Along with the team, the Pride's business operations will leave its current headquarters in Sunnyvale and will be relocated to the East Bay.
"This is a great opportunity for our team and organization to give ourselves a clear-cut advantage both on and off the field." said Pride General Manager Ilisa Kessler. "Making our home in the 'Heart of the Bay' gives us many more ways to deliver a positive, memorable experience to more fans."
Prior to the Pride's first match at Pioneer Stadium, the field will undergo a extensive renovation that will update the playing surface to turf and install a five-lane all-weather track surrounding the field. Once renovations are complete, the stadium will be configured for a capacity crowd of 5,000 fans.
The renovations to Pioneer Stadium are already underway and are scheduled to be completed by May 15, 2010. A second phase of renovations that will take place at a later date, will update the entrance plaza that will welcome fans to the state of the art facility.
The two-year-old stadium at CVHS offers a comparable playing surface and fan experience to what will be offered at CSU East Bay.
