The repeating angular metal fin exterior represents the ‘body,’ or the players’ athleticism. The signature roof canopy mimics the long floating arc of a soccer ball as it soars across the field. Its polycarbonate panels create an intimate, yet grand scale. The canopy covers every seat in the stadium and also adds to the game experience by amplifying crowd noise.
