MLS Commissioner Don Garber attends Philadelphia stadium launch

Keystone Sports and Entertainment, LLC, CEO and Operating Partner Nick Sakiewicz and MLS Commissioner Don Garber were just a couple of the many VIP's that attended the ground breaking for Philadelphia's new stadium. The new stadium is the centerpiece of a $500 million entertainment, retail, residential and commercial development covering more than 100 acres along the historic Delaware River waterfront.

"We met 13 years ago to bring a franchise to the Philadelphia area," Sakiewicz said. "It took longer than we expected, but we got it done. Thirteen years is a long time to wait, but it was sure worth the wait. We're sure of that."

The multi-purpose stadium will feature an 11,000-square-foot-club, 30 suites, a built-in concert stage for world-class music shows and a special 2,000-seat zone for the Sons of Ben supporters club. The new structure will also have a waterfront park and plaza used not only stadium entry, but also for city sponsored events such as festivals.
