The USL Championship club has announced that their state-of-the-art venue will be named Weidner Field when it opens for the club’s 2021 season.
Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC President, Nick Ragain, said:
It’s a special day as we are commemorating this stadium as Weidner Field. The value that Weidner Apartment Homes team brings to this development, to the franchise, and to the city goes far beyond our walls. We’re very excited to officially name this Weidner Field.
The stadium is set to be the highest elevated professional stadium in the USL Championship and the United States at 6,035ft.
Greg Cerbana, Weidner Apartment Homes’ Vice President of Government Affairs, said:
On behalf of Dean Weidner and the 1,800 team members of our company, we are thrilled to extend our stadium naming rights sponsorship with the Switchbacks FC at the USL Championship’s newest stadium right here in Colorado Springs. Weidner Field will be one of the most exciting places in all of Southern Colorado to experience live sporting events, attend business meetings, dine on exceptional local cuisine, and host private events.
This beautiful venue was purposefully built to take advantage of the natural surroundings of the front range, and our intent is to add to the significant momentum already underway in Southwest Downtown. In the very near future, Weidner Field will be the anchor of an exciting destination district where people will live, work, play and enjoy all that an urban lifestyle has to offer.
The Switchbacks recently unveiled a new flythrough video – produced by 3D Digital Venue – of its new 8,000-seat, 145,500SF downtown stadium, Weidner Field.
Construction on the venue, part of the City for Champions project throughout the city, has continued throughout the year, with the club having hosted a ceremony for the installation of the final beam in May.
The state-of-the-art facility is scheduled to open in the 2021 USL Championship season.
