Designs by HOK for a new riverfront NFL stadium in downtown St. Louis, Mo., have been unveiled.

In a statement released by HOK, retractable seating in the corners will allow the stadium to be used for FIFA or Major League Soccer matches, as it expands the field to a FIFA-regulated 120 yards long and 75 yards wide. In addition to sporting events, the stadium will be an “amphitheater-style setting for concerts.”

The designs were presented by a taskforce appointed by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon to league executives and a committee of team owners at the NFL’s headquarters in New York City earlier this week.

Hunt Construction Group/Clayco will serve as the construction manager for the project, leading a joint venture branded HCKL with St. Louis-based firms Kai Design & Build and Legacy Building Group.

According to the developer’s representative, John Loyd, HCKL will comply with the task force’s mandate of targeting a workforce employing 25% MBE contractors, 5% woman-owned firms, and 3% disabled veterans.
