A new professional soccer stadium planned for Des Moines, Iowa, has been delayed until 2025. 

The Iowa Soccer Development Foundation announced Monday that the Pro Iowa Stadium and Global Plaza has been delayed due to supply chain and cost challenges. 

In January, the foundation announced it had signed a franchise agreement to bring a professional United Soccer League team to Des Moines.

“When we began this initiative, we dreamed of a stadium and gathering space for soccer fans and community members from all backgrounds to unite and celebrate the world’s game,” Charley Campbell, Iowa Soccer Development Foundation secretary, said in a news release obtained by KCCI. “We have a lot of positive momentum right now. And now that a formal franchise agreement has been signed, plans are well underway for construction of the stadium and plaza. A 2025 opening date aligns with our goal to deliver a facility that fits with the vision for downtown Des Moines, supports the cultural vibrancy of the region and leverages Iowa’s rich soccer history."

Planners had originally aimed to have the project complete in 2024. 

“As we reevaluated the construction timeline — factoring in supply chain and cost challenges, remediation of the DICO site and conversations with vendors — we determined that a 2025 opening date is more reasonable. This gives us the best possible chance for the team to play a full season,” Campbell said.
