Major League Soccer connects to Hollywood with Filming Locations
All stadiums will be available for filming at www.FilmingLocations.com
Filming Locations, LLC and Major League Soccer have reached a licensing agreement
that will showcase the league's stadiums to the film industry. All 14 MLS venues
are connecting to Hollywood as filming locations via www.FilmingLocations.com
with photo galleries of these state-of-the-art parks.
The unique venues that have been custom-made for MLS teams create an authentic soccer
atmosphere and are ideal locations for filming movies, television shows, commercials,
photo shoots, and music videos. After the League’s inaugural 1996 season, MLS clubs
began building soccer-specific stadiums that borrow design concepts from revered
soccer venues around the world. Seven such facilities, the year they opened, and
the MLS teams that call them home are below:
- Crew Stadium, 1999 - Columbus Crew
- The Home Depot Center, 2003 - LA Galaxy and Chivas USA
- Pizza Hut Park, 2005 - FC Dallas
- Toyota Park, 2006 – Chicago Fire
- Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, 2007 – Colorado Rapids
- BMO Field, 2007 – Toronto FC
- Rio Tinto Stadium, 2008 – Real Salt Lake.
Note: MLS teams with soccer stadiums currently under construction are the New York
Red Bulls, the Kansas City Wizards, and the Philadelphia expansion team that will
begin play in 2010.
