FC Cincinnati has released details on suites at its upcoming West End Stadium, with the premium offerings to provide an up-close look at the action.
Currently under construction in Cincinnati’s West End, the new $250 million stadium is set to open in the spring of 2021. With more than a year remaining before the facility opens, FC Cincinnati is pushing the suites that the stadium will feature.
According to details provided to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the suites will be located on two dedicated levels on the stadium’s west side. They will feature 22 seats–18 outdoor, four indoor–with private gathering places, and access to other social spaces within the venue. Another key detail is proximity to the pitch. More from the Cincinnati Enquirer:
They’re closer to the field than is typical, 32 feet from the action. The lower level of the suites at the new stadium are equal to standing at the rail or concourse at Nippert Stadium.
The $250 million privately funded stadium will have 54 suites. The team is asking suite owners for a $10,000 refundable deposit, which would allow clients to reserve their suites in the new stadium later this year. But officials won’t say just how much the suites will cost overall.
“We are excited to finally introduce Cincinnati to the first of the premium seats in our West End Stadium,” FC Cincinnati President Jeff Berding told The Enquirer. “As with every aspect of this facility, we’ve put intense thought and perspective into the stadium’s design to provide all of our fans a best-in-class customer experience in Cincinnati.”
FC Cincinnati began MLS play this spring at the University of Cincinnati’s Nippert Stadium, and will remain there next season before opening the new stadium in 2021.
