About Exploria Stadium
One of the newest, largest, and most popular soccer-specific stadiums built in North America in recent years, Exploria Stadium is a gorgeous, modern open-air arena nestled in downtown Orlando, Florida, making it the perfect venue for catching a soccer match any time, day or night!
History of Exploria Stadium
First opening its doors in 2017 after years of delays and red tape runaround, Exploria Stadium has been a resounding success ever since. In fact, it took more than four years for this venue to be built, with the City of Orlando buying the land that Exploria Stadium was destined to be built on back in 2013. Funding problems notwithstanding, Exploria Stadium was ready to rock in time for Major League Soccer’s 2017 season right on time.
What’s So Special About Exploria Stadium Events?
Exploria Stadium, as one of the newest arenas around, has some great cutting-edge amenities that make it a great place to take in a soccer match. While it’s true that there haven’t been much in the way of other types of events like music concerts held at this arena yet, you can sit in comfort thanks to the canopies set up over seating areas designed to keep you cool on even the hottest of Orlando afternoons. The unique stadium design also features a playing field that’s recessed by eight feet and an open plaza that offers clear sightlines from outside the arena itself, making it fun and exciting even if you’re just passing by. You won’t find that anywhere else but at Exploria Stadium!
