What gives this stadium its distiniction is that it was the first
soccer specific stadium built specifically for the MLS, while other
teams were still cobbling working arrangements with football
facilities as mixed use ventures. The stadium still holds up
nicely, since its opening in 1999.
Since the team's arrival in 2007, they've had little success on the
pitch prior to 2016, but nonetheless have enjoyed huge fan
support here in a city with many European roots and
communities. BMO Field underwent a top to bottom renovation
and expansion in tie for the 2016 season which expanded
capacity to almost 40,000 seats.
||RED BULL ARENA
HARRISON, NEW JERSEY
NEW YORK RED BULLS
The old NY/NJ Metrostars have their very own home, and what a
home it is. Red Bull Arena is the perfect, size, the perfect
configuration, and has an almost Euro feel in terms of the crowd
and game day ambience. Located just a short shuttle ride from
Newark Penn Station, with the Newark skyline easily visible off
in the distance.
||CENTURY LINK FIELD
SEATTLE SOUNDERS FC
Sharing the stadium with the NFL Seahawks, the crowds here
are big, robust, and game day presentation is about as close to
that of a Euro experience as we have seen anywhere. The
venue is on the south side of downtown and steps from Pioneer
Square and city attractions.
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA
VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC
The stadium has seen a lot of upgrades, and all for the good,
replacing the air supported roof with a cable stayed structure to
allow natural light yet provide weather protection. The stadium is
also home to CFL football.
