Some news broke over the weekend that LAFC would be revealing their stadium plans on Monday. But one little nugget hidden away in the report from the LA Times was also that of when the club would begin play. Instead of playing in 2017 like everything was originally planned, the club will now kick off their inaugural season in 2018 with a brand new stadium.

LAFC will build a 22,000-seat stadium at Exposition Park on the site where the iconic Sports Arena has stood since opening in 1959.

The Times also reported that the $250-million project will include a conference center, restaurants and a soccer museum.
