Mansfield, Texas - The City of Mansfield announced a partnership with REV Sports Management, the sister company of REV Entertainment, as well as FC Dallas, to serve as the operator of the Multi-Use Soccer Stadium complex in Mansfield.

Mansfield City Council officially approved the operating agreement during its February 12 city council meeting.

REV Sports Management will serve as the operator of the venue upon completion, as well as the design and construction consultant throughout the design and construction phase. REV Sports Management has partnered with FC Dallas to deliver a world-class experience to Mansfield.

In this role, FC Dallas will assist in the design and construction phase of the stadium. FC Dallas will also lead efforts to program all sports programming at the facility, including youth soccer and international tournaments.

The multi-purpose stadium is expected to open by 2026.

In addition to the stadium, the proposed 250-acre Harvest Point development includes residential, retail, family entertainment, hotel and conference center and entertainment venues.

"We know the stadium project has the potential to be the evolution of Mansfield's relationship with sports from a destination for youth athletics to professional action," Mayor Michael Evans said. "In order to make sure the stadium delivers the all-star experience the community expects, it only makes sense that we would team up with such decorated and experienced organizations in REV Sports Management and FC Dallas."

"Through this partnership this stadium will be home for various sports from day one," Mansfield City Manager Joe Smolinski said. "The teamwork between City Council, REV Sports Management, and FC Dallas is an exciting look at our collaboration going forward to bring elite athletics and entertainment to Mansfield."

"We are thrilled to work together with the City of Mansfield and our friends at FC Dallas to bring a state-of-the-art multi-purpose stadium to Mansfield," said Sean Decker, President of REV Entertainment. "The Mansfield community is one we are proud to be part of and look forward to bringing both soccer and entertainment to the community. We are excited to work alongside Mansfield residents, business leaders and city leaders on the stadium."

"We're excited to partner with REV Sports Management and the City of Mansfield to bring more soccer fields and training facilities to North Texas," said FC Dallas Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Smith. "With the FIFA World Cup© coming to the region in 2026, it's important to give our communities access to fields with quality soccer programming that will help introduce them to the sport and nurture their love of the beautiful game."

REV Sports Management, FC Dallas and the City of Mansfield are currently working alongside the design team for initial development of the stadium. Additional announcements will be made in the coming months, including a timeline, renderings, and additional operations.
