2020: The Year of the Venue

January 17, 2020

According to Panstadia & Arena Management, $9 billion in new sports venues will celebrate their grand openings in 2020 in North America alone. Walter P Moore provided structural engineering for two of these new venues set to open in 2020.

Globe Life Field

Globe Life Field, pictured above, will open to fans just in time for the MLB Texas Rangers' 2020 season. Its 230,000 square foot retractable roof will keep fans comfortable for baseball games, concerts, and other special events. The new stadium is the newest addition to Texas Live!, Arlington, Texas's entertainment district consisting of the new Globe Life Field and AT&T stadium.

Lynn Family Stadium

Lynn Family Stadium

Louisville City Football Club's new home, Lynn Family Stadium, is situated in Louisville's Butchertown neighborhood, close enough to downtown to view the skyline from the every seat in its 270 degree "seating bowl." Its copper-clad canopy will keep fans protected from the elements while they enjoy the Midwest's hottest sport: soccer!
