Cleveland Soccer Stadium

The future home of professional outdoor soccer in Northeast Ohio will seat 12,000-13,000, prioritize public transportation and be the first public-private investment in women's sports. Welcome home, soccer.

Build the beautiful game a home.

Picture this: it's 2026 and you're sitting in a new soccer stadium, in Cleveland (!), watching your favorite team kick-off on opening day.

Cleveland's soccer stadium will be home to our future women's professional soccer team and our MLS NEXT Pro (men's) team, and host other local teams and events. It's an essential piece of our NWSL bid — and you can help make it happen.

It's (past) time to invest in women's sports

As Parity Now puts it: fans are into it, more fans are coming, and investing in women's sports is the equitable and right thing to do.

Cleveland's soccer stadium, which will be built specifically for our women's pro team, will be the first public-private investment in women's sports and the only investment of its kind in Ohio. We're excited to lead the way.

Women playing soccer


When Cleveland Pro Soccer announced the city's MLS NEXT Pro (men's) team in November 2022, bidding for a women's professional soccer team was the natural next step.

Two teams — a women's team and a men's team — was always our vision. Once the NWSL announced that it was expanding, we started building our bid to bring a women's pro soccer team to Cleveland.

What do you mean by bid?

We're presenting the business case that Northeast Ohio is the right market for a women's professional soccer team. It includes our financials, where the team will play, our vision for the greater impact on Northeast Ohio and why this region is the right market to make this team successful.

A HUGE part of that presentation is fan support. That's why we're asking people, like you, to make a ticket pledge. Help us show the NWSL tangible evidence that Northeast Ohio is ready to fill this stadium and support this team!

Why Cleveland?

Cleveland fans are renowned for our devotion. We show up. We bleed our team's colors. And despite our mid-market size, Cleveland is a Top 10 Pro Sports City. Yet: we've been the only major sports market without a professional outdoor soccer team.

What is the NWSL?

The National Women's Soccer League is a professional women's soccer league at the top of the United States league system. It's the fastest-growing professional sports league in the United States. Media coverage and women's sports are growing because there's a demand, a drive, a love for these teams, athletes and sports.

And we want to see make this happen in Cleveland.
