SACRAMENTO, Calif. (April 2, 2019) — Sacramento Republic FC released today new renderings for the club’s proposed Major League Soccer stadium in the Downtown Railyards.
“The new renderings demonstrate our continued forward progress on our MLS bid and how much work is taking place behind the scenes,” said Republic FC President & COO Ben Gumpert. “The additions to the existing stadium design provide an even better fan experience, including 360-degree circulation and lookout points from our stadium to our river and our downtown skyline. This has always been about building something that showcases the best of Sacramento and that remains core to our design.”
The renderings released today stem from work led by the club’s new lead investor Ron Burkle and his business partner, Matt Alvarez. These additional updates to the stadium design expand on the shovel-ready proposal developed and enabled under current Republic FC owner Kevin Nagle, who has led the organization since 2017. Among the enhancements are the addition of a 360-degree concourse pedestrian walkway, new canopy-level seating on the west side of the stadium and expanded field-level seating options.
Republic FC’s proposed MLS stadium would anchor a 31-acre parcel within the Downtown Railyards located east of 7th Street. The site also includes plans for an entertainment district adjacent to the stadium to extend use beyond game days for fans and visitors year-round. If awarded an expansion slot by MLS, Republic FC could begin construction on the stadium immediately with an estimated completion date in 2021.
Republic FC continue their 2019 USL Championship season this Saturday, April 6, at home against Austin Bold FC. Kickoff at Papa Murphy’s Park is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
