First look at new 2026 Northwest Arkansas USL Championship stadium

With a Northwest Arkansas USL Championship team planned for the 2026 season, we have a first look at stadium rendering for the team’s proposed home at Pinnacle Hills in Rogers.

The expandable 5,000-seat stadium will feature a safe-standing supporters’ section directly behind the goal on the north end. Still to come: the results of a name-the-team contest and a more detailed look at the Northwest Arkansas USL Championship stadium features.

“This stadium represents so much more than the culmination of our dreams for a top-tier soccer experience; it’s a tangible manifestation of our community’s collective spirit and aspirations,” said Chris Martinovic, co-founder of USL Arkansas, via press release. “Our vision is to create an inclusive, dynamic space where every individual in Northwest Arkansas—regardless of age, background, or interest—can come together to celebrate, engage, and create lifelong memories. It’s not just a venue; it’s the future beating heart of our community where unique, enriching experiences await us all.” 

“Strategically positioned in the vibrant core of the Pinnacle Hills Entertainment District, our carefully planned stadium goes beyond the conventional concept of a sports venue,” said Warren Smith, co-founder of USL Arkansas, via press release. “We’ve focused on curating a unique experience that keeps fans coming back for more. This isn’t just another stop on your itinerary; it’s an all-encompassing destination, a cornerstone of community life that captures the essence of what Northwest Arkansas has to offer both in sport and entertainment.”
