About Cheney Stadium
Since 1960, Cheney Stadium has stood proudly as an anchoring crown jewel in the heart of Central Tacoma. In 2010, the stadium fondly regarded as "R House" underwent a massive transformation to compete as a state-of-the-art entertainment venue in the modern era of professional sports. Once merely the grounds for the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers baseball team, Cheney Stadium is now also home to a pair of professional soccer clubs: Reign FC of the National Women's Soccer League and Tacoma Defiance, the highest-level USL squad for Seattle Sounders FC.
