Highmark Stadium broke ground on June 25, 2012. It was completed on April 13, 2013 at a total cost of $10.2 million raised entirely through private investment.
The home of the Pittsburgh Riverhounds professional and Under-23 development teams boasts a seating capacity of 3,500 with additional standing space raising its capacity to about 4,000 for soccer games.
Highmark Stadium is located at Station Square on Pittsburgh’s South Side, overlooking the city’s downtown skyline from across the Monongahela River. Its breathtaking views provide a stunning backdrop to any athletic event, connect, festival or private function.
The venue is surrounded by a variety of restaurants, hotels and nightlife.
Pittsburgh International Airport is a 20-mile drive west of the stadium along the I-376 freeway.
