USL adds stadium design provider to roster of preferred suppliers

The United Soccer Leagues (USL) has announced Odell as its preferred stadium design provider. Financial terms of the two-year agreement have not been disclosed, but the partnership will make Odell a preferred supplier for all related properties, including the USL, USL Division III, the Premier Development League (PDL) and the Super Y League.

The Odell Sports & Entertainment Studio is headed up by Michael Woollen, and has worked on public assembly projects in cities across the USA. The designers and other professionals specialize in arenas, civic centers, stadia, sports complexes, and other public assembly venues.
