Oklahoma Mulls Over 2 Options For A New Soccer Stadium

Sports fans will undoubtedly enjoy a new experience if sports stadiums have a custom map illustration that can help with way-finding. During match days, thousands of fans make their way to the stadium and things can get pretty stressful. A custom map illustration of a stadium can be studied at home so that fans can determine different points of interest like merchandise stalls and food and drinks vendors.

Two options are being considered by the Oklahoma City Council for a proposed soccer/multi-use stadium. One of the considerations is for $37 million to $42 million with more or less 8,000 seats. The capacity is ideal for mid-level concerts, state high school football championships, boxing events and cultural festivities. The regulation-size field could host soccer, lacrosse, rugby and American football.

The second option is for $67 million to $72 million with 10,000 seats. It can host 18,000 people for concerts with a roof or shade structure over the seating. There are two stages with the bigger one for concerts and the smaller one for more intimate events.

A multi-use soccer stadium can address some of the biggest challenges like the lack of complimentary pieces in and around the present location at Taft Stadium. Parking is a big problem and concessionaires are not allowed to cook in the venue. Entrance and exit are also serious challenges. There is no regulation-size pitch that can provide an authentic soccer experience.

It is pretty obvious that the Producers Cooperative Oil Mill property would be a good location for a stadium; however, there is also the 7-acre Wheeler Park. If they could find a way to make everything work, the Strawberry Fields west of Scissortail Park would be a good option. The most pressing issue is the league because the United States Soccer Organization will no longer tolerate the present location due to its field size.

In a stadium with 10,000 capacity, it will be difficult for fans to find their way unless there is map for directions. Meanwhile, a custom map illustration will be more interesting to sports fans because it is created in an informative and skillful way using color, style and a human’s point of view.
