ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Orlando City Soccer officials said Friday that their new downtown stadium is expected to be completed by the end of the 2016 season.
Team officials said during an unveiling of the new design for the 25,500-seat stadium that the privately-funded, $155 million facility should be finished in the next 12 to 14 months. That coincides with the final month of next season, or the start of the MLS playoffs.
The team's original plans called for a 19,500-seat stadium that would cost $110 million and be paid for with a mix of public and private funding.
