Oklahoma City FC now has a stadium for the 2016 NASL season

Bruce Bennett

Oklahoma CIty FC has working to join the NASL for quite a while now, and took a huge step in that direction on Wednesday. According to the club's website, the future expansion side now has a place to call home.

Oklahoma CIty FC doesn't sound as if it will be the club's eventual name, but that announcement will likely come after the NASL Board of Governors officially approve the move. The club will play their home matches in Yukon, Oklahoma at Miller Stadium. The facility opened in 2011, and currently has a capacity of 6,500. Seating can be expanded to seat as many as 10,000 though, which would seem to be about perfect based on what current NASL attendance figures look like.

Oklahoma City is scheduled to begin play during the 2016 season, along with the expansion side from Virginia. Jacksonville Armada FC will join the league for the 2015 NASL season, and further, aggressive expansion of the league is widely anticipated.
