ABOUT THE PROJECT

The stadium has an open plaza, where those passing by can see inside, since the field is 8 feet below street level. With a seating capacity of 25,000, the field is grass and with canopies over fans to protect them from the elements and to increase noise levels. A four times life size lion sculpture was planned overlook the entrance. Just before a game begins, the lion would have rotate 180° to "watch" the action. A festival plaza lined with palm trees on the south end of the plaza, just outside the main entrance at Church Street and Terry Avenue was built (the streets are closed to vehicles during events). A balcony-style bar just below the video scoreboard with a 360° view was planned as well. A seating section on the north end is dedicated to members of supporters' clubs. As proposed — and if building codes allow — it has no seats, but rails and extra room for "safe standing". The supporters' section would also have its own "pub-style" area.
