Oklahoma City set to build beautiful $71 million downtown soccer stadium

We here at The18 are suckers for a good downtown soccer stadium in the United States. Whether it’s MLS, NWSL or USL, a shiny stadium in the heart of a city hits the same.

Oklahoma City looks to be the latest major U.S. metro area ready to add the beautiful game in the downtown area.

According to reports from Steve Lackmeyer of The Oklahoman and from, the city could have a $71 million stadium by 2027. The capacity is expected to be 10,000 and would serve as the home for USL side OKC Energy FC.

The MAPS 4 multi-purpose stadium would also be used for hosting college soccer games, high school football and other events.

Energy FC are on a bit of a hiatus right now as the club doesn’t have a stadium and field that meets the USL’s standards. The club had competed from 2014 through 2021 with the last five of those years being in the second tier of the U.S. Soccer pyramid.

This new stadium in 2027 would bring the sport back to the city.

Cities in the U.S. having a place for soccer fans to gather and support a local team is a great look for the growth of the sport in this country. Oklahoma City is a prime example of a major metro area in the country — 20th in population behind Denver and ahead of Nashville — getting a new home for soccer.

We’ve covered several other cities raising the level of their soccer stadiums including Indianapolis’ new plans for a stadium and Kansas City getting a stadium for the Current.
