MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota United FC announced Wednesday that Mortenson Construction will be the manager for the team’s new stadium, which will be built in St. Paul.
The 20,000-seat stadium is estimated to cost about $120 million and will be the home for Major League Soccer in Minnesota. Construction is slated to start in 2016, and the stadium will be located at the intersection of Snelling and University Avenues in St. Paul.
The design for the stadium will be done by Populous, a sports architecture and design company based out of Kansas City. Mortenson has worked with Populous on other stadium builds, including Target Field, TCF Bank Stadium and Xcel Energy Center.
Mortenson Construction is also in the middle of work on U.S. Bank Stadium, the new home of the Minnesota Vikings, which will be completed by July 2016.
