Construction on Toyota Field, the new home of the San Antonio Scorpions, is nearly complete, with the field set to open for the Scorpions’ home-opener slated for Saturday, April 13.
The 8,000-seat Toyota Field stadium was created behind the vision of philanthropist Gordon Hartman and his effort to bring professional soccer to San Antonio, while benefiting the special-needs community. All net profits from the Scorpions and Toyota Field go to non-profit Morgan's Wonderland, designed with special-needs individuals in mind.
Toyota Field was initially set to seat 6,100 fans, with phase two and three of construction expanding upon the stadium’s seating capacity; however, phase one of the project incorporated some of the schematics of phase two , adding nearly 2,000 seats to the projected stadium seating capacity.
Toyota Field, which parallels Thousand Oaks Drive across from Morgan's Wonderland, is being constructed with private funding and is ultimately expandable in stages to 18,000 seats, where upper decks will be added to the north and east ends of the stadium in future phases of construction.
Stadium features include a grass playing field built to FIFA and NCAA specifications, luxury suites, a VIP lounge, a team merchandise store, a patio/beer garden, a large video scoreboard and shaded seating on the west side of the stadium.
The San Antonio Scorpions played its 2012 NASL home games in North East Independent School District's 11,000-seat Heroes Stadium at Wurzbach Parkway and Thousand Oaks Drive, across the street from the new site.
The Scorpions had an average attendance of 9,100 in 2012, topping the NASL in average attendance figures. Preston Petri, media relations director for the Scorpions, lauded the support of the San Antonio community, stating that ticket sales for this season have been great across the board.
Construction crews were on-site at Toyota Field on Wednesday, April 3, as they continue finishing the fitting of the inside of the stadium in advance of the start of the 2013 NASL season.
