Announced in September 2022, a major renovation project has begun at PNC Stadium to ensure the stadium is ready in time for the 2023 season. Headlining the project will be the installation of all-new mesh seats throughout the entire seating bowl, which will make PNC Stadium the first soccer-specific stadium in America with mesh seating throughout the building. Additionally, a portion of the east side of the stadium will be reconfigured to create a new air-conditioned, premium all-inclusive club area (the “East Club”).
The new mesh seats, produced by 4Topps and DreamSeat, are up to 30 degrees cooler than traditional stadium seats. Each of the new seats will include a cupholder and armrests, creating a significantly improved overall experience for guests at all PNC Stadium events. Seats in the new East Club will feature premium high-backed mesh seats from 4Topps.

Seats in the new East Club, which will include the three centermost sections of the east sideline lower level and hold a capacity of 824 guests, will open into a climate-controlled club area where guests can enjoy an all-inclusive experience with premium food options and a dedicated bar serving beer, wine and cocktails along with non-alcoholic beverages. The East Club will also feature nine loge boxes, which offer individuals and companies the opportunity to entertain guests in a semi-private space with access to all of the all-inclusive benefits of the East Club. Each loge box seats eight guests.
“One of the first things that we identified when I came on board last year was that we needed a wider variety of options for our fans to experience our stadium, particularly in a market as large as Houston,” Segal said. “The East Club effectively doubles our luxury hospitality options and adds another climate-controlled space inside the stadium for our fans who want a more premium experience.”
Seating throughout the new East Club, as well as the existing PNC Club seats on the west side of the stadium, will be AirFlow Mesh Suite Seats designed and installed by 4Topps. The remainder of the seats installed in the lower level will be AirFlow Mesh Row Seats designed by 4Topps, while the upper level of the stadium will feature the new Ovation Airo mesh seat from DreamSeats.
The project represents the second stage of improvements to the facility under Segal’s leadership and a continuation of his sustained investment in all facets of the organization, on and off the playing field.
