Oklahoma City secures a place to play when they join the NASL

Good news

The NASL will continue its western growth next season when it expands to Oklahoma City, and the expansion side will now have a place to call home in 2015. The club has agreed to a deal with Yukon Millers Stadium which will see them playing home matches there for the next several seasons.

Yukon Millers Stadium currently seats about 6,500 fans, but can be expanded to accommodate as many as 12,000. Filling the stadium before it's expanded would place the club among the top half of the league in attendance based on current numbers, while expanding the ground would allow them to have one of the larger crowds in the league.

Oklahoma City are one of three expansion sides expected to be ready to go during the spring season next year, joining Virginia Cavalry and Jacksonville Armada in the (soon to be) 13 team league. Having secured a place to call home, Oklahoma City have probably guaranteed that there won't be any delays.
