The club is set to break ground on the new Railyards Stadium in the Fall of 2020, officially commencing construction on the 20,000+ seat soccer-specific venue. Republic FC is also planning development on a stadium preview center, in which fans will be invited to learn about the different seating options offered at Railyards Stadium, with first priority going to our Members.
