TQL Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio
A soccer specific stadium holding 26,000, the stadium was built for MLS team FC Cincinnati.
Located in the West End on the the former site of Stargel Stadium, the stadium cost about $250 million to construct.
The stadium was proposed in 2016, as part of the team’s bid for an MLS franchise that was awarded in 2018, when the build began.
The club also funded $6.2 million in West End improvements and $10 million for a new high school football stadium, in addition to $25 million to Cincinnati Public Schools as part of the land use agreement. Infrastructure improvements around the stadium will be paid for using $34 million in city funds.
On April 21, 2021, Total Quality Logistics (TQL) was named as the naming rights sponsor of the stadium by FC Cincinnati, having come to a long-term agreement with the club.
TQL Stadium opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 1, 2021, and hosted its first regular season match on May 16, between FC Cincinnati and InterMiami.
