New York City FC have revealed the latest computer-generated images of how they expect their incredible new stadium to look once it is built in Queens, New York.
NYFC is planning to build a permanent home stadium at Willets Point in Flushing, directly across from the New York Mets ballpark, Citi Field.
The 25,000-seat stadium is expected to cost around $780million -privately financed- and would be built soccer-specific.
Images of the planned stadium show a sleek, modern and minimalistic design with the majority of the building in black and white with accents of the team’ signature blue around the entrance and signage.
It also appears that the stadium’s eventual name will be displayed not only in traditional positions along the side but also along the roof so it can be seen as planes enter and exit the nearby LaGuardia Airport.

NYFC sent out the stadium update along with the newly released in an email to fans on Monday.
‘We hope this note finds you well. We wanted to share some truly exciting news about our stadium project,’ the message began.
‘After many positive meetings with Queens Community Board 7, local stakeholders and residents, elected officials, labor unions and more, we’re excited to inform you that today, our stadium project, alongside the entire second phase of the Willets Point development, has officially entered the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) approval process, bringing us one HUGE step closer to seeing our dream realized of building a permanent home for NYCFC!’
‘As a reminder, ULURP is the process that proposed development projects in New York City go through that engages the local community and grants approval to begin construction. The ULURP process is time-restricted, meaning the entire approval process is designed to take no longer than 7 months.’
‘Today, the Department of City Planning presented our project to the City Planning Commission at a CPC review session. During the meeting, the presenters shared some updated images of our proposed stadium project that we’re equally excited to share with you as well.’
The stadium would also be only a stone’s throw away from Arthur Ashe Stadium, where the US Open is played.
