Tampa Bay Women’s Pro Soccer Team looks to expand waterfront stadium for temporary home (RENDERINGS)

Tampa Bay’s women’s pro soccer team has announced that it will seek a partnership with Hillsborough County Public Schools to play its first seasons in an upgraded, and expanded, waterfront stadium, in Downtown Tampa, which it would share with Howard W. Blake High School.

Super League Tampa Bay would provide permanent upgrades to the stadium, which is located along the Hillsborough River, in Tampa’s West River neighborhood.

A proposal by school district staff, and the team, to establish the partnership will go before the Hillsborough County School Board for a vote on October 17.

“The spirit of competition is very strong in us but so is the spirit of community. Our team is ready to deliver a positive impact that benefits families in Tampa Bay and this partnership would elevate everyone,” said Christina Unkel, Super League Tampa Bay President.

If the School Board approves the partnership, the team will pay for enhancements to the stadium, increasing its capacity from 1,800 to around 5,000, installing new FIFA-approved turf and other upgrades that will be identified as plans are completed.

Games are scheduled to be played primarily on Saturday nights, with the team holding its daily training at its Ybor City training facility.
