New England Revolution - new training center - front view

An increasingly impressive array of training facilities have been opened up across Major League Soccer in recent years. The investment in training facilities by MLS owners has been nearly as impressive as the one made into building soccer-specific stadiums.


Since 2017 at least $415 million has been poured into training facilities across the league. That figure is also without numbers for the facilities built by New York City FC and Orlando City SC. Columbus Crew SC have also announced plans to build a new facility that should be ready for 2021 and Nashville SC should have one of their own in the near future.
