PHOENIX – Phoenix Rising FC hopes 2021 is about more than just improved play on the field. The organization said it is committed to a better fan experience, too.
A club that advanced to the USL Championship in 2020 – before it was canceled because multiple Tampa Bay players tested positive for COVID-19 – also added new players in the offseason, including on Monday winger Prince Saydee, 24, who was mostly recently with Miami FC. But the biggest headline of the offseason so far has been the Rising’s decision to move from Casino Arizona Field to a new stadium at the Gila River Indian Community’s Wild Horse Pass in Chandler.
The stadium will have a 35% capacity increase from the 6,200 of its previous home, permanent bathrooms, paved parking with multiple entrances and exits, a double-sided video screen, more practice fields and improved family and VIP experiences.
