CityPark Stadium is an open-air venue in St. Louis, Missouri that is the home stadium of St. Louis City SC. The stadium hosts approximately 17-20 regular season games plus up to three exhibition games each year. Construction started in 2020 and the stadium opened on November 16th, 2022, with a friendly match between St. Louis City 2 and Bayer 04 Leverkusen of the German Bundesliga. The seating capacity of CityPark Stadium is approximately 22,500.

After several unsuccessful attempts to create a soccer team in St. Louis, a new investor initiative was created in 2018, with financial backing and support from local officials. In August 2019, MLS authorities announced the granting of a license to the future St. Louis-based club starting with the 2023 season. Site preparation began for its new, soccer-specific stadium in February 2020. In February 2022, it was announced that a 15-year sponsorship agreement had been signed with healthcare company Centene Corporation, under which the facility will be named Centene Stadium.
