Louisville FC is heading to Lynn Family Stadium next season, and fans are showing more support than ever as the team broke a new season ticket record.
The team is slated to move into Butchertown’s Lynn Famioly Stadium early next year, and this week, the club announced that the season ticket record has been broken. While Louisville did not disclose the exact number of season ticket members, the team’s director of public relations Howie Lindsey told BizJournals that the number exceeds 5,000. Club president Brad Estes said in a news release that the team’s supporters “continue to set the standard for our league.”
“We fully expected to set a new record for season ticket members as we move into our new home, but to be able to announce a new record this early is a tremendous sign for the future,” Estes said.
Eleven of the stadium’s sections are completely sold out, with several more sections down to 25 tickets left, Louisville FC Vice President of Sales and Marketing Mitch Ried said in the release, noting that the excitement during ticket sales for the USL Championship Final is “a preview of what we expect for next season’s opening game.” When tickets went on sale to the general public for the championship match earlier this month, the game sold out in a little over an hour; more than 7,000 fans attended the game.
Lynn Family Stadium – the $65 million venture that is still under construction – will offer 18 luxury suites, hundreds of club seats, and eight bars, with a capacity of 14,000 including standing sections. The stadium will become the largest soccer-specific stadium operated by a Championship club, overtaking Sacramento Republic FC’s Papa Murphy’s Park, which currently holds 11,569 people.
Tickets range between $16 and $65. For more information about the new season and ticket prices, visit the team’s website.
