The Rochester Rhinos are making moves.
Rochester Stadium Operations, LLC, the operating company for Marina Auto Stadium and the Rochester Rhinos have announced today that they got approval from the United Soccer League to join USL Division III by the 2020 season, and has begun to pursue a potential new stadium development in the region. They plan to move out of Marina Auto Stadium by the end of the year.
Rhinos Co-Owners David and Wendy Dworkin released a statement saying in part “After careful consideration and discussions with a number of our stadium partners and the United Soccer League, and after assessing the totality of our last three years as a tenant of the City of Rochester, we have determined that it is time for the Rochester Rhinos to move on from this venue.”
The Dworkins say they have preliminary identified several possible sites within Monroe County where a new multi-purpose stadium could be built.
