Plans have been submitted for a $130m (£102m/€120m) revamp of Toyota Stadium, home of Major League Soccer club FC Dallas.

The project would include 130,000 square feet of premium products, including clubs and suites, as well as new broadcast and press working spaces that meet MLS guidelines, according to plans filed with the State of Texas.

The application, which was submitted earlier this week, was first reported by the Dallas Business Journal. The project also includes new sports lighting incorporated into a new canopy system.

A source close to the club told the Dallas Business Journal that the application marks the first step towards a “potentially bigger” project announcement, but no further details were provided.

If approved, the work could begin in January 2025 and be completed by August 2027. HKS has been listed as the design firm for the project.

Toyota Stadium opened in 2005 and has a capacity of 19,000. Toyota has sponsored the stadium since 2013.

The stadium is located in the Dallas suburb of Frisco. AT&T Stadium, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, will be a host venue during the 2026 FIFA World Cup and Toyota Stadium is expected to serve as a base camp for the tournament.
