FC DALLAS STADIUM
Collin County, Frisco, Texas
Collin County hired CSL International to evaluate the feasibility of a Major League Soccer stadium as one component of a larger sports complex that was envisioned to also include a multi-purpose arena, an indoor soccer facility, an ice center, soccer fields, baseball/softball fields and a health club. In addition to FC Dallas, it was envisioned that the complex would become the home of North Texas Soccer, U.S. Youth Soccer, and the Dallas Cup international youth soccer tournament. Upon completion of the study, CSL assisted Collin County during the negotiation process that led to the financing and construction of the $108 million Pizza Hut Park soccer complex in Frisco, Texas.
The complex was completed in 2005 and includes a 20,000-seat stadium and 17 tournament-quality soccer fields. The complex was funded via a public-private partnership that included contributions from the City of Frisco, Collin County, the Frisco Independent Schools District and the Hunt Sports Group.
