FC Cincinnati aims for MLS inclusion with Meis-designed stadium

by Matthew Campelli | 13 Jun 2017

Meis Architects, the studio behind the soon-to-be-constructed AS Roma stadium, has unveiled renderings of a 25,000-capacity stadium being designed for Major League Soccer (MLS) hopeful FC Cincinnati.

The plans were unveiled by Dan Meis – founder of Meis Architects – and club owner Carl Lindner III in front of 600 FC Cincinnati season ticket holders.

Three sites have been earmarked for the stadium: Oakley, Newport and West End. However, no formal plans have been submitted yet.

FC Cincinnati is one of a number of franchises bidding to be included in the MLS as an expansion team.

Several eastern cities reasonably close in proximity to Cincinnati – such as St Louis, Nashville, Indianapolis, and Detroit – are also bidding to join the US’s premier soccer competition.

Meis said the design included bowl seating and safe standing zones. Stadium capacity can be expanded to 30,000 if demand is strong enough.

It is expected that FC Cincinnati will attempt to finance the stadium and MLS bid through a public/private financing agreement.
