USL Arkansas has unveiled renderings of its planned stadium that will be located in Pinnacle Hills, with the organization aiming to bring USL Championship and Super League clubs to Northwest Arkansas in 2026.

ROGERS, Ark. – USL Arkansas on Tuesday unveiled preliminary stadium renderings for the USL Championship and Super League clubs the organization is aiming to bring to Pinnacle Hills in Northwest Arkansas for the 2026 season.

The renderings provide a glimpse into USL Arkansas’s vision for a state-of-the-art, multifunctional community hub designed not only to be the heart and soul of soccer in Northwest Arkansas but also a vibrant gathering place for various forms of large-scale events and entertainment. 

The stadium will initially feature a capacity of 5,000 seats with room for expansion as the community grows. 

“This stadium represents so much more than the culmination of our dreams for a top-tier soccer experience; it’s a tangible manifestation of our community’s collective spirit and aspirations,” said Chris Martinovic, co-founder of USL Arkansas. Our vision is to create an inclusive, dynamic space where every individual in Northwest Arkansas—regardless of age, background, or interest—can come together to celebrate, engage, and create lifelong memories. It’s not just a venue; it’s the future beating heart of our community where unique, enriching experiences await us all.” 

The venue is set to feature a “Safe-Standing” supporters’ section that will be located directly behind the goal on the north end and will set stands as close to the pitch as possible to create a vibrant and intimate atmosphere.

The stadium will also offer accessible seating options to accommodate everyone in the NWA community, with the organization’s strategic location in Pinnacle Hills providing both convenience and an invitation to explore surrounding entertainment opportunities that will enrich the complete fan experience from dawn to dusk.

“Strategically positioned in the vibrant core of the Pinnacle Hills Entertainment District, our carefully planned stadium goes beyond the conventional concept of a sports venue,” said Warren Smith, co-founder of USL Arkansas. “We’ve focused on curating a unique experience that keeps fans coming back for more. This isn’t just another stop on your itinerary; it’s an all-encompassing destination, a cornerstone of community life that captures the essence of what Northwest Arkansas has to offer both in sport and entertainment.”
