By Jameson DicksonThe US Soccer Stadium was supposed to open in 2019, but the first games in 2020 are set to be played on July 6, 2021, according to the US Soccer Federation.
The stadium is currently under construction in the Los Angeles suburb of Carson.
The first match of the 2021 US Open Cup will be played there on April 29, 2022, when the US women’s team plays the New York Cosmos at StubHub Center in Carson.US Soccer said in a statement to ESPN FC on Thursday that “the stadium’s construction schedule is subject to significant and complex design and construction requirements.”
The USSF said the stadium is scheduled to open at a later date.
“The stadium was designed to support soccer in a way that is consistent with the development and development of the sport in the United States,” the statement said.
“There will be a number of significant construction projects during the construction phase, including the addition of a new training facility, the renovation of the stadium, and the construction of a parking structure.”
As a result of the completion of these projects, the stadium will open in 2021.
“During the 2020-21 construction period, the USSF expects to work closely with the LA Galaxy, the Los Alamitos Sports Complex, and other stakeholders to ensure that the stadium’s performance meets or exceeds expectations for its intended purpose.”
We are very excited about the stadium and look forward to welcoming US fans to the city.
“The stadium has been in the works since 2014, when a consortium led by Chinese conglomerate Zhejiang Group signed a 50-year lease on the land in Carson, a city of more than 20 million people in central California.
