LAFC Releases New Renderings for Banc of California Stadium
Major League Soccer expansion club Los Angeles FC has been engaging fans with a live construction camera for months. Now LA’s second professional soccer team (along with Carson’s LA Galaxy) has revealed its latest renderings of the finished product for 22,000-seat Banc of California Stadium.
The images, provided by both LAFC and design firm Gensler, show the vision for the field of play, spectator areas, suites, and outward-facing aesthetics as well. Field-level seats will put fans right next to the action along the sideline, while an outer concourse leaves ample room for fans and vendors to enter and exit.
Gensler shows an upper concourse as well, for fans to watch the action from above the goal. The renderings also show suites with elevated tables and bar service. One outdoor club area features a pool in its designs as well.
Banc of California Stadium, which is located right next to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum at the former sight of the LA Memorial Sports Arena, will open in Exposition Park in 2018. LAFC is the only confirmed club to be joining MLS next year. The season will begin in March, with schedules announced in January of 2018.
