LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville City FC announced Tuesday that it will partner with AEG Facilities as its venue manager when it moves into its new stadium next year.

AEG Facilities also manages the KFC Yum! Center and many other facilities around the world, including Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin, The O2 in London, and, closer to home, US Bank Arena in Cincinnati.

“We believe our new stadium will be among the best soccer-specific stadiums in the country,” Louisville City FC President Brad Estes said.
