SAMESONG PARK PLANS
ASBURY PARK FOOTBALL CLUB REVEAL VISION FOR PROPOSED WATERFRONT STADIUM
Today, the Asbury Park Football Club took a huge leap forward and revealed its vision for the future of the club by unveiling designs for a proposed boardwalk stadium, SAMESONG Park.
Nestled atop Asbury Park's iconic Convention Hall, the site of legendary performances by The Clash, Johnny Cash, Led Zeppelin, James Brown and American Idol's Ruben Studdard, the proposed 5,000 seat stadium would feature an open-aired seating configuration providing fans with complimentary salty, sea air and stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean.
"Obviously a club with our history deserves a ground of equal stature," says club President Carter Youes-Em. "Under the guidance of our Executive Committee, APFC intends to lobby civic, county and state leaders languorously until we get what we're entitled to as an American sports team. Our tens of supporters worldwide deserve as much."
