This week, Inter Miami CF announced the progress on its stadium and training facilities are on schedule.
In March 2020, Inter Miami CF will take the field with the full roster in a new 18,000-capacity stadium anchoring the Club’s 46-acre facilities in Fort Lauderdale.
But for now, 250 construction professionals are on-site fulltime preparing the facilities for Inter Miami CF’s opening season in Major League Soccer.
To date, the stadium has gone vertical with all-steel columns on the east side and half along the west. The crew will begin installing components of the secondary frame of the metal building next week, along with the horizontal structural members that will provide lateral support for wall panels. Upon completion by end of November, the crew will begin seating installations.
“All eyes are on March 2020,” said Jurgen Mainka, the chief business officer for Inter Miami CF. “We are grateful for the professionals who are working around the clock, to help us launch our team in facilities and a stadium our community will be proud of.”
The training facilities at Fort Lauderdale will welcome players from around the world for preseason for both the MLS and recently announced USL League One team, which will serve as a feeder system for the development Academy. Steel, concrete, and roofing for the 50,000-square-foot building are currently in progress.
Inter Miami’s Academy, who is leading scoreboards across all age divisions in their inaugural season, will also transition to the training complex upon opening, which houses four main locker rooms with the First Team occupying a sleek 1,740 square-foot room.
The Club’s 200+ players will also benefit from a full kitchen and cafeteria, lounge and classroom, weight room and performance lab, hydrotherapy and treatment rooms as well as tactics rooms and boot rooms.
