Rio Tinto Stadium, home of the Real Salt Lake soccer club, seats 20,000 people for Major League Soccer and other sporting events, with that capacity increasing to 25,000 for concerts.

The natural grass field boasts a surface area of 130 yards by 90 yards and has been developed to sustain a full slate of diverse sports and entertainment activities. The GTF Kentucky Bluegrass surface and root system is engineered by Graff’s Turf Farm in Ft. Morgan, Colorado, which has worked on such hallowed fields as Wrigley Field, Lambeau Field, Busch Stadium, and Notre Dame Stadium. Laser-graded to 1/100th of an inch across 105,000 square feet, the field was developed specifically for Utah’s high-desert climate to provide optimal growth and durability throughout the entire year.

Stadium amenities include dining concessions, 32 luxury suites, a 2,000 square foot stadium club, 1,000 premium club seats, five locker rooms, a 60-foot video board, and ribbon LED boards that are 200 feet in length on both the east and west fascia. 

In addition to two surface parking lots with 1,600 spaces and a 1,700-foot asphalt loop road with two bus pullouts, site work included grading, underground utilities, a storm water system with underground detention pond, lighting, landscaping, and a stormwater drainage system.
